Lincolnshire Regional College (LRC) provides learners with regular recreational and enrichment activities as part of The Enjoy Programme, and ensures all learners receive equal opportunities to positively engage in activities that enhance existing provision, support learning and encourage social cohesion.

Furthermore, LRC strive to promote the health and wellbeing of all the learners. In addition to the wide range of courses we run, we regularly host sessions to help best develop and prepare the learners for young adult life.  These sessions often include careers guidance, e-safety, sexual health, mental health, road awareness, healthy lifestyle and safeguarding learners, amongst many.

The college recently held Road Safety Awareness workshops, hosted by Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership as part of our road safety awareness campaign. The event is designed for young road users and was fully supported by our automotive centre.

Paul Mitchell, LRC’s Behaviour Support Worker and one of the organisers, said:

“All learners thoroughly enjoyed participating in the crash test simulator, van driving simulator, motorbike awareness and basic road awareness sessions.

“Feedback from the learners suggests that the event has raised awareness of our negative use of transport and the pertaining consequences. The main points raised were mobile phone usage, drink driving and seatbelt safety.  The event was went really well and was a roaring success with the learners.”
