Alcohol awareness programme moves online for UK schools

It’s aimed at key stage three students aged 11 to 14

A new e-learning alcohol awareness programme ‘Smashed Online’ has been launched by Collingwood Learning, which is being offered to schools for free to allow them to continue teaching PSHE education.

Key stage three students aged 11 to 14 in 5,500 schools across Great Britain will watch theatre-based episodes about a group of friends who find themselves in trouble as a result of their misuse of alcohol.

The series is accompanied by interactive activities, a certificate on completion and is fully linked to the PSHE Association’s Programme of Study.

Chris Simes from Collingwood Learning said: “We’re excited to be using storytelling and theatre in a brand-new way as we launch online. This will help teachers deliver Personal, Social and Health Education and offer students an engaging programme which makes the risks of underage drinking impossible to forget.

“We’re thrilled to be supported by Diageo as we launch our first ever e-learning!”

The e-learning is an online version of ‘The Smashed Project’, an alcohol education and awareness theatre programme which has reached 415,000 students in 2,115 schools across the UK since it began in 2005 and is now delivered in every continent.
