Event Details

Those working in education know that choosing the most appropriate prevention and early intervention programmes is vital to helping pupils develop the crucial life skills they need to successfully navigate the challenges they face. During this training session, the Mentor-ADEPIS team will provide updates on national good practice in prevention to help inform your own delivery.


How do we know what the most appropriate interventions are for our pupils?

By evaluating the existing evidence and integrating successful programmes into our own teaching. By the end of the session, you will know how to access and use the CAYT database, allowing you to make informed decisions about effective evidence-based programmes and which practices are most appropriate for your pupils.


What happens when there is no time or resources to implement a prevention programme?

This is a question many teachers ask. During this session the Mentor-ADEPIS team will address commonly faced challenges and suggest ways to integrate effective alcohol and drug education into your PSHE curriculum using minimal time and resources and without the use of ineffective approaches.  


This training session will be led by Mentor-ADEPIS staff who have extensive experience of delivering alcohol and drug education in schools and youth settings, as well as supporting schools and local authorities in promoting and adopting evidence-based approaches to preventing substance misuse.

The Alcohol and Drug Education and Prevention Information Service (ADEPIS) was established in 2013 by the prevention charity Mentor UK to share information and resources with schools and practitioners working in drug and alcohol prevention.


ADEPIS is publicly acknowledged as the leading source of evidence-based information and tools for alcohol and drug education and prevention for schools. In 2015 the ADEPIS project was expanded to include the Centre for Analysis of Youth Transitions (CAYT), providing expert advice and a database of case studies for evidence-based prevention programmes.


The resources we have produced draw on more than 20 years of work in the prevention field, including eight years of work with the Drug Education Forum, which supported local authorities and schools to implement best practice in drug education.


In 2017, ADEPIS was recognised by UNESCO, UNODC and WHO as a “prime example” of best practice in alcohol and drug education.


ADEPIS is funded by Public Health England and the Home Office.
