Drugs and Alcohol Education

Training is offered for teaching staff to build confidence and skills to support pupils to build their resilience, values and skills around alcohol and drugs.

Universal training is available for all schools that have completed the Health Check.

Schools that have prioritised drugs and alcohol education this year will have access to a wider selection of bespoke or 'in-house' training and support to ensure that they are able to make significant progress in this area.

Please contact kelly.obrien@cmft.nhs.uk for further details.

Please find a full list of training and resources available to support the development of drugs and alcohol education below.



Drugs and alcohol education is fundamental for children and young people to grow up healthy and safe. Effective alcohol and drug education builds pupils’ resilience and life skills around alcohol and drugs. Developing children and young people's knowledge, skills, attitudes and values in school can support them to live safely in society.
