Engaging external road safety provider checklist

It is the responsibility of school staff to ensure road safety is taught as part of the PDHPE key learning area within each stage of learning and Stage 6 Life Ready course.

Teachers have the expertise in teaching and learning, knowledge of their students’ needs, abilities and the ways they learn. They are accountable for education programs in their school.

While collaboration with external agencies can be beneficial to schools, this relationship should not result in external personnel being the sole source of curriculum delivery in any key learning area.

Use this checklist when deciding to use an external road safety provider. It can assist in determining if the provider supports your school's road safety education program.

For the purposes of this document the term ‘external provider’ refers to any person, organisation or group offering their programs, presentations and/or resources to support road safety education.
