Cannabis Makes the Grade: A resource to support the development of a ‘cannabis competent’ workforce in the AOD sector, developed by NCETA. This resource provides guidance to VET practitioners, from frontline trainers and course coordinators through to RTO managers on where and how to incorporate cannabis-related content into AOD training.
The resource uses units of competencies from AOD qualifications in the Community Services Training Package as a mechanism to organise cannabis training content and assessment activities. Training content is aligned to elements and performance criteria, while assessment activities are aligned to underpinning skills and knowledge.
Three Units of Competency from the AOD qualifications in the Community Services Training Package are provided as a guide to how cannabis content can be folded into teaching programs. Cannabis-specific learning and assessment activities, aligned to the elements of competency and underpinning skills and knowledge in the units, are provided.
The resource is accompanied by Cannabis Makes the Grade: Exploring cannabis content in accredited AOD training, a set of PowerPoint slides for VET practitioners to use when incorporating cannabis content into their teaching program.
Alcohol Education in Australian Schools: Report and Information Sheet
This information booklet consolidates findings of a systematic review about alcohol education programs in schools. The booklet provides educators with readily accessible information about the programs which have been found to be effective in delaying and/or reducing alcohol use amongst students as well as building resilience. It also details programs which have been demonstrated to have little impact and/or negative effects.
