How to engage with schools – Educational Engagement Programme (EEP)
CEMEX invest heavily in working with the community and have a lot of experience in running school engagement programmes. They have created a package of resources that local teams across the UK have been turning into interesting and engaging events for children that support teachers and parents in road safety education.
The aim of these events is to deliver simple presentations about the key points on road safety and provide a truck exchanging places experience – whereby the kids get to sit in the cab and learn about how key it is to be seen and be safe and to ‘look out before you step out’.
The vulnerable road user message on pedestrian and cyclist road safety is key amongst the younger age group
CEMEX have shared with CLOCS their approach to schools, their presentation and supporting materials so that all CLOCS Champions can put together their own events.
Who on your team can get involved?
Anyone - logistics managers, operational and site teams, drivers, construction site teams, communications staff etc.
CLOCS has prepared some draft emails for engaging the team and approaching schools based on the CEMEX templates. You can download these and a variety of other materials below that we hope will provide you with useful forms, processes and ideas.
