Drug Awareness Training

Substance Misuse Training

As more young people use illegal drugs than ever before, ‘new’ drugs become worryingly readily available. Prosecutions amongst young people for supplying Class A drugs is indicative of a rise in child criminal exploitation such as ‘county lines’. At the same time, more young people are turning to social media for information, where screening of content is negligible and platforms are infiltrated by drug dealers. Where a young person is involved in a drug-related incident, non-statutory guidance advises that they should have early access to support and that exclusions should be treated as a last resort, so as not to erode trust in authority figures, leading to increased likelihood of drug use or exploitation, and the damaging impact on life chances. These developments urgently demand high-quality drugs education for young people and and their educators -our drugs misuse training for professionals is designed to provide a foundation of knowledge around young people who misuse substances to help safeguard them effectively.

Expected Learning Outcomes

  • Increase their knowledge and understanding of all substances
  • Reflect on the role of attitudes when working with substance misuse
  • Respond to substance use & misuse more confidently

About Our Training

Our courses draw on the insights of young people, families and professionals that we work with every year. We keep things practical by sharing experiences, giving practical tips and advice, sharing good practice, and exploring ideas through discussion and group work. We value discussion and run courses in a relaxed and supportive way so you can build confidence in your new skills and reflect on your development. We bring professionals from different disciplines together in one place to share knowledge and learn about young people’s mental health in different settings. Training empowers professionals to take on sessions and interventions that they may have previously found awkward or out of their skill’s zone. Each course provides not only up-to-date information, they also encourage professionals to take on these challenges and create effective and interactive interventions, lessons, sessions and workshops that staff and young people will enjoy.
