Safety Management System

European Study Tours is fully committed to providing the highest possible safety standards for all our clients and our Safety Management System takes all reasonable steps to ensure this is achieved. 

School Travel Forum

European Study Tours is an Assured Member of the School Travel Forum.

The School Travel Forum is a group of leading school tour operators who promote good practice and safety in school travel.  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, schools and colleges are meeting the requirements of DCSF 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 DCSF, 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 DCSF.   It has the support of the ASCL, NAHT, ATL, NUT, 'Voice - The union for education professionals' and the NASUWT advises members wishing to organise school trips to use companies that have this type of scheme. 

Details of the School Travel Forum Code of Practice are available from:

European Study Tours, 4 Post Office Walk, Fore Street, Hertford SG14 1DL or visit www.schooltravelforum.com
