EOTC Guidelines

We have updated the EOTC Guidelines – Bringing the Curriculum Alive to align with:

  • The Health and Safety at Work Act 2015
  • The Vulnerable Children Act 2014; and
  • The Health and Safety at Work (Adventure Activities) Regulations 2016

The primary purpose of these guidelines is to support teaching and learning of the national curriculum. The guidelines may also be applied more broadly as a good-practice guide for other activities that schools are associated with.

This kete supports safe and effective curriculum-based teaching and learning that extends beyond the classroom walls. The tool kits contain a selection of sample forms and templates that reflect the current good practices and procedures for EOTC safety. The tool is intended to assist you to refine your systems for EOTC management and meet your legal requirements and good practice responsibilities.

NB: Please note the guidelines are available online only. Hard copies were not printed because outdoor education best practices tend to change relatively frequently and presenting the guidelines as an online resource will allow real-time updates to be done as required.
