Quality Badge Logo

As the National Park Education Service holds the Quality Badge for Learning Outside the Classroom, technically, you do not need to see our risk assessments for the activities we offer. You can assume that because we hold the Quality Badge we manage risk effectively. However, please feel free to use our risk assessments if you need to. 

In March 2010 the Outdoor Education Advisors' Panel publically endorsed the LOtC Quality Badge and the majority of Local Authority Outdoor Education Advisors have indicated that they accept the award in place of some or all of their checks. You can view which Local Authority Outdoor Education Advisors support the LOtC Quality Badge by visiting the OEAP website.
