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.
I have been using the AET resources for a number of years and am really impressed with how comprehensive and well-constructed they are. It is a rare thing to find an organisation who really understands how to reach young people in different year groups effectively. AETs resources are pitched brilliantly for different age groups and the activities are just the sort of active and engaging activities which make for effective PSHE.
My students enjoy the activities and demonstrate really good understanding of the issues at the end of their lessons. It is really helpful in planning a curriculum for specialists and non-specialist teachers that the resources are so detailed and there is such a lot of really good, clear advice for teachers on the website and in the resource book. I can set these lessons confident that my staff can teach informative, accurate and thoughtful lessons which encourage critical thinking and challenge stereotypes.
Given the lack of funding in schools it is also worth mentioning that the fact that their resources are free to use is vitally important to schools. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

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.
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.
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.
