Managing Educational Visits (Sheffield) July 2019
This half-day session provides Astrea Academy Principals with the opportunity to consider the Trust’s Educational Visits Policy and its key requirements to ensure effective management and conduct of off-site educational visits. Key elements which will be looked at in detail include: the role of the Educational Visits Co-ordinator; visit notification and approval timescales and requirements; legal framework and responsibilities for educational visits; using the Evolve system; staff training, qualifications and competence for different visit and activity types; access to support, advice and guidance; and monitoring and quality assurance processes.
This one-day training course follows the nationally recognised Educational Visits Co-ordinator (EVC) Training framework set out by the Outdoor Education Advisers’ Panel. The three morning sessions focus on the role of the Educational Visits Co-ordinator along with important aspects of off-site visit management, oversight and planning. The afternoon sessions focus on the specific details of the Astrea Academy Trust’s educational visits policy, guidance, systems and processes. The final hour is set aside to provide time to address participants’ individual issues in detail.
