Teacher and SLT Support
Gaining staff support to tackle smoking in college is important. It may be helpful to outline the various ways in which a reduction in smoking prevalence can benefit the college eg less absence from students and reduced litter on site. It is also helpful to directly address some of the concerns that other staff may have.
Having a lead teacher who takes responsibility for the smokefree agenda is very important. They need the time and support to carry out the role effectively, with the work identified clearly in their yearly objectives.
