EOTC Supervision Ratios

Many reviewers asked for supervision ratios for EOTC activities but, as with risk management levels, we cannot give a definitive statement. It is imperative that the ratios, and risk management levels, are determined by the school for each activity.

In the Supervision topic, I’ve linked to the excellent article by Cathye Haddock on the TKI website: Ratios - More Than Just Numbers (

Cathye outlines a number of considerations to take into account when setting ratios and provides examples and case studies to demonstrate them. An important consideration is the assumption that one adult equals one competent supervisor. Depending on a number of factors this may not be the case.

I’m not going to summarise it any further because I think you should read it yourself.

Please share your thoughts with your fellow bloggers after reading the article, and tell us about your experiences in this area.
