This is what it looks like to be a responsible school tour operator… there are no shortcuts!
Activ4: Your safety is our priority
At Activ4, making sure that your are safe is our first priority which is why as ‘Fully Assured’ members of the School Travel Forum we undertake days like this… Today we have been refreshing our qualification for performing on site coach supplier audits.
Activ4 is an Assured Member of the School Travel Forum (STF) and in booking with us you can be secure in the knowledge that we:
- Understand and facilitate the needs of educational travel
- Have effective Safety Management Systems in place, specifically focused on travelling with young students
- Offer fair terms and condition and the best financial security
To ensure our health and safety standards are maintained our systems and procedures are fully audited annually by independent experts.
STF membership is the benchmark for good school tour providers; consequently it is an Awarding Body for the prestigious Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge
The Outdoor Education Advisors Panel (OEAP) endorses the Quality Badge and requests Local Authorities to recommend the use of Badged Providers and require the minimum of additional paperwork where Quality Badge accreditation is in place.
This means that you can book your trip with confidence, meet your due diligence and reduce the amount of External Provider paperwork necessary.
So what does that actually mean?
Simple… Peace of mind!
