    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. Join Director of Distribution and Partnerships from World Travel Protection, Alex Twiggs, and Regional Security Director, Frank Harrison, as they explains what is covered by ISO 31030 and the benefits of following the standard. Protecting personal data, intellectual property and assets Reducing legal and financial exposure Enabling business in high-risk locations Enhancing your school's reputation and credibility Contributing to business continuity capability and organisational resilience Improve confidence in travel-related health, safety and security arrangements Alex and Frank will also introduce how World Travel Protection can provide further support to schools looking to mitigate their travel risk. Please click here to REGISTER We would recommend this webinar for school leadership teams, operations, administration, travel management and anyone who might be responsible for planning school trips. Frank Harrison - Regional Security Director, North America Frank has a diverse background in emergency, operations and security risk-management planning, Frank joined the World Travel Protection (WTP) team in February 2021.

His work in public security and safety, as well as consulting for the extractive resource sector, has taken him to often hostile and austere locations such as West Africa, the Middle East and the Arctic. Frank believes that the pandemic can be used as a lesson, it is that no one person can manage this risk alone, no matter how travel savvy they believe they are.

    International schools who operate a school transportation service have a wide range of considerations when it comes to ensuring the safe and efficient operations of a transportation service. A well run, safe and trusted transportation service can lead to a more positive overall image of your school, increased enrolment and a positive ROI.

Many schools today are faced with lower transportation usage due to safety concerns stemming from COVID-19. Our panel of experts will share insights and solutions schools can consider to provide a more safe and efficient transportation service that parents trust, including: importance of the status of all buses and students at all times the ability to effectively communicate to staff, students and parents ensuring that drivers, monitors and other staff are appropriately vetted and trained considerations for transport operators related to operational safety and efficiency.
