Smoking and Young People is a short e-learning course (1.5 hours) designed for anyone working in a youth work role. It focuses on how smoking impacts young people, providing up-to-date information on smoking and young people in Scotland, including young peoples’ attitudes and knowledge; smoking, e-cigarettes and other substances; and tobacco industry tactics in recruiting young people.
It also explores youth work’s role in engaging young people to stay smoke-free, and supporting young people to quit smoking, highlighting resources and strategies to enable youth workers to confidently discuss smoking with the young people they work with.
This course is complemented by our youth work resources, Tobacco-free Generation, designed to support youth workers to deliver activities to help equip young people to make confident and responsible decisions on smoking and their health and wellbeing.
