A bespoke apprenticeship for road safety professionals

This workshop will introduce a new bespoke qualification for road safety professionals, developed by Road Safety GB and Eden Training Solutions as part of the Government’s apprenticeship scheme.

‘Delivery and Management of Safe, Sustainable and Healthy Travel’ is designed to enhance the skills of road safety practitioners working in local authorities, emergency services, the third sector and fleet management.

It has been developed utilising the Government’s apprenticeship scheme funding and is available for Road Safety GB members and their employees - usually at no cost to candidate and employer.

The workshop will explain what the qualification covers and who it is intended for, the commitment required from candidates and their employers, how the course is funded and how to find out more and register interest.
