Learning outside the classroom has always been an integral part of a child’s education, providing the opportunity to develop key personal and social skills. The EVC’s role is to help the school fulfil its health and safety obligations for off-site school visits by being involved in the planning and management of all educational visits.
This full day workshop supports Educational Visits Coordinators (EVCs) in their roles by covering the legal and practical procedures required of their position, and providing the information that establishments need to manage off-site visits.
The course is for newly appointed EVCs and covers:
Risk assessment and risk management
Leadership and supervision
What the EVC needs to know
What the EVC needs to do
This course is primarily for independent and foundation schools as many local authorities have provision for EVC courses for their schools. However, if this is not the case for your school, you are most welcome to attend this course.
