Our Mission

We are a national charity that supports schools, parents, carers, health educators and youth outreach teams to ensure that young people of all abilities learn to stay safe around alcohol. We develop and deliver holistic, life skill and evidence-based approaches that build resilience and reduce underage drinking and alcohol related harms. Read more…

The Programme

Our Programme LeafletsSchool is the one place where we can reach almost every child across the UK. We help schools deliver effective alcohol education to 11 – 18 year olds, provide teacher training as well as an outreach to parents… Read more…

Impact

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.

Our Programme

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.

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.

The Compass School (Alternative Learning Provision) Southampton

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.
