Alcohol Awareness

The recent Government initiative to reduce the number of alcohol based interventions for children and young people has led to new proposals for alcohol education to be an integral part of both the national science and personal, social and health education (PSHE) curricula, in line with DCSF guidance

The Level1Certificate in Alcohol Awareness meets this need; by ensuring that alcohol education can be tailored for different age groups and their learning needs.

It aims to both reduce the harmful effects of alcohol misuse and develop the learner’s life skills, including verbal and non-verbal skills, as well as giving those who successfully pass the examination a nationally recognised Level 1 qualification Certificate.

As part of the ‘BII Schools Project’ which provides interactive activities to promote creative and logical thinking, as well as generating family and community involvement.  The project is part of a community-based scheme and offers sponsorship opportunities for BII members to get more involved with their local schools and raise the positive profile of the industry.
