Go-Ahead and learn: transport operator launches new Go-Learn education material for young people
dbda has worked with transport operator Go-Ahead, to develop ‘Go-Learn’ a new education resource that uses the theme of public transport to help young people develop important travel skills.
David Brown, Go-Ahead’s Chief Executive said: “Our bus and rail services have a key role to play in the communities they serve and are an increasingly important mode of travel for the next generation. It’s important for us to ensure we are equipping young people with the skills and knowledge they need to travel independently and with confidence on our buses and trains. Go-Learn is an ideal way of introducing young people to public transport and increasing their knowledge of the social, economic and environmental benefits of using buses and trains rather than cars.”
Aimed at ages four to 14, Go-Learn can be used to support literacy, numeracy and elements of PSHE/citizenship in schools. Materials cover a range of topics including: different forms of public transport, tickets, timekeeping, anti-social behaviour and the importance of teamwork.
