Course outline:

We know that the prevalence of children and young people involved in vaping is a growing concern and regulation of vaping products does not support harm reduction. Young people are growing up in a world where they are very likely to encounter and could experiment with vaping or other substances. They need to know the facts, dangers, and myths about what they might encounter, and how to access advice and support for their vaping use. This webinar is designed to improve the knowledge of those who are teaching, and supporting, young people to navigate through these issues. Attendees will receive a full update on current facts and figures surrounding vaping concerns along with information on current Government strategies to combat the sale and promotion of these devices, in particular to teenagers. Options and advice to offer students and their parents with concerns around vape addiction will be provided so attendees can share these more broadly across their school, as well as options on how to deter the current epidemic use of vapes, even on site. 

Training topics will include:

  • Recent trends in vape use by children and young people 
  • The facts and myths associated with vaping 
  • Addictive properties and health implications of vaping 
  • Risk of injury in relation to ‘counterfeit’ vapes 
  • How can workers and volunteers speak to parents and children about vaping 
  • Sources of support and advice on vaping. 

Learning outcomes:

  • Strengthen knowledge and understanding of the trends of vape use by children and young people including current health issues surrounding vaping, and in particular disposable vapes (puff bars) 
  • Increase confidence and competence in speaking to parents and children about the facts, myths and effects of vaping 
  • To be able to answer questions confidently when asked about vaping, its effects and harm reduction strategies 
  • Increase awareness of sources of support, advice and signposting to be able to offer appropriate support to a young person and their parents who are encountering difficulties due to vaping.
