The Road Safety Practitioners Course is a 4 day course delivered as 2 X 2 days, with a four week period between.
Day one looks at basing a road safety intervention on objective data and how this data can then be linked to deeper research from credible academic sources.
Day two looks at educational approaches and psychological behavioural theories.
Day three looks at a number of issues covered in day 1 and 2 in greater depth and introduces concepts alligned to evaluation.
Day 4 looks at evaluation method.
The course is formally assessed. This assessment takes the form of 2 assignments that are completed at the end of each 2 day block of training. The assignments are based on projects the course participants are currently engaged in. The first assignment looks at designing and developing an intervention, the second looks at evaluating an intervention.
The course is accredited by both Road Safety GB and City and Guilds.
A wider range of organisation have now had members of their teams attend the course including:
