Educational Visits Coordinator

It is a requirement for each school to have an appropriately trained EVC who can advise and assist staff as they plan school visits and journeys. This includes all forms of visits and is therefore as appropriate for schools offering day visits only as it is for those offering residential, activity or foreign journeys.

  • The EVC must have extensive experience of organising and leading school visits
  • The EVC must have a position of sufficient authority to influence staffing for school visits
  • The EVC will assist other staff to complete risk assessments

All GLF schools that have residential and/or overseas trips and visits must buy into their local authority service level agreement for trips and visits and follow the LA procedures and guidelines. Croydon, Surrey, West Sussex, and Wokingham all use the Evolve online system for planning and authorising trips and visits.

Evolve Visits

EVOLVEvisits is an online system for the planning, approval and management of educational visits, sports fixtures and extra-curricular activities.
