Organisation Description

The Department of Education’s Road Safety and Drug Education branch is a government funded organisation that helps to keep young people safe, by:

  • targeting teachers, parents, children and young people in early childhood, school and community settings,
  • focusing on the prevention of harms related to road trauma, and alcohol and other drug use,
  • developing and providing curriculum and resource material, professional learning, coordination of service provision, a state-wide consultancy service, and
  • fostering best practice in resilience, drug and road safety education.

The Department of Education WA helps children and young people make safer choices by providing a resilience approach to road safety and alcohol and other drugs education. We support school staff, early childhood educators and community agencies with professional learning, resources and state-wide consultancy.┬áThe Department provides a research based, best practice service that gives confidence to early childhood services, schools and agencies that they are using the State Government’s primary strategy for road safety and drug education.

We also provide access to face-to-face professional learning opportunities, state-wide consultancy and highly relevant teaching and learning resources that are curriculum mapped and classroom ready and endorsed by Catholic Education WA and the Association of Independent Schools of WA.

Our programs are funded by the Mental Health Commission and the Road Safety Commission via the Road Trauma Trust Account.
