Deliver on Government policy: get active travel training
Our active travel training is gaining momentum, inquiries from councils, consultants and contractors show demand is there for our training package – want to learn more, sign up for training in July and September.
We still have places remaining for July and we have had inquiries from consultants and council teams that want to find out about bespoke training based on specific projects. We want to help as many people as possible understand and implement active travel principles – walking and riding a bicycle – is at the heart of Welsh Government policy to create a healthier Wales and connect our communities.
Welsh Government introduced the Active Travel (Wales) Act in 2013 and has allocated more funds and introducing new guidance provided. Welsh construction can make the policy a reality on the ground, so, designers, planners and policy makers really understand what is meant by Active Travel?
Are the principles of Active Travel Act applied at every opportunity? Do you know what they are? That’s at the heart of our training – it links what happens on site to the concept discussed in a meeting or drawn up as a plan.
To get the best professional advice, training and guidance delivered by Phil Jones Associates (PJA) on behalf of CEWales sign up for our online Active Travel learning and development sessions. Four sessions of 90-minutes over two weeks costs £230/person.
Dates for training are – 6th, 8th, 13th and 15th of July and 21st, 23rd, 28th and 30th of September. Courses are limited to 15 places – booked on a first come first served basis. More dates will be available in the autumn, and we can create bespoke courses on request.
Active Travel is an inherently good thing. All of us benefit from exercise and movement. But it is overlooked, practitioners isolated and often schemes are not connected.
CEWales training joins those dots.
This training provides a solid introduction to walking and cycling and is suitable for anyone up and down the supply chain. From professionals in transport planning, transport policy, highway engineering, development planning and road safety on the client and consultant side to contractors delivering the project. Following the sessions clients and consultants will be able to plan a cycling and walking network, knowing the key issues which underpin best practice planning and design. Contractors will be equipped with a holistic understanding of Active Travel so they can pursue best practice on site and be confident to challenge the plans and instructions from clients. The course allows all construction professionals to think beyond the red line.
Delivered by PJA, our training is coordinated by Just Ride the Bike and backed by CECA Wales and supported Welsh Government and Transport for Wales.
