Scottish Drugs Forum (SDF) Workforce Development Programme is a national workforce development service provided by SDF to support those working with and affected by alcohol and other drug use. We deliver some of the work previously delivered by STRADA.

We work to improve the competence, confidence and capacity of the workforce in order that the interventions available locally aid the recovery of those whose lives have been negatively impacted. People affected by alcohol and other drug use come into contact with a wide range of organisations. Our work supports both the specialist workforce and those within the broader health, social care and criminal justice spheres across the statutory and voluntary sectors.

We view active participation as key to effective learning. Taking responsibility for your own learning, exploring ideas critically within a safe environment and reflecting on practice within the workplace are fundamental to our philosophy.

We provide core continuing professional development modules, tailored training and bespoke courses, and strategic workforce development and planning consultancy and support.
