Keys for Life
A total of 44 Keys for Life professional development workshops and 18 Keys4Life Online professional development workshops ran this year resulting in an additional 355 teachers and 135 agency staff trained.
Continuous increases in Keys for Life and Key4Life Online participation indicates both programs positively influence the choices and behaviours of young adults before they begin driving. These positive trends also indicate the program’s content continues to be relevant to curriculum requirements for educators. We thank all trained facilitators who enabled over 15,000 WA students to benefit from pre-driver road safety education.
Fifty nine workshops were held across WA this year with a total of 1,881 parents in attendance.
Attendance at the Keys for Life Parent-Student Workshop has resulted in a marked increase in levels of parent confidence when teaching a young person to drive. Due to the large number of schools implementing the Keys for Life program this year, demand for parent workshops continues to increase.
It has been an exciting year for Keys for Life as the program received national acclaim at the Sixth Annual Australian Road Safety Awards on Wednesday 22 March in Melbourne. Keys for Life was awarded the best Community Program in Australia. The program also won the Founder’s Award for Outstanding Achievements, against 78 other finalists.
