Safety management practices and procedures evolve over time. The issues faced by school EVCs change over time and although EVC training does not formally lapse it is good practice for EVCs to ‘revalidate’ their award by attending update training. Many organisations include a three-year requirement for EVC revalidation.
This course gives EVCs at all schools the opportunity to look into current material in more depth and share good practice with other EVCs.
This course will address current issues including:
Trips in a climate of heightened security
Appropriate risk management procedures
Training and monitoring of staff
Online approval systems
A valuable aspect of the day is the opportunity to share good practice with EVCs from similar schools. The number of places on the course is capped at 16 to allow discussion. Feedback from previous courses has been excellent.
Cost: Standard £280, Society members £252
