Drinkaware for Education offers free, curriculum-linked alcohol education resources for students aged 9 - 14 years. Using discussion-based activities, role plays and scenarios drawn from everyday situations, the resources make it easy to equip students with the information that they need to stay safe from alcohol harm.
Developed in conjunction with teachers and educational experts, the resources are flexible and can be adapted to suit teachers' needs. Teachers can mix and match which activities to use and when to teach them, and they can be taught in any order. The resources are suitable for PSHE lessons and can be taught alongside other PSHE topics, such as nutrition, drugs or sexual education.
There are 4 lesson plans for primary schools and 5 lessons for secondary schools, including a booster lesson. The resources cover an introduction to alcohol, emotional health, peer pressure, and the risks and harms commonly associated with alcohol.
Drinkaware for Education is suitable for schools and youth groups and can help teachers and youth group leaders to facilitate education about alcohol.
The resources are all free to download from www.drinkaware.co.uk/education
