A one-day information session will be delivered in Sydney on Friday 15 June by Paul Dillon, for teachers and other professionals who work with young people
Paul Dillon has delivered professional development seminars for teachers and other professionals for many years. Since 2014 he has been presenting DARTA Seminar Days across the country and has received an overwhelmingly positively response from delegates.
The one-day information session aims to provide teachers with some basic information on current youth AOD trends in Australia, with a particular emphasis on school-based young people. Using the most up-to-date statistics and research, the workshop aims to empower attendees by providing the facts around some of the issues in this controversial area.
Although the workshop is not designed to provide teaching strategies or classroom activities, a list of quality web-based drug education resources will be provided to attendees, as well as information on other websites that are able to support professionals who work with young people.
Specific topic areas to be covered for each of the sessions will be made closer to the date, but please note that if you have attended a DARTA Seminar Day in the past the content will not be the same as for previous sessions.
Drug and Alcohol Research and Training Australia Pty Ltd (DARTA) is endorsed to provide NESA Registered Professional Development for teachers accredited at Proficient Teacher Level.
Attendance at the DARTA Seminar Day 2018 will contribute 5.5 hours of NESA Registered PD towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
