CLO9 Educational visits coordinators training

Who is the course aimed at?

New educational visits coordinators and those whose training has lapsed by more than six months.

In line with guidance from the Department for Education (26 November 2018), schools are recommended to appoint an educational visits coordinator and make sure they have the training they need.  The headteacher has this duty if there is no coordinator.  The coordinator works with the local outdoor education adviser to help their colleagues in schools to assess and manage risks.

The coordinator should:

  • be an experienced visits leader;
  • have the status to be able to guide the working practices of other staff;
  • be confident in assessing the ability of other staff to lead visits;
  • be confident in assessing outside activity providers;
  • be able to advise headteachers and governors when they are approving visits;
  • have access to training, advice and guidance.
  • An overview of the educational visits coordinator’s role
  • Benefits of outdoor learning and educational visits
  • The legal background
  • Planning
  • Risk management
  • Systems and practicalities
  • Share experience with colleagues
  • Help you to identify the next steps
