They Say

Kerbcraft is a practical child pedestrian training scheme, developed in Drumchapel, Glasgow, by Professor James Thomson at the University of Strathclyde. It is designed to teach pedestrian skills to 5 to 7 year olds, by means of practical road-side training rather than teaching in the classroom. It is built around teaching three skills:- choosing safe places and routes; crossing safely at parked cars and crossing safely near junctions. These skills are taught over the course of at least 12 roadside sessions. Children are taught in the road environment near their schools, in pairs or groups of three children, by trained volunteers.

This website provides information for existing Kerbcraft Co-ordinators; for those interested in setting up a new scheme in a local authority, school or other establishment, and for anyone interested in learning more about Kerbcraft.

Official Kerbcraft resources, funded by the Department for Transport, can be found in the Resources Section of this website, and materials developed by Kerbcraft schemes around the country can be found in the Example Materials Section. The Information Section provides a wealth of additional information and advice notes to help with the set up, funding and running of Kerbcraft. The Kerbcraft Pilot Section provides information and evaluation reports on the national pilot of Kerbcraft, which ran from 2002 to 2007.

The Kerbcraft website has the following available in the resources part of their website, especially useful for schools and teachers. Manual, support pack, video & DVD, as well as documents detailing Class List, Training Schedules, Child Volunteer Allocation List, Volunteer List, Co-ordinator Visit, Session Register, Incident Record…
