Workplace Travel Champions Training Courses - 4 Oct - 8 Dec 2016

Sustrans will be delivering a series of open-enrolment Workplace Travel Champions Training courses throughout October-December. The sessions will be hosted by the Big Lottery Fund and are set to take place in Newcastle, Birmingham and Belfast. These courses will give workplace staff the knowledge, skills and confidence to champion sustainable travel within their organisation; providing them with a wealth of tools and materials.

Businesses that encourage their employees to be more active:
• Reduce absenteeism by up to 20%
• Achieve lower rates of employee turnover
• Improve employee well-being
• Increase productivity of staff
• Minimise demand for car-parking
• Meet CSR environmental targets through the reduction of carbon emissions.

What’s involved?

The training consists of three half day modules, with additional tasks and activities to be completed outside of each session.

Champions will better understand travel behaviour. They will learn how to hold motivational conversations with colleagues, be able to run a number of travel activities and be confident enough to plan future events independently. Workplace Travel Champions Training will also raise awareness of travel actions plans, driver efficiency and video conferencing.

Champions can expect to be fully supported by their Sustrans trainer. They will be given access to Sustrans’ E-Learning platform where they will find a wealth of useful guides, training materials, delivery tools and assessments. Sustrans’ E-learning platform also hosts a training forum in which champions can share their ideas and experiences.

Who is the training for?

Attendees from all shapes and sizes of organisation are welcome. They should be enthusiastic individuals who are already ambassadors of walking, cycling or sustainability as these are the people most likely to be able to lead by example and effect a change from within an organisation.
