The National EOTC Coordinator Database
All schools are encouraged to ensure their EOTC coordinator is registered on this good practice database.
Currency of practice is a critical component of EOTC management, and the database provides a direct communication channel to that person. Communications include updates on health, safety and outdoor sector changes, links to useful resources, professional development opportunities for staff, and other flags relating to EOTC management.
Registration also creates direct one-to-one access to EOTC expertise via EOTC Support.
The database 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)
For more information and to register, go to www.eonz.org.nz and click on the database logo.
Education Outdoors New Zealand is a national professional organisation supporting education outside the classroom (EOTC) and provides expertise to schools in EOTC management. EONZ works closely with the Ministry of Education, offering a range of initiatives to support teachers in their practice.
