Drug and Alcohol Education Services (DAES) guest school speaker service will enable students to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence. Our aim through supported delivery of PSHCE/SMSC is to encourage students to accept responsibility for their behaviour and learn from our speakers’ personal and professional experiences.
“inspirational and educational in the story that she tells. Drugs and alcohol education is such a difficult area for teachers to deliver as students sometimes feel that teachers are preaching at them or have little personal understanding of area; Karen overcomes these issues because she has lived through drug and alcohol problems and can't tell the students as it is. Karen is always punctual and flexible and turns up to her assemblies with other equally inspirational presenters. The highest recommendation that I can give is that at the end of her assemblies Karen always has a long queue of Year 12s wanting to speak to her and find out more.”
“I am an Occupational Health Nurse working on 3 construction sites. I contacted Karen Power regarding a presentation and talk on drug and alcohol abuse. Karen and a colleague came and spoke to my 3 sites giving a very honest personal talk along with a great presentation with interaction of the audience. The event proved very popular with great feedback. Karen has been great to work with, communication excellent in the run up to the events and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to others.
