Switched On

  • Switched On is a suite of curriculum linked, age targeted resources covering three key age groups: 3-6, 7-11 and 12-16. With more than 13,000 trespass incidents a year, the programme explores the entire rail environment – from level crossings to tracks – and teaches students how to be switched on to the risks it can pose.
