About the course

The EASST Road Safety Education Pack is a global teaching resource that provides stimulating and engaging activities to introduce road safety messages and behaviours to kids. To date, thousands of children across the world have been taught using the Pack and EASST has heard great reports of children reminding their parents to fasten their seat belts and not use their mobile phones while driving as a result of the lessons.

The pack has been developed in co-operation with our EASST Partners as well as highly experienced UK road safety experts including the UK Government’s Think! Campaign. It has been tailored to reflect the risks, challenges, and conditions in low and middle-income countries.

This short online course will help you understand how to effectivly use and implement the EASST Road Safety Education Pack designed to teach road safety to children of all ages in fun and engaging way.

Why teach road safety?

On average more than 500 under 18’s die on the world’s roads each day. Road crashes are the biggest killer of young people in every world region.

Road safety is vital for children and young people. It is never too early to teach them about basic safety skills. In particular, children are at risk because:

  • They are smaller so find it harder to see, and be seen by, drivers.
  • They are less able to recognise dangerous situations and lack the maturity to make good decisions about safe behaviour.
  • They are physically smaller and so are more likely to be hurt by an impact.

Educators can protect children by teaching them life-saving messages and skills. Making young people aware of the risks and providing them with strategies to remain safe are important parts of their development.

Road Safety is a great subject for engaging children and young people. Even the youngest child will know something about it, because everyone uses roads and road safety impacts everyone.
