‘Standing Together’ webinars announced

  • Thursday December 31, 2020

As part of the expansion of its CPD Learning Hub, the IHE is pleased to add the series of online road safety seminars produced by Agilysis since March 2020 as part of their commitment to the  wider highways sector during COVID-19.

Agilysis wanted to support colleagues across the road safety sector by providing an opportunity for both development and discussion goals and to create a learning community where we can all explore key and emerging themes in all areas of road safety.

The previously delivered webinars are now available on the IHE CPD Learning Hub – both video and slides where possible. A typical session is 30- 45 minutes long and formed of either a presentation or series of presentations from the Agilysis team and colleagues from other leading organisations, followed by discussion of the topic at hand with questions from those attending.

Details of further upcoming sessions held in partnership with RoadSafetyGB are available at the website and will hopefully be added to the CPD Learning Hub in the new year.
