Alcohol Education Course

The online workshop-style course, based on psychological research, is designed to help them think about the impact of their behaviour on themselves and others, with useful knowledge and skills to help them make better choices.

Over three engaging and informative modules, including peer-to-peer discussions, our expert trainers help participants understand their personal reasons for poor behaviour as well as strategies and additional support for staying in control.

Course information

This course is only for people who have been given a referral notice to attend an Alcohol Education Course by the police as part of a community resolution or conditional caution following an alcohol-related offence. To avoid further action and fulfil the conditions of your referral, you must make your booking within 14 days of the date of your offence and have completed the course successfully within 12 weeks

Can I change my course booking?

Providing there is sufficient time within the deadline given by the police, you can change your course once you have booked. If you do it within 14 days of making your booking, there’s no fee to change or reschedule your course. After 14 days you will incur a £30.00 rearrangement fee.

If you change your booking within 14 days of the course starting, you will need to pay a £60.00 rearrangement fee.

For more details, please see our course terms and conditions.

In the event of you being unable to attend or complete your course due to illness, a rearrangement fee will be applicable. But this may be refunded upon receipt of a medical certificate and after review by us.

What is an Alcohol Education Course like?

The course is a relaxed and informative online interactive workshop facilitated by a licensed trainer. There is no police involvement and there is no test at the end. The session is delivered as a virtual classroom using Zoom. If you feel or think you might not be able to participate in an online virtual classroom, please call one of our customer care team on 0292 002 7737 to discuss alternative arrangements.

Original photo ID

You must bring photo identification, such as a valid passport, to the course which will be checked at registration. This must be an original physical document; digital copies will not be accepted. If you do not have photographic ID, you must bring along with you two other forms of identification such as a recent utility bill, bank statement and/or debit/credit card. Failure to produce such identification will result in your exclusion from the course.

Every effort will be made to offer an alternative date, provided there is sufficient availability and time within the police deadline. A further rearrangement fee will be required.

If you do not have photo ID, you will need to speak to the police force who referred you for the course, prior to your course date.

Bringing an interpreter

The course is only available in English and Welsh languages.  For anyone whose English/Welsh language skills are limited, and this will restrict their ability to complete a course, we recommend you make arrangements for an interpreter to help you. Although it is your responsibility to do this, we will need to know who this person is as they will also need to provide ID. Check out our advice page for all the information you need.
