Event description

Description

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.
