Steer Clear has developed a sponsorship programme for 2009 specifically designed to help schools with the cost of training teachers to deliver the Steer Clear Programme.
Each school will be allocated €1,250 toward the once off set up fee of training a teacher.
The sponsorship fund has been sourced by Steer Clear and the Irish Driver Education Association and is allocated on a first come, first served basis throughout the country.
The programme is expected to fund the majority of schools who wish to train a teacher in the 2009/2010 academic year.
Sponsorship funding has been raised through the corporate sector and has benefited from both small and large companies who are keen to invest in Driver Education for young people.
Companies who are interested in contributing to the fund should contact Steer Clear at 01 2022428.
