The provision of training and development for those working for, and within, the UK substance misuse sector has, in recent years, grown rapidly. Particularly influential has been the introduction of the Drug and Alcohol National Occupational Standards (DANOS 2003) which are aimed at increasing the competence of the broad workforce involved with the sector.

Additionally, nationally recognised qualifications were introduced across both England and
Wales during 2005. Training and development has always been prominent and valued within the sector. Indeed, in the past, a significant amount of training was developed and undertaken at a local level. However, it has been recognised that a national model of training is needed to ensure that organisations have the necessary competence to implement the National Drug Strategy.

This document contains tools and forms relevant to the UK services system.
