The first online seminar to run on The Academy website attracted 16 questions from 11 different Academy members.
Darren Divall, head of the Road Safety GB Academy, hosted the seminar which took place earlier today (18 July). The seminar gave Academy members the opportunity to post questions about the Academy which Darren answered in ‘real time’.
Questions posed during the session covered a wide variety of topics including training and qualifications, whether the Academy has a role to play outside the UK, the role of Academy mentors, and the biggest challenges facing road safety professionals in the coming years.

The Road Safety GB Academy is the professional development arm of Road Safety GB. It was formed in April 2013 as a result of the merger between Road Safety GB and IRSO (Institute of Road Safety Officers).
Complimentary membership of The Academy is offered to road safety practitioners employed by local authority members of Road Safety GB – up to a maximum of 10 places per authority. Applications are also welcomed from practitioners working in the private and voluntary sector, subject to meeting the membership criteria. The annual cost of membership for these practitioners is £35.
