AET Talk About Alcohol (TAA) for Secondary SILC's & PRU's
The vision of the Alcohol Education Trust 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.
The aims of the programme are 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 SEND resource, online access to 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.
This course will give delegates:
- a detailed overview of the interactive TAA resources which have a strong emphasis on games, activities, teaching positive approaches and resilience that engage young people around alcohol
- knowledge of both the social and physical effects of alcohol; alcohol and the law; units and guidelines and staying safe
- a hands on experience of using the resources including a full resource pack
- the knowledge of a social norms teaching approach
- an awareness of how parents influence young people’s behaviour around alcohol.
