ASK0134 : Educational Visit Co-ordinator (EVC) Training

Certified EVC Training

This training course covers aspects of the law related to educational visits, risk assessment of visits and the administrative requirements associated with off-site educational activities as recommended by the Department for Education.

The course will enable EVCs to plan and manage their schools’ educational visits and off-site activities in line with National Guidance and current good practice, and thus help fulfil their Health & Safety obligations.

The training will cover all the content outlined below and will be delivered in two parts. 

Part 1 - e-learning (3 hours)
This is the self guided e-learning part of the course which must be completed ahead of the second part. Access for this element will be granted upon booking. 

Part 2 - Live Zoom (3 hours)
This is the face to face element of the course. The zoom room will open 20 minutes before the start time to allow you time to join and check your connection before starting. If you have not completed the e-learning by this time, you will not receive the invite to part 2. 

This is a great opportunity to use this time to complete your training without the cover and travel implications.
