All Assured Members of the STF adhere to a rigorous Code of Practice and Safety Management Standards and are externally verified each year by suitably qualified independent Health and Safety professionals.
Choosing an STF Assured Member ensures teachers and schools are meeting the requirements of DfES and Scottish Executive guidelines and that they can delegate important tasks with confidence.
During the course of developing the STF Code of Practice, and in addition to liaising with the DfES, advice has been sought from all leading educational Unions and Associations. The STF initiative is welcomed by the Outdoor Education Advisors Panel (OEAP) and the DfES. It has the support of the ASCL, NAHT, ATL, NUT, PAT and the NASUWT advises members wishing to organise school travel to use companies that have this type of scheme.
Details of the School Travel Forum Code of Practice are available from your Account Manager or on request from www.schooltravelforum.com
