The London Road Safety Council is teaming up with RoSPA to offer road safety officers and elected members the opportunity to attend a free evaluation session.
Having identified a need for training in the evaluation of education, training and publicity schemes during a 2018 study*, the three sessions will explore methods of evaluation using the RoSPA tool E-valu-it.
The first session, to be held at the City of London Guildhall on 5 September, is aimed at new team members and will give an introduction to, and outline the importance of, evaluation.
The other two sessions (10 & 31 Oct) are designed for more experienced officers who would benefit from a refresh and an appreciation of the RoSPA tool.
Elected members and road safety officers wanting more information – or to book on one of the courses – should visit the LRSC members’ area.
*The LRSC study, funded by the Road Safety Trust, set out to develop a London-wide picture of current road safety provision, aims and aspirations – and to outline the concerns, barriers and challenges boroughs face going forward.
The findings are based on in-depth interviews with all 33 London boroughs – elected members with a road safety portfolio, heads of service and road safety managers – and TfL.
The chief concerns raised in the discussions with boroughs included: funding cuts leading to reduction in staff numbers; outsourcing of, and cuts to, services; and a loss of road safety knowledge, expertise and experience.
