Learn2Live Road Safety Partnership Comes to Exeter College

Exeter College news article

Date: Friday 27 October 2017

The focus at Exeter College is always on teaching, learning and supportive tutoring which meets the needs and aspirations of our Learners. As part of this, we provide students with an opportunity to attend Big Tutorials across the academic year including a road safety education event called Learn2Live. This event is run by road safety teams made up of representatives from local government and emergency services including, among others, Devon County Council, Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service and Devon and Cornwall Police. To date over 100,000 Devon and Cornwall students have seen the presentations. 

In the South West young drivers have the highest crash risk of all age groups. This is true for all types of crashes, from those involving only property damage, through to those causing injury, to those resulting in death. The risk is greater in the first few years of driving, when limited driving experience, and sometimes risk taking behind the wheel, can result in disaster.

Providing our students with an opportunity to attend this event will provide them with invaluable skills and knowledge to prepare them for the future. The Learn2Live event this academic year is taking place on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th November. The Learn2Live event is highly impactful and students will all attend with their Tutor/Subject Lecturers to offer information and support. The event is also attended by the College’s Wellbeing Team who are available to support students.

All students attending will also have a tutorial before the event to learn about the event as well as to complete a questionnaire. Students will complete the questionnaire three times throughout the academic year to gain their feedback and to test their knowledge. The questionnaire will also gain learners feedback on how the Road Safety teams should communicate their campaigns to hopefully help reduce road traffic incidents. The event will then be followed up with an opportunity for students to attend the Road Safety tutorials to ensure the knowledge and skills they learnt at the event are embedded. 

Learn2Live would also like to collect feedback and views from learners parents to maximise engagement with road safety. If you are interested in taking part and providing your feedback please follow this link. Ultimately the road safety teams hope to use all of the information and feedback from learners and their parents to reduce the number of road traffic collisions on our roads.
