LRSC offers members free evaluation training

LRSC RoSPA workshop

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.
