This  Core EOTC PLD is for schools seeking to:

  • understand and implement good practice processes in EOTC, and to
  • embed them in programmes and school-wide safety systems


The workshop series comes FREE to school staff and members of school boards of trustees through support from the Ministry of Education.


Target audience:

  • Schools whose staff have not previously engaged with the Ministry of Education guidelines for EOTC. Schools with new staff
  • Schools wishing to implement good practice systems, and/ or
  • Schools seeking support with implementation and review.

Most benefit is gained when a school can send at least two people, including a combination of the senior leadership team, the EOTC coordinator, and a lead practising teacher. Ideally, a third person is a member of the school board.

If experienced in the application of accepted current EOTC management practice and looking to critique your processes and share practice, then the 1-Day Embedding Good Practice workshop is for you.  Check where these will be held this year through the link provided.  If you remain uncertain, contact us to discuss.
