The EVC training programme is overseen and monitored by the OEAP.
It is appropriate for all schools and other establishments whether they are LA maintained, academies or independent.
Courses delivered by accredited OEAP trainers may be accessed through many local authorities and other employers, or through courses advertised on the OEAP training website.
Establishments should check whether their employer has particular requirements regarding EVC training, such as for periodic re-training or a requirement for attendance at specific courses tailored for its own staff.
