Provide the student with knowledge and understanding that can be used by those who either personally, voluntary or professionally have a special interest in this field.
The programme raises an opportunity for personal development and occupational competence in an area identified by government policy as one requiring special attention. The overall Government's policy is laid out in 'Tackling Drugs to Build a Better Britain 1998' and the 'Updated Drugs Strategy 2002'. This programme should contribute to the strategy through an educational model.
The programme is a great resource for anyone interested in the subject but is particularly aimed at those who work directly and regularly with people with alcohol or drugs misuse problems or those who would like to pursue a career in these areas.
