Flying start for Academy seminar programme

12.00 | 18 July 2013 | | 2 comments

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 Academy plans to run online seminars on a monthly basis. The seminars will only be available to Academy members, and will be free of charge with no requirement to pre-register. To participate, members simply log onto the ‘online seminar’ page on the Academy website.

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.

For more details or to apply for membership, visit The Academy website or contact  Emma Norton, head of membership.

    Actually Bill, I think on a couple of occasions Darren did ‘phone a friend’ – but they were both unavailable!!

    Well done for being ‘it’ for the inaugural online seminar. An eclectic mix of questions to which your responses were excellent and measured. Especially when you consider you were answering in isolation without the use of ’50/50′ or ‘Phone a Friend’- Well done!
