AET Talk About Alcohol (TAA) for Secondary Schools
Course length: Half day
Theme: PSHE
Date: 24 January, 2019 13:00

The vision of the AET is for young people to enter adulthood with a balanced understanding of alcohol by equipping them with the knowledge and skills to make responsible and informed choices. The TAA programme is shown to effectively raise the age of onset for youth drinking (currently age 14). Early regular use is associated with lower academic attainment and other risk taking behaviours. Through using the programme we hope to: • raise the age of onset for youth drinking • reduce binge drinking and drunkenness and its associated harms • reduce the amount of alcohol related illnesses and harm in adulthood Each delegate will receive the new full resource (including the SEND resource), online access to SEND PowerPoints, full colour emoji laminates to use in groups, picture and story led resources, a DVD of 4 BAFTA award winning films, lessons and activities

Risk & Resilience and Drug Education for Primary Schools - Oh Lila!
Course length: Full day
Theme: PSHE
Date: 16 May, 2019 09:15

Oh Lila is the story of Lila, an adventurous young hare who breaks the rules and gets herself into trouble before seeking help from the wise old hare. The moral of Lila’s story is that if children get into trouble or make a mistake, it is always better to speak to someone they trust to help them. The story aims to build resilience and protective factors. It promotes social support through raising awareness of how to resolve a problem and develops the self-belief to do so. Whilst the resource does not mention alcohol, it has been primarily developed to support children and young people who are affected by someone else's drinking. However, it can easily be used as a basis to introduce issues such as FGM, child sexual exploitation and domestic violence, through encouraging children to talk to someone they trust if they are worried. The Oh Lila resource pack provides a range of materials based on the characters and themes of the Oh Lila story and is a flexible and interactive tool that can be used in working with children to empower them to seek help, be able to identify adults who can provide that help and to assist in the development of new skills which will help build resilience
