What is the F2D Year 11 Workshop?
The F2D Year 11 Workshop is the Foundation’s flagship program, working with over 120,000 Victorian students since 2014.
The interactive half-day workshop consists of both large and small group guided discussions and activities where students are engaged by VicRoads trained facilitators. The program also utilises the expertise of Victoria Police officers and Fire Rescue Victoria firefighters. Thse emergency service providers undertake VicRoads approved training to facilitate sessions (when available) during the workshop.
Throughout the day students develop a deeper understanding of the complexities of decision making and risk assessment as a young road user. Students are given the opportunity to self-determine, with their peers, the tools, strategies and phrases they may need to stay safe on the road.
Who is it for?
The F2D Year 11 Workshop is a Victorian program, our teams travel to education providers in both rural and metro regions state-wide. We deliver the F2D Year 11 Workshop to students studying Year 11 VCE or cohorts of similar age-groups enrolled in alternative educational settings such as technical, vocational, applied or specialist learning.
What sets us apart?
The F2D Year 11 Workshop’s content was developed using evidence-based research. We utilise principles of best practice in the areas of behaviour change, facilitation and appropriate road safety messages for our target audience. We do not utilise scare tactics or driving instruction in our workshop, instead focusing on long-term behavioural and attitudinal change and/or reinforcement.
The state government recognised the F2D Year 11 Workshop as the leading road safety education provider for secondary school students in Victoria.
A key point of difference of the F2D Year 11 Workshop is the focus on the behaviour and responsibilities of all young people, regardless of what type of road user.
Three of the most recent Victorian Assistant Commissioners of Road Policing have been Patrons of the Foundation.
