Educational Visits - Planning and Leadership - Training for NQTs and new staff

Target audience:

NQTs and other staff who are new to the East Riding

Outline of event:

FULL DAY - The LA requires all NQTs to undertake this training during their first year of teaching. It will be helpful also for any staff who are new to the East Riding. This practical course will help those new to the teaching profession or county to understand better the issues involved in the planning, organisation and leadership of visits and outdoor learning activities, together with the policies/procedures that exist within the East Riding. The course also aims to highlight the potential benefits of learning outside the classroom, and to inspire staff to explore wider opportunities for teaching outdoors.
For schools/academies which have bought in to the Educational Visits and Outdoor Learning SLA the charge will be £35pp (to cover cost of venue/refreshments/admin).
For schools/academies which have not bought in to the Educational Visits and Outdoor Learning SLA the charge will be £180pp.
If a school has a number of new staff and NQTs it might be possible to arrange a course inhouse instead. Please contact the LA Educational Visits Officer to discuss and arrange.
