How education and community rail can play a part in Railway200 celebrations

The Community Rail Education Network meeting on Thursday 9 November focused on safeguarding training and information, and Joe Clay from the Railway Children spoke about protecting young people on the railway. The resources from this session are now available on the Education Network website.

The next Education Network meeting (and the last meeting of 2023) will be held on Thursday 21 December, 10am-12pm. As suggested by members, the session will focus on Railway 200 and what education and youth engagement activities can be planned in 2024 to tie in with the 2025 celebrations.

The session will also be joined by Community Rail Network’s Alice Mannion, who will be discussing the potential for the Education and Tourism Networks to work collaboratively on projects for young people and families.

And, as it’s Christmas, Karen will have a few festive activities up her sleeve – Christmas jumpers optional!

The Education Network is open to anyone with an interest in railway education. If you would like to join the Network and attend any of the upcoming meetings, or if you have any education or youth engagement matters you would like to discuss, please contact Karen Bennett on
