Interactive Driver and Passenger Awareness for Young People
Young Leicestershire can now provide a course in road safety for young people between the ages of 13 and 19. Our staff are experts at engaging young people, they will lead, plan and deliver the sessions – managing evaluations and reports. The course can be rolled out over 4 to 6hrs to a group of 10 to 12 young people.
UPS Road Codes aim is to empower young people to be safe in and around cars, before they learn to drive.
We focus the course on passenger and driver safety, with the aim of increasing the young people’s confidence to speak up in potentially dangerous situations.
With the support of our staff, the sessions combine interactive workshops with a chance to practice behind the wheel of a driving simulator.
This programme was redesigned in 2017 to respond to research around the need for road safety interventions and co-created new resources with young people to better resonate with the age group, including cutting edge virtual reality videos.
