Save the date! Evidence based best practice in alcohol and drugs education - Empowering young people to make healthy choices
A day with an opportunity to attend workshops on effective programmes, tools, tips, planning and evaluation advice
On the 19th October 2016, The Alcohol Education Trust and Mentor are drawing together a group of experts to showcase effective good practice that can be used in education settings across the UK for alcohol and drugs education and prevention.
This conference and selection of workshops will offer teachers, PSHE leads, Local Authorities and those working in the field of alcohol and drugs with young people the opportunity to learn about the most highly trialled and rigorously tested programmes available in the UK. The morning will be dedicated to exploring trends as regards the drinking and drugs use of young people in The UK, Government and Public Health priorities as regards preventative and early intervention work in drugs and alcohol, and how and why programmes are evaluated and by whom.
The morning will conclude with a question and answer session where delegates will be invited to post their concerns and experiences around drugs and alcohol education to a panel of experts.
The afternoon will offer delegates an opportunity to attend training and information sessions on planning a scheme of work around alcohol and drugs education, training in The Alcohol Education Trust Talk About Alcohol programme, and Unplugged introductory training. Delegates will leave with resources and access to training powerpoints.
