As we reflect on the impact of our work at The Alcohol Education Trust this year (our year ends on the 30th September), we are so proud of what we have managed to achieve as a tiny team of 9!
Nationally, over 1230 settings such as schools, special schools, pupil referral units and youth and sports clubs have been supported with our award-winning AET resources, training or student workshops. As you know, we are able in most cases to support you without charge – and we have delivered 212 training sessions to teachers, SENco’s and youth workers and been involved in 220 other events such as assemblies, conferences and parent talks this year. This includes all aspects of alcohol and cannabis awareness, right up to age 25 – and more recently covers vaping, the law, the effects social and physical, social norms, drink spiking, how to make safer choices, consent and vulnerability. We support young people, their parents and carers, teachers and youth professionals through our four wonderful regionally-based staff who visit schools, train professionals and support parents day to day across England and Scotland. You can find their emails at the bottom of this newsletter.
