About the Course

Duration: 77 minutes (approx.)

The overall responsibility for the health and safety of children on school trips rests with senior leaders. The school management team should ensure that all trips are well planned, appropriately risk-assessed and carefully managed in order to minimise the risk of any accidents or injuries. Schools must be satisfied that their teachers and staff are competent to lead or supervise a visit.

This essential CPD course provides you with the core content you need to ensure you understand your legal responsibilities in relation to school trips and can conduct sensible and proportionate risk assessments.

Split into bite-size modules, the training has been designed to provide maximum learning potential in the leanest, most cost effective and most time-efficient manner. It has been produced in high quality remote video CPD format which is accessible on any device, anytime, anywhere.

Delivered by The National College and qualified emergency medical technician Samantha Kendall, the course has been divided into five modules with a knowledge assessment at the end to help you evidence your learning.

Designed in line with the following policies:
