- Year 11
The Fit2Drive (F2D) Workshop for Year 11 students uses a half-day workshop format with peer facilitated small group activities and discussions, together with exploration of a case study conducted by MFB or CFA and a presentation from Victoria Police.
The F2D workshop is part of the suite of road safety education resources, including the Road Smart program, for students at Year 10.
Based on research, evidence and best practice principles in the areas of behaviour change, peer facilitation, education, engagement with young people and appropriate road safety messages for the target audience. F2D is delivered by university students who have undertaken VicRoads training program, F2D provides a peer facilitation model encouraging engagement and participation in the half day workshop.
A key point of difference of the F2D workshop is the focus on the behaviour and responsibilities of all road users, F2D workshops do not utilise any scare tactics or driving instruction, and the development of a personal safety plan encourages young people to consider how they will travel at all times and in particular what they will do if they faced with a risky situation or are feeling unsafe.
