Drug and Alcohol Education Conference 2020

London, United Kingdom,
ISSUP

The Drug and Alcohol Education Conference 2020 day for professionals to 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 PSHE.

This is the third biannual National Conference on Alcohol and Drugs Education and Prevention and in 2020 is organised jointly by The Alcohol Education Trust, The DSM Foundation and the London Drug and Alcohol Policy Forum. Its 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, this is a great opportunity to make sure you are fully confident, prepared and resourced to teach effective alcohol and drug education to students from September 2020 when it becomes mandatory.

For all teachers, school and college staff, and for any professionals working with young people, it’s a chance to make sure staff are equipped with the best resources and training to ensure an understanding of the context and scale of issues young people face.

A range of expert speakers will provide valuable insight into 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.
