The F2D Workshop 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.
Here’s what you need to know about the F2D Workshop:
The F2D Workshop is about keeping young people safe regardless of what type of road user they are.
The workshop begins with young people exploring one of the leading causes of crashes for young road users: distractions. They are encouraged by our facilitators to take the lead on discussing what behaviours are considered risky and get a chance to share about their experiences as a passenger.
A member of the Victoria Police then joins in to unpack the non-negotiable facts and the reality of the risks for young road users. Here, young people explore how the Graduated Licencing System (GLS) is put in place to keep young people safe. In this, they examine the key crash risks for young road users, known as the Fatal Five.
Fire Rescue Victoria also take a strong interest in the road safety space. Guided by a firefighter, the young people are taken through a case study that highlights the importance of having a safer way to get home. The activity focuses on the choices, influences and responsibility around the case study. This aims to encourage young people to develop their own strategies to keep themselves and their mates safe on the road.
We know that change doesn’t happen without practice, commitment, reflection and action. In the final part of the day, young people are given the opportunity to develop a kit bag of strategies and collaborate in role-plays to practise what they could say to positively influence their peers for staying safe. To end the workshop, young people work on their own plan and commitment to keeping their mates and their community safe on the roads.
Costs to run the F2D Year 11 Workshop is dependent on student number, location of the school, and local funding availability.
