Embedding Good Practice Systems for EOTC


This 1-Day workshop, rescheduled after Covid-19 lockdown, drills down and critiques participant schools' EOTC processes using self-review and the sharing of practice. There is a strong focus on three key areas:

  • Testing your system
  • Refining your system
  • Supporting your system

The PLD is relevant to primary and secondary schools.

Please note that the workshop is for those with experience in the application of accepted current EOTC management practice. If the criteria below do not apply, then the 2-day EOTC & Effective EOTC Management for Schools option should be chosen. If you are uncertain, contact us and ask.
