New Trip Planning: Support and Mentoring
This is ideal if you already have a trip itinerary, school link or destination in place but want some extra support and advice to ensure your trip will meet best practice standards on safety management. We will support you through the steps needed to develop and put together a well planned trip including safe procedures, risk assessments and crisis management plans. We can also provide easy to use templates for risk assessments, planning and safety checks.
If you are responsible for over-seeing and managing several trips at your school we can offer a review of your current Risk Assessments, Crisis Management and Safety Procedures to reassure you that they meet best practice.
We provide non-judgemental support and advice for you and your staff on how to improve or adjust your current plans and procedures.
Our Consultancy Service can be delivered either face-to-face or via Skype – depending on the level of support needed and the scope of work required.
On-going Support: Our staff are also available on the phone and e-mail to offer on-going advice, support or assistance with any concerns or queries during pre-trip set-up and preparation.
£450 + VAT + travel costs per half-day for face-to-face consultancy, template documents and on-going support.
£250 + VAT for remote review and feedback on your current safety management plans.
"Can I once again just thank you for yesterday's meeting [regarding our Malawi trip] it was really helpful, informative and productive and I appreciate the time you put aside to make it happen."
