Educational Visits Coordinator Training Day: Update Course

with Paul Bond

This certificated course is based on the National Guidance provided by the Outdoor Education Adviser’s Panel (OEAP).   Attendees will take away a comprehensive resource pack provided by OEAP.

Learning outside the classroom has always been a hugely important component of a child’s Education. The benefits of time away from the classroom are indisputable. 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.

Safety management practice and procedures are ever-changing. The issues faced by School EVC’s change over time and, although EVC training does not formally lapse, it is accepted good practice for EVCs to revalidate their award by attending update training. Many organisations include a three-year requirement for EVC revalidation.
