ASAP-Training project aims to promote:

  • System and complex approach to drug prevention identifying key stakeholders and conducting system analysis for the EU countries;
  • Prevention workforce competencies and skills on quality standards and prevention science through the design and implementation of a two-layered training process (training for Master trainers and Drug Prevention professionals);
  • The adaptation of quality standards in the different country systems applying existing guidelines.
  • Mechanisms to allow sustainability of project activities through creation of stakeholders networks (supported by »Virtual Community Platform« – VCP).

WP 1: Management and Coordination

  •   the project is carried out according to the settled time schedule and budget;
  •   the project objectives are efficiently achieved;
  •   an effective and coordinated work structure is created and maintained;
  •   the Justice Programme rules are followed, maintaining a continuous link with the EC.

WP 2: Drug prevention system analysis

  • to identify the key stakeholders in drug prevention across EU member states
  • to analyse the different models  of drug prevention system and identifying their main characteristics
  • to realize guidelines for the adaptation of quality standards (minimum quality standards and EDPQS) to EU countries with different prevention systems. In effect of the WP2 work they are going to be prepared a couple of outputs:  drug prevention stakeholder maps (at least for 14 countries); drug prevention system analysis (at least for 14 countries); guidelines to adapt drug prevention quality standards to EU countries (10 countries).

WP 3: Design and implementation of a training on main prevention topics and prevention quality standards

This WP aims to build on existing training tools (such as EDPQS and EUPC) to bring them to a wider public in the prevention scientific and professional community. The training will follow the methodology of training of trainers (TOT). A two layered training process will be designed to train first master trainers (MT) and then drug prevention professionals (DPP). Training will include both presence and distance learning, supported by an e-learning platform.

WP 4: Tools and support for online learning and best practices sharing

WP4 is in charge to develop an instrument, a Virtual community of Practices, for DPPs and MTs to support the sharing of practices, sharing of experiences, the interaction at distance about problems and solutions and so on. It is also in charge to provide a localized area for the MTs with a Learning Management System supporting them in setting up specific local online learning activities.

These two components will be developed as an online integrated platform that will represents a reference point, providing non-formal and informal learning as well as a “toolbox” for the community

WP 5: Monitoring and evaluation

The Monitoring and Evaluation work package has two main tasks. On one hand an Advisory Board was set up to give advice to the partnership on the strategic and professional development of the project and to contribute to evaluation by providing an independent assessment of the outputs and the potential impacts and outcomes of the core work packages. Working together with the Steering committee and the Project Coordinator the main objective is to assure the quality of the project.  On the other hand the work package will focus on the comprehensive evaluation of the two-layered training process, i.e. the training targeting Master Trainers, and the training targeting Drug Prevention Professionals-DPPs.

All project findings, outputs, deliverables and other results will be adequately disseminated and able to the target groups and stakeholders. WP 6 will assure publishing of all materials, brief information, online curriculum, reports, minutes and other materials/activities.

WP 6: Dissemination and sustainability

All project findings, outputs, deliverables and other results will be adequately disseminated and able to the target groups and stakeholders. WP 6 will assure publishing of all materials, brief information, online curriculum, reports, minutes and other materials/activities.
