2021 ITS Ireland Schools Ambassador Programme

Call for Participants

Building on our successful sponsorship of the Saffron Science competition held annually amongst Irish secondary schools, in association with eFlow and Saffron Travel, the Executive Board is delighted to announce the introduction of a pilot ITS Ireland Schools Ambassador Programme.  The learnings from this pilot will be used by ITS Ireland to develop a suite of digital content that can be used to roll out nationally to schools in Ireland.

As part of our strategy to broaden our educational outreach, ITS Ireland has engaged with two secondary schools on a pilot basis to develop a Transition Year (TY) module under the banner of “the role of ITS in delivering Sustainable Transport”.  The objective is to raise awareness of ITS amongst 2nd-level students whilst also collaborating with schools to maximise the benefit to students in terms of both learning and broadening their horizons.

The contents of the Ambassador Programme includes a suite of presentations and videos explaining key ITS technologies and their applicability in Ireland.  This is an excellent opportunity for ITS Ireland members to participate in this exciting initiative and to showcase the knowledge and services provided by members.

All members who are interested in participating in the Ambassador Programme are invited to contact us at info@itsireland.ie.  There are plenty of tasks to get involved with (coordinating the programme, contributing to content development, presenting content and participating in the career seminars) and we look forward to welcoming input from all sectors in this initiative.
