Keys for Life

This workshop supports those staff working with Year 10 to 12 students and provides participants with the opportunity to:

  • explore young driver issues, the link between driving practice and reduced crash risk and the process for gaining a driver’s licence in Western Australia

  • unpack the Keys for Life resources that is used to implement a 10 lesson pre-driver education course

  • observe a range of teaching strategies that can be used to develop students’ knowledge, skills, attitudes and values

  • consider the requirements associated with administering the program including authority to administer the Learner’s Permit Test

  • understand how to enrol students in one of the Keys for Life endorsed programs for WACE recognition and/or unit equivalence.

At the 2017 Australian Road Safety Awards, Keys for Life was awarded the best Community Program in Australia and also received the Founder’s Award for Outstanding Achievements, an award that cannot be entered but is awarded by the panel to recognise achievement.

The workshop is free, lunch is provided and certificates of participation will be issued on completion. SDERA will provide support for teacher relief.
