F2D Workshop

Fit To Drive Foundation Logo

The F2D Workshop is a program based around road safety in schools. It aims to prevent serious injuries and lives lost amongst young Victorian road users. The young people we engage with get a unique opportunity to explore the complexities of decision-making and assessing risk as a road user.

Road Safety in Schools:

Here’s what you need to know about the F2D Workshop: 

  • Started as a community response to a community issue 
  • Guided by a team of passionate facilitators  
  • Includes both large and small group interactive activities  
  • Supported by Victoria Police and Fire Rescue Victoria officers who attend on the day 
  • Educates on the road rules relevant to the Graduated Licensing System

Points of Discussion (PODs)

To ensure that the F2D Workshop addresses the unique challenges faced by different areas, we have developed Points of Discussion (PODs) that can be selected based on the specific themes and issues relevant to different cohorts. Education providers are encouraged to choose two 20 minute PODs from the boxes below, which will serve as the focal points for participant engagement.

In addition, the Victoria Police component contains important information related to all of these PODs so that there is still an opportunity for participants to consider the multitude of common risks affecting young road users.

Buckle Up

Freedom comes with challenges. This POD explores the complexities for inexperienced young road users, including the Graduated Licensing System (GLS), peer passengers, and seatbelts.

Look Up

It's hard to concentrate on two things at once; texting and driving don't mix. This POD focuses on mobile phones and other common distractions experienced by young road users.

Pace Yourself

If you speed a little, you can lose a lot. This POD explores the risks and consequences associated with speeding and hooning for young road users.

Give Way

Road use is a shared responsibility. This POD puts the spotlight on pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, public transport, and e-scooters.

Night Rider

A Create Your Own Adventure style POD that explores the impacts of fatigue, drugs, and alcohol, while using the roads at night.

Back Roads

This POD is specifically designed for students using the roads in rural and regional settings.

Key Learning Outcomes

  2. Identifies the shared responsibility of young road users in reducing road trauma within their communities (VCAL Personal Development Skills Unit 2).

     

  3. Creates an environment where they practise speaking up, sharing their opinions and hearing from their peers regarding road safety issues. (VCAL Literacy Learning Outcome 2).

     

  4. Invites the opportunity for young people to share their differing experiences with unsafe driving behaviours and provokes discussion around safer choices (VCCCTQ045).

     

  5. Facilitates discussion to think critically about their personal responsibility, how peers can influence their decision-making and the consequences of risky driving behaviours (VCECD022, VCECD023).

     

  6. Engages young people in relevant scenarios to plan, act, implement and evaluate strategies that are easy and effective for staying safe (ACPPS092, ACPPS096, ACPMP105, VCHPEP147, VCHPEP149, VCHPEP151).
