Education and Training

DARTA specialises in providing education and training to a wide range of audiences and can tailor presentations to suit any agency’s requirements in the area of alcohol and other drugs.

DARTA has been contracted by organisations such as the Football Federation of Australia (FFA), the Australian Red Cross, the NSW Minerals Council, as well as a range of state and federal government agencies to provide education sessions on a diverse range of topics. Some of these include ecstasy and related drugs, drugs in the workplace and best practice drug education.

Each year, education sessions are delivered to hundreds of school communities right across Australia, providing information to students, teachers and parents.

Presentations and workshops are also delivered to a wide variety of community groups and organisations at conferences, seminars and workshops both nationally and internationally.

School Communities

DARTA works with school communities to support and complement existing drug education programs. Adopting a whole-school approach, involving students, staff, families and the wider community is widely acknowledged as best practice and more likely to lead to positive outcomes. DARTA presentations are delivered across the whole school community, that includes students in Year 10 and above, teachers and parents.

Other Audiences

DARTA presents to a wide variety of community groups, agencies and organisations at conferences, seminars and workshops both nationally and internationally. These can take the form of conference presentations, staff sessions lasting one or two hours, as well as full-day workshops. Presentations are tailored to the client’s needs and are based on the most up-to-date research evidence.
