Drug and Alcohol Education Conference 2020 – Why it matters and how to do it well

We are delighted to be co-hosting the third National Drug and Alcohol Education Conference 2020 in partnership with the DSM Foundation and The City of London Corporation on June 19th. Youth professionals and teachers will hear from leading experts on the latest research on alcohol and drugs prevention, attend a choice of workshops on evidence-based programmes, and receive planning & evaluation advice for effective health education.

Our aim is to ensure that all professionals working with young people are equipped with the most up to date facts and figures, an understanding of best practice and the evidence base, and resources and tools to deliver engaging and effective drugs and alcohol education.

For schools, in particular this will help ensure teachers are fully confident, prepared and resourced to teach Health Education from September 2020 when it becomes mandatory.
A range of expert speakers will cover the current issues, developments and ideas in the field. The hands-on workshops will demonstrate how best to support young people in building their knowledge, resilience and life skills that will help them make safer choices. Although the focus is on alcohol and drugs, the interactive workshops will showcase skills, games and activities that are applicable to all PSHE and Health Education.

The conference is amazing value with a special early bird rate of just £49 for schools and charities including presentations, lunch and attendance of two workshops and £79 for others.
