Our vision is for young people to enter adulthood having a responsible understanding of alcohol and its short and long term effects. We engage children of all abilities and backgrounds before they begin drinking, helping them build resilience skills, know how to avoid and resist risky situations and to look after themselves and each other in a variety of settings.

Where our programme was in place, just 8% of pupils took up drinking over the 18 months from year 8 to the end of year 9 compared to 20% following other programmes.
“The AET’s Talk About Alcohol programme equips schools with the resources and training that staff need to be able to offer a comprehensive alcohol education curriculum to their pupils. In addition, this supports a Public Health priority to see a reduction in the number of young people drinking alcohol and ensuring they have the skills and guidance to make informed choices.” Christina Hardy, Public Health Practitioner, Tyneside

Helena Conibear has spoken to staff and parents about alcohol on three separate occasions in the past two academic years. We, and parents, have been so impressed with the quality of the information, advice and resources provided by the AET… The talks are always well received.Parent Sessions
The resources from AET have been hugely appreciated, they have enabled our pupils to review their thoughts and misconceptions around alcohol in an interactive and engaging way that has fuelled positive and reflective discussions.SEN Resources
As an officer who knows quite a lot around this field I was delighted to find the training not only informative but delivered in such a way that it was engaging and very practical to understand. The feedback from the teachers was very positive. I am very confident in that this resource and knowledge will be transferred to both the young people and the adults within their establishments.CPD training session
