Drug and Alcohol Education Conference – Why drug and alcohol education matters and how to do it well – Rescheduled for 5th February 2021
We are delighted to be co-hosting the third National Drug and Alcohol Education Conference in partnership with the DSM Foundation and The City of London Corporation on 5th February 2021. 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 which becomes mandatory in September 2020.
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.
