Educational Visits Advice and Guidance

Entrust’s Educational Visits Advice and Guidance Service supports schools, academies and MATs to deliver high quality and safe learning outside the classroom using the Evolve visit approval system, allowing all visits to be formally recorded and validated to ensure best practice is being followed.

Entrust has adopted the National Guidance on school visits from the Outdoor Educational Advisers’ Panel (OEAP), and we will help you to do the same, quickly and easily.


This package includes:

  • An Evolve account specific for your setting
  • Use of Evolve as a planning, approval and audit tool for all educational visits
  • Access to a dedicated Educational Visits Advisor
  • Regular and up to date OEAP guidance and best practice
  • Opportunities for staff training and CPD to enhance the school educational visits provision
  • Ongoing advice and guidance


The Educational Visits Advice and Guidance annual package is free to Staffordshire schools that book a residential stay of three days (two nights) minimum, at any of our Entrust Outdoors centres.


Educational visits coordinator training

DfE and Entrust guidance states all schools should have a trained Educational Visits Coordinator (EVC), who can ensure learning outside the classroom is high quality, effective and safe for students and staff.

The Entrust EVC provides training courses along with revalidation courses for those EVCs who have completed a full course in the last three years. For more information or to book please visit


Visit leader training

Entrust also provides Visit Leader training for staff who may lead or assist with leading Educational Visits. This can be a Full Leader training course or an inset session bespoke to your school. If you would like to discuss Visit Leader training, please contact Gareth Lloyd, Entrust Educational Visits Adviser:
