EVOLVE Visit approval and planning system goes live.

group beachThe new EVOLVE online educational visit planning and approval system is now live in Midlothian. A fantastic turn-out at our recent launch means that we have 14 schools (and growing) in the pilot phase. The system offers a huge amount of benefits to aid trip planning for our educational establishments in Midlothian. We hope this system will enable and encourage more of-site visits as it can;

  • Simplifies procedures
  • Promotes efficiency
  • Promotes confidence to plan educational visits
  • Builds portfolio of staff  experience
  • Supports planning – reflection – planning working practices
  • Reduces paperwork
  • Provides a clear audit trail
  • Ensures staff planning adheres to procedures
  • Pre-configured robust framework
  • Manage all Extra-curricular activities – not just visits!
  • Dynamic monitoring and live customisable reporting tools
  • Supports inspection preparation and process of self review
  • Comprehensive overview of all learning opportunities
  • Flexible, intuitive & easy to use

EVOLVE screenshotWe are looking forward to getting all establishments on the system from August 2015 with the previous paper based system being retired by December 2015.

For establishments that were not the pilot launch and who wish to get involved now please contact us ( william.stephen@midlothian.gov.uk ) and we will get you on-board.

There is also further courses available in Visit Leader Training and Educational Visit Coordinator training to support Midlothian Educational establishments in planning and managing off-site visits.
