New Degree in Driver Behaivour at Cranfield

14 March 2007

As we all know, driver behaviour and education is unlikely to improve unless public and private agencies engage with road users to understand and address their attitudes and behaviours. Until now, a qualification to meet UK and EU need for staff with advanced skills and knowledge across all levels of the Goals for Driver Education hierarchy to reduce the risk of road traffic accidents has not been available.

I am delighted to inform you that a new MSc/PGDip/PGCert in Driver Behaviour and Education was approved at CranfieldUniversity’s Senate yesterday. We now have the world’s first postgraduate qualification in this subject starting part time in January 2008. Each module requires one week’s attendance at Cranfield.

Learn more from L.Dorn@Cranfield.ac.uk or attend the Third International Driver Behaviour and Training Conference 2007 (DB&T 2007) is a unique event bringing road safety professionals and researchers together with the corporate sector to debate new initiatives to manage the risks of being involved in a road traffic collision.
