Welcome to the education section of the UKRO Talent App.
2019 Education Workshops
In addition to the learning opportunities afforded by the five Rescue Challenges, the 2019 National Challenge will provide a comprehensive suite of Education Workshops and training events.
With Fire and Rescue Services (FRS) and emergency service partner organisations constantly striving to improve efficiency, performance and deliver value for money, an investment to attend, participate and/or compete at the 2019 National Challenge adds even more value.
A number of the UKRO delivered Education Workshops will be available to non-competitors, allowing interested individuals, personnel from training departments, etc. to attend singularly, receive the latest information and guidance, and then cascade such throughout their own organisations.
The price of each UKRO delivered Education Workshop, also available to non-competitors, has been detailed below, while a copy of each Lesson Plan has been provided or will be available soon (Note: Lesson plans for the Education Workshops forming part of a Rescue Challenge only will not be uploaded):
