SDERA – Wraparound Professional Learning Program

SDERA – Wraparound Professional Learning Program

School Drug Education and Road Aware (SDERA) invites Independent school staff to participate in Wraparound. 

Wraparound is a professional learning program to help you use empathy and build relationships with students to address alcohol and other drug (AOD) use. Intervening early to address student alcohol and other drug use can stop problems getting worse and improve wellbeing.

It is a knowledge and skill-building program which supports school staff to take relevant action and help students whose behaviour is giving cause for concern.

The Wraparound program introduces skills and strategies to support any staff member in a school to gain confidence in their interactions with students.

Throughout the program, staff are provided with opportunities to practise the skills and to use the strategies introduced.

Who can participate in Wraparound?

All school staff have a role in early intervention and are welcome to attend. It is free for public and non-government schools, and teacher relief is provided.

School staff working in pastoral care roles may find Wraparound particularly helpful. Those roles may include student services staff, chaplains, school nurses, deputy principals, heads of learning area, heads of department and youth workers attached to schools.
