RoSPA Level 2 Award for Risk and Crisis Management
Lessons learned dealing with real incidents on trips make it very clear that the pressures put on schools during a trip emergency can be extreme but the burden is significantly less if staff have been specifically trained.
This not only includes the trip leaders & assistants, but also the “base contacts”.
The one & half day, Level 2 Award for Crisis Management for School Trips, is directed at trip leaders and teachers who lead or plan to lead visits off site or internationally with parties of young people.
This is a course grounded in practice which deals with active risk management and allows the sharing of good practice together with opportunities to raise issues directly related to your setting.
The course is designed to give the delegates confidence when planning, managing, attending a school trip with a focus on identifying and reducing risk, while giving them valuable experience at how to deal with an emergency or crisis should a situation arise
Delegates who fully complete all aspects of the award will receive the: RoSPA Level 2 Award.
Who Should Attend?
This training course is predominantly aimed at educators who plan, evaluate risk, and lead, assist or attend school trips in an international setting.

Candidates will be guided through the course taking approximately 14 hours to complete the scenarios, practical’s and modular learning.
Health and Safety during Training
