As a development officer in health and wellbeing with responsibility for substance misuse education, I am often asked by newly qualified teachers and more experienced members of staff about the delivery of effective drug education. Staff sometimes lack confidence in this particular area as they don’t feel well-informed about drugs and worry that children and young people know more than they do. On Tuesday 27th March at 4pm Constable Dougie McClounie from the Scottish Crime and Drug Enforcement Agency will be delivering a CPD session on Drug Education. This is a great opportunity to hear the key messages and dispel some of the myths surrounding current issues. Dougie is also keen to answer any ‘tricky’ questions that may arise from this input.
The Glow meet will be of interest to everyone working with children and young people.
