REACHING
OUT TO SCHOOLS

At SNCF, we’re working with teachers to bring safety, civic responsibility and regional development issues into the classroom.

Our educational programmes

You can bring an SNCF employee into your classroom to discuss civic responsibility and safety in the rail system—just ask. Content is designed for students ages 8-18, and there is no charge.

To round out this guest presentation, or to cover these topics on your own, choose from our collection of teaching tools and readymade lesson plans, structured to fit into school curricula.

SNCF makes these teaching tools available to schools under special agreements with the French Ministry of Education.




AGES 8-11

Use the rail system as a springboard for discussing safety and civic responsibility with students ages 8-11. We offer two options: invite an SNCF employee to speak to your class free of charge, and/or use our teaching tools and readymade lesson plans. Resources include a hands-on technology module, a section on navigating railway stations, and exercises on the concepts of civic rights and responsibilities.


AGES 11-15

Use the transport system as a springboard for discussing safety, civic responsibility and regional development with students ages 11-15. We offer two options: invite an SNCF employee to speak to your class, free of charge, on appropriate behaviour in stations and aboard trains; or use our teaching tools and readymade lesson plans. Resources include hands-on technology and automation modules, exercises on justice, rights and responsibilities, and case studies on sustainable development, mobility and the history of rail.


AGES 16-18

Use the transport system as a springboard for discussing safety, civic responsibility and regional development with students ages 16-18, regardless of career track. We offer two options: invite an SNCF employee to speak to your class, free of charge, on appropriate behaviour in stations and aboard trains, and/or use our teaching tools and readymade lesson plans. Resources include modules on various types of energy, material on Newton’s and Coulon’s laws, exercises on justice, rights and responsibilities, and case studies on sustainable development and globalization.
