The National EOTC Coordinator Database network was set up in 2016 as a component of core EOTC support for all schools in New Zealand. It aims to build capability and competency within the role of the EOTC coordinator at both primary and secondary sector levels.
The network is a valuable aspect of good practice in providing a direct pathway of communication to EOTC coordinators.
A school's currency on the database through the designated EOTC coordinator is fully supported by the Ministry of Education and referenced as an aspect of good practice in the EOTC Guidelines 2016, Bringing the Curriculum Alive (p59).
Registration will ensure receipt of direct need-to-know information such as change to good practice, new health and safety information, outdoor sector updates, and other good practice messaging.
Registration is a simple process, taking less than a minute to complete.
|The EOTC coordinator has a central role in ensuring his/her school EOTC management system is consistently applied school-wide, that it aligns with the school’s overarching safety management system and that everyone is involved in the process to ensure safety and maximise learning.
