Lead Trainer & Consultant

Beth Chapman

Beth 2015

Beth Chapman has worked in the expedition sector for 10 years and is a qualified Off-Site Safety Management trainer who regularly runs courses and advisory sessions for schools, charities and at the Royal Geographical Society in London. She also runs a small organisation which sets up school-link projects between UK schools and African charities (www.inspire-worldwide.com).

Beth’s background is in geography and she is very passionate about supporting schools and teachers to have the confidence to run their own off-site trips in-house and to push boundaries and offer new challenges to their students.

She is a firm believer that Safety and Risk Assessments should never be seen as a chore and her core aim is to show her clients how to make these issues accessible and as pain-free as possible.
