Youth workers and teachers lack alcohol education support

Children and Young People Now:

Three-fifths of professionals working with under-18s do not have the support and information they need to provide education about alcohol, according to a report by charity Drinkaware.

The Telegraph also have the story:

On average, teenagers said that they had their first drink at 13 and were just 14 the first time they became properly drunk.

The teenagers were less concerned about getting drunk than about leaving education without any qualifications, having unsafe sex or taking recreational drugs, the survey, by the charity Drinkaware, which is funded by the alcohol industry, found.

Drinkaware have a press release and a number of videos, one of which I’ve embedded below.
