Visits Advice


What We Do

We provide the best practice advice, guidance, training and support for LOtC and visits, in order to support children's services colleagues and establishments in organising safe and worthwhile experiences away from their usual setting.

LOtC & Visits Advisory Service working with Authorities and Academies

As the employer every authority or Academy has the responsibility to ensure health and safety standards are met within their establishment(s).  Employers overseeing ‘learning outside the classroom’ and educational visits must have systems in place in order to demonstrate, in the event of an accident or claim, that they have complied with the Health and Safety at Work Act and Regulations and have exercised their duty of care as far as is reasonable and practicable.

The LOtC Visits and Advisory Service is a team currently working with Cheshire West and Chester, Halton and Gwynedd Authorities and Academies providing them with access to a competent and informed Outdoor Education and Visits Adviser; a visits notification system and administrative support.

Our offer to Authorities and Academies

We will carry out an initial consultation to review current practice within your setting and to agree a plan of action with the Educational Visits Coordinator.

We will assist with the preparation and development of key documentation such as, the LOtC and Educational Visits policy and Risk/Benefit assessments for LOtC, Visits and Outdoor activities.

We can provide you with access to the online notification system ‘EVOLVE’ to monitor visits and keep safety management practical.

We offer email and telephone support for Visits advice and technical support for EVOLVE.

We can provide you with access to training events such as Visit Leader training, EVC training and Outdoor Learning Cards training at reduced rates.

We can provide training for school Governors.
