Employers needed for RoSPA Young Drivers at Work workshop

1 May 2009

RoSPA are looking for several employers who would like their young drivers (17-24) to take part in free workshops between July and October. If you would like more information on how to take part please contact Duncan Vernon.

Based on the workshops an online guide for employers, and others (e.g., road safety officers, driver trainers) will be produced, containing the workshop structure and materials and a guide to its delivery. This will be published in March 2010.

This initiative comes in response to the recent research carried out by RoSPA into this age group of work drivers. It found that a new driving for work qualification would be welcomed by employers because the current system of learner training and testing does not adequately prepare young people to drive as part of their jobs.
