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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
