Road safety charity Brake is urging the people of Cardiff to improve road safety in their community by attending a training course on Wednesday 17 June to help them to spread vital road safety messages to young people.
Brake is working hard to improve young peoples’ road safety in Wales through Brake’s highly acclaimed campaign work.
Educators, community campaigners, driving instructors, emergency services personnel and young people themselves are invited to attend the course on Kingsway, which provides attendees with the tools to deliver engaging and innovative training on road safety to people between the ages of 11 and 25.
Delivered by an experienced trainer, this essential course includes information on how to engage young people in road safety, key educational messages, and interactive activities for communicating safety information.
All attendees will receive a range of electronic resources, including slides, film clips and links to advice and information, plus a free hard-copy pack of posters and leaflets.
They will also get a free year’s membership to Brake Professional, providing free guidance and tools for road safety professionals, and road safety research from around the globe.
Attending the course costs just £55 (+ VAT) or is free if you have been bereaved or seriously injured in a road crash.
Course attendees are shown how to run discussion-based workshops around six core principles asking young people to drive:
Slow – within speed limits
Sober – free from alcohol or drugs
Sharp – not tired, ill or with poor eyesight
Silent – with phone switched off and out of reach
Secure – belted up in a safe vehicle
Sustainable – only when you have to
