Substance Misuse Awareness
Our Awards in Substance Misuse Awareness are available at Levels 1 and 2. They develop learners’ knowledge and understanding of possible implications of the use of drugs and substances, both legal and illegal. They allow the learners to research and identify the personal and social effects of using and misusing these drugs and substances, as well as exploring how society perceives them.
These qualifications are accredited to the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). The QCF is a new way of recognising achievement. It is a unit-based framework in which each unit has a specific credit value. One credit represents approximately ten hours of learning time. Learners can accumulate credit for each block of learning, or unit, that they complete.
