First LRSC e-learning module goes live
The first in a series of e-learning modules for elected members across London with an interest in and responsibility for road safety, is now live on the London Road Safety Council website.
The module, ‘Introduction to Road Safety’, is available free of charge to all LRSC members and includes information on collision data, collision reduction targets, the role of the elected member, partnership working and the importance of evaluation.
The online training is part of a three-year programme of training for elected members developed by New View Consultants on behalf of the LRSC, and funded by Transport for London (TfL).
Other modules currently under development cover cycling, pedestrians, motorcyclists, older road users and young drivers.
Each module will take around 10-15mins to complete, with an optional assessment at the end and documentation to confirm the participant has completed each module.
The programme, which was launched at the LRSC 2016 AGM in July, also includes an induction leaflet, a series of best practice sessions across London Boroughs, and a discussion and help forum in the members’ area of the LRSC website.
For more information on the resource, which is password protected, contact James Parker via email.
