Online Course: Alcohol & Drug Awareness

Drug awareness

Online Course Description

This course is aimed at school leaders and staff in schools, academies or MATs who play a role in reducing drug, alcohol and substance misuse in the UK.
The course starts with official statistics to illustrate the scale of drug and alcohol abuse in the UK. You’ll learn in detail about commonly used drugs, including cannabis, cocaine, heroin, LSD, ecstasy and some new designer drugs. Turning to alcohol abuse, the course will show you how to introduce a 4-stage plan to deal with any problems – including how to write an effective Drug and Alcohol Policy. Beyond this the course will explore best practice in terms of HR, legislation, spotting signs of drug misuse and the implementation of school solutions. The course also explains how the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS) can help with effective alcohol and drugs policies and the development of related management skills. Finally, it looks at current drug treatments and the options for outside support available to individuals and organisations.
