New digital awareness sessions for schools

New digital awareness sessions for schools

Teachers, tutors and youth workers are being urged to take advantage of our new digital resources aimed at raising awareness of drug and alcohol issues among young people.

“We are calling on teachers and youth workers to get in touch with us if they are struggling to create sessions for Personal, Social, Health and Economic education (PSHE), Citizenship or Tutorials classes,” said Leigh Williams, CADAS CEO.

“Normally we deliver our awareness sessions face-to-face. However, because of the COVID-19 pandemic that is not possible at the moment, so we have digitised them and created Power Point presentations that can be delivered by teachers or tutors in schools and colleges as part of remote learning sessions, via Zoom or Teams.”

One general drugs and alcohol presentation is designed for any secondary school pupils. For sixth form and further education students and for apprentices there are three other sessions available – on alcohol; smoking and vaping; and drugs.

“They focus on educating young people how to keep themselves and others safe, how to recognise the effects of substances and about the support services that are there to help them or their family,” said Ms Williams.

If you are a teacher, tutor or youth workers who would like to get hold of any of our new digital resources for schools, please ring 0300 111 4002 or 07745 266555 for more information.
