Sixth Annual EVC Conference

Educational Visits Co-ordinators’ Conference


This is a Conference for teachers with a responsibility for Educational Visits and other off-site activities in schools.  It is intended to provide regulatory updates, with examples and definitions of best practice.

Leading advisers and prominent experts in the sector will provide clear guidance of the most effective ways to ensure that schools are compliant with current legislation and guidance.  This will enable Co-ordinators to be confident that their processes are approved, and that their practices are current.

Lessons to be learned from events of the last year, recent interpretations of case law, and advice on managing critical incidents will all enable schools to be aware of both how they can best prevent things going wrong, but also how they can manage events if there are accidents or investigations.

With such a heavy legal responsibility, schools can ill afford the consequences of getting things wrong.  This event will ensure that delegates have the best possible information to ensure that their activities are both safe and compliant
