Sustrans Active School Travel Programme – School Champion Training Workshops

Dear Head Teacher / School Champion,

As part of your involvement with the Sustrans Active Travel project, we offer a number of brilliant (and free) training opportunities. These will give teachers, parents and volunteers the confidence to start leading active travel activities at your school.

The training workshops are open to anyone interested in promoting active travel at your school – principals, teachers, classroom assistants and parents. Each workshop includes a practical workshop and information session, as well as a chance to network with champions from other schools over some refreshments. The sessions are led by Sustrans schools officers, and will last for two hours.

There is a range of different workshops, taking place in different locations across Northern Ireland. Please see reverse for further information. Choose whichever topics and locations best suit your interests and travel needs. Each training session lasts for 2 hours and there are a number of different locations to suit various travel needs – you can attend any of the workshops.

Each Active Travel school is expected to attend a minimum of one training workshop. However, schools are welcome to send champions to as many workshops as you wish. We may be able to offer some assistance towards the cost of substitute cover. If this would be necessary for you to be able to attend a workshop, please let us know.

To secure your place, please complete and return (by email or post) the attached booking form, by Friday 30th January.

We very much look forward to welcoming you or your school champions on the day.

If you have any questions, please get in touch.

Yours sincerely,

Beverley Gaston
