New programme of drug and alcohol education courses launched

An organisation that provides information and training about drugs and alcohol, substance misuse and health and social care is launching its new programme of courses for the forthcoming year.

Let’s Build, a charity working in partnership with Nottinghamshire Healthcare, also offers training in workforce policy development, Diplomas in Health and Social Care, Teacher Training and Chartered Management Institute qualifications and much more. Courses range from one day informal training to formal qualifications requiring a longer period of study.

Training is available to volunteers, professionals, community groups, youth clubs and people and organisations from the public and private sectors. To complement the programme of courses, Let’s Build also offers bespoke training, tailored to suit specific needs.

The new prospectus will be officially launched at an event in Mansfield on Friday 18 March. Anyone wishing to find out more can go along to the event where the Let’s Build team will be on hand throughout the day to answer any queries about training needs and the most appropriate courses for individuals or organisations.

Let’s Build Manager, Liz Phillips said: “We are really excited about this new programme of courses. There really is something for everyone who could benefit from learning more about issues about drugs and alcohol and substance misuse. Various funding schemes are also available to enable people to access courses. For example, for community and voluntary groups, recovering drug and alcohol users or parents and carers of long term users. I would urge anyone interested to either come along to our launch or give us a call to find out more.”

All Let’s Build courses support The Drugs and Alcohol National Occupations Standards (DANOS), which specify the standards of performance that people in the drug and alcohol field should be working towards.
