2021 DARTA Webinars for Teachers
The first DARTA webinar for teachers was held in 2020 and examined the issue of vaping and schools. This was extremely successful and there have been requests to provide similar information sessions around other topics in relation to school-based young people. Two one-hour webinars have been planned for Term 4 and they are as follows:
- Monday, 18 October: Vaping – ‘short and sweet’: What do teachers need to know?
- Wednesday, 20 October: School-based young people and alcohol and other drugs: Hot topics 2021
They will run from 3.30-4.30pm. Details regarding how to register for these sessions will be made available soon.
2021 DARTA Seminar Day
Since 2014 Paul has been presenting DARTA Seminar Days across the country and they have received an overwhelmingly positive response from those who have attended. These one-day seminars aim to provide teachers, as well as others who work with young people, with information on current youth AOD trends in Australia, with a particular emphasis on school-based young people.
We now have a confirmed date for this year’s DARTA Seminar Day – so if you are interested in attending mark Friday, 5 November 2021 in your calendar. Once again it will be held at the Adina Hotel on Crown St, Surry Hills.
As in previous years, the one-day seminar will provide teachers with information on current youth AOD trends in Australia, with a particular emphasis on school-based young people. Registration details will be announced soon.
