    • Travel is a part of regular operations at International Schools - whether that’s staff travelling from their home country to the school, or students going on international trips and this brings inherent risks.  It is a legal requirement with significant implications that risks associated with travel are mitigated.  Now the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has created a framework to guide organisations on managing travel risks, which was released in September. 

      While travel risk management has been a key part of an organisation's legal, compliance and duty of care responsibilities for some time, this is the first globally recognised standard. Meeting these standards will showcase your school's commitment to traveller safety, help you stand out as an employer and school of choice, and provide peace of mind to your travel managers, staff and families that you have mitigated all foreseeable risk.

      Please see the attached document for insights on how to mitigate travel risk.

      COVID-19 has been a heavy focus on International School Management for the past 18 months and now that students in most schools around the world have returned to campus, it is important that schools plan for the safety and security of their communities for a variety of threats and emergencies that they may face. International schools promise to provide and maintain a safe, orderly and healthy environment; yet, each school faces unique threats and hazards and, based on their location, can expect different levels of outside emergency response services that may not be as robust or as effective as in some other countries. 
      This roundtable discussion will focus on the main threats, beyond COVID-19, that International Schools are concerned with today.  In addition, we will address the key stages necessary for preparedness at International Schools which include:
      Prevention and Mitigation Preparedness Response Recovery  Communication  The responsibility for preparedness along with the training of stakeholders is the responsibility of school leaders.  
      This session will be hosted by Mike Johnson, Managing Director of Clearpath EPM and facilitated by Kevin Lloyd, CCO of Together School
      Please register here This session will be limited to 8 schools to facilitate an effective discussion.
