We are holding a demonstration event of the new EVOLVE system on the 24th Feb 2015 and representatives from Midlothian Council Educational Establishments are invited to attend.

This new system for Midlothian establishments will replace the current EV1 system. This system will change how educational and community establishments plan, manage report and evaluate off site activity. It’s designed to remove barriers and adopt a low bureaucracy approach to all offsite visits. This will result in more visits!!

The session on the 24th Feb 2014 at the Lasswade High School Centre, Conference Room 1600-1700, will cover;

  • EVOLVE Overview
  • Benefits to Educational Establishments
  • Demonstration
  • Pilot Phase details
  • Further Training
  • Going Live
  • Next steps

Who Should attend?:  Educational Visit Coordinators & staff currently approving and coordinating visits within educational establishments, CPD co-ordinators, staff involved in regular trip planning.

In order to manage the logistics of the session, which we expect to be very busy, could you please let us know who, from your establishment, would wish to attend.  You can do this by emailing:


Delegates will be able to nominate their establishment to join the pilot phase of the system during attendance on the 24th.

We look forward to seeing you then – Slides from the recent meetings with more details can be found by clicking on image above. Further information is also available on the EVOLVE system at the Edufocus website.
