In 2014 and 2015 College Tutors told us…………
“First of all, the organisation and transport was really efficient and smooth. I was in Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue prior to teaching and have attended many Road Traffic Collisions over the years. The impact on the students has been striking and the experience has had a profound effect on them. Listening first hand to the raw and powerful accounts of the bereaved parent and rescue workers brought home the message in a way that communicated really well to this target group.
Please pass on our thanks to everyone concerned in the initiative and let us know if the programme will be repeated next year as the presentation should be essential safeguarding education for all students.”
Tony Greenhalgh, Lecturer in Public Services, Bury College.
“We would just like to say thankyou for inviting us to the ‘Safe Drive Stay Alive’ roadshow yesterday. The performance was very hard hitting and emotional and we believe that the performance will leave a lasting impression on our students as they learn to drive.
I strongly believe that a version of the performance should be incorporated into the driving test alongside the theory test that young drivers now have to take.”
Tracey Witter, Head of 6th Form, Rivington and Blackrod High School
“We attended the Safe Drive stay Alive seminar last Tuesday 10th November and it was excellent. Thank you to everyone involved for putting this on, and making it so easy for colleges by providing transport. I’m sure that raising awareness in this way will help young drivers to be responsible on the roads and reduce the number of horrific accidents involving young people.”
Anthea Friend, The Deanery 6th Form, Wigan
