Ensuring the promotion of high quality alcohol and drug education and prevention

Mentor is a leading national charity working to build young people’s resilience in order to prevent harm, particularly in relation to substance misuse. The Alcohol and Drug Education and Prevention Information Service (ADEPIS) is recognised by leaders in education and government as the leading source of evidence-based information and tools for alcohol and drug education and prevention for schools.

To help schools and practitioners deliver the best, evidence-based practice in drug education, we developed the Mentor-ADEPIS Quality Standards for effective alcohol and drug education. These standards form the basis of the following training and consultancy services:

  • The Mentor Quality Assessment and Review for schools and other educational settings
  • The Mentor Quality Mark for Providers of alcohol and drug education for young people
  • A Service Review and Support for local authorities

These services and tools are suitable for: primary and secondary schools; academies and other educational settings; as well as external providers of alcohol and drug education. Local authorities can also signpost educators in their community to these services and tools as a means of improving local provision.

As part of these services, Mentor can also offer bespoke input from our Youth Panel to youth-proof alcohol and drug policy or services. Our Youth Panel is made up of young people from varying backgrounds who are skilled in providing advice, input or feedback on specific issues. This can either be remotely, via focus groups or on a 1:1 basis.
