Eligibility to enrol

To register for this workshop, attendance at either a Safer Kids or Keys for Life workshop conducted by SDERA is required.



“When one of our students was nearly killed while crossing the road near the school, we decided it was time to look at what we could do to educate our students, educate parents and assess the traffic environment. This workshop did all of that and the resource has everything we need to start the process with support from the SDERA consultants.” 

“We had been running road safety in our health programs using the Challenges and Choices resources which was a great start to our whole school approach. The staff then agreed that we needed to look at developing guidelines so we sent two of our staff along to the workshop. They came back with samples of School Drug Education Guidelines which we used to start developing our own."
