Peer Alcohol Education Toolkit for use with Secondary School Students aged 11 to 18 years old available at £36.95
Tacade has undertaken both a pilot and an extended peer alcohol education project in secondary schools recently. The toolkit contains materials that will enable a school to develop a peer alcohol education project based upon the outcomes of the successful projects. It will act as a flexible resource base for a project, containing:
- A CD Rom with three sections: Statistics on young people and drinking; What makes effective alcohol education?; and Peer Alcohol Education - what makes it work? This has been trialled for use with young people, and for presentations to teachers, learning mentors, school nurses, governors and parents.
- Background information on peer alcohol education, including case studies
- Practical tools for developing a project, including recruiting peer educators and activities for use with students on peer education and alcohol issues.
‘I can only state how positive the peer education project has been’
‘The teachers present on the evening, and ones I have subsequently seen have all been very appreciative to Lions for the sponsorship of this resource, which they feel will be useful to plan a peer alcohol education project, and lessons. They are especially impressed with the CD Rom which will allow them to use specific sections when required for lessons. We hope that young people can make healthy informed choices when it comes to drinking alcohol in their formative years, and the resource will be very beneficial ensuring they receive suitable information’.

Peer Alcohol Education Project
Tacade has been working with the Dublin Lions Club since 2005 to deliver training to teachers in Dublin, Galway, Mullingar, Thurles and Sligo to enable them to develop peer alcohol education projects with students in their local schools. The project has proved to be an outstanding success.
‘This is an experience that I would strongly recommend to other schools, immensely enjoyable and thoroughly rewarding'
