This course is for anyone who is interested in finding out a little more about smoking and tobacco. It will give you a brief look at tobacco, nicotine cravings, available support and nicotine replacement therapy

(although an understanding tobacco section is included in all our other courses, this generic stand-alone module is specifically for those who find that the other course topics aren't currently relevant to their learning needs)

This module will introduce you to the topic of second-hand smoke (SHS) and will help you to think about how to talk to parents about it. It focuses on building knowledge and in so doing, building your confidence when speaking to parents.


Parents wish to protect their children, and many parents who smoke already take some action. However we know that parents often do not understand enough about the way that tobacco smoke behaves and the harm it causes and so welcome information and support.



This course is designed for money advice organisations, foodbanks and community organisations who offer any type of financial advice and support to clients. It has been designed to help inform you of ways to raise the issue of smoking as part of the support that they provide.

The aim of the IMPACT project is to raise awareness of the links between smoking and poor mental health and to encourage mental health practitioners to discuss these links. This eLearning course supports this aim and is followed up by a two-hour face-to-face training session (details on the IMPACT website). If you are not yet booked on a face-to-face course but would still like to do the online portion of the training, please contact Jim O'Rorke on jororke@ashscotland.org.uk to get the enrolment key.

As part of the NUS Healthy Body, Health Mind award criteria, participants are required to complete this stop-smoking and smoking prevention eLearning course. It is made up of 3 modules which are approximately 30 - 45 minutes each and the course page includes links to further resources and documents. In order for to receive recognition for completing the eLearning, each participant would need to complete a quiz for each module and include details in their HBHM submission report.

Sometimes our role is to provide opportunities for people to make healthier choices and be inspired to change their behaviour. This course takes a brief look at behaviour change and how we can create an enabling environment for people to be inspired towards change.

We are hoping to create a list of 5 - 10 minute modules that with include basic fast facts about smoking and tobacco. Watch this space.

We are hoping to create future modules based on the needs of our online community. Please feel free to email us if there are any topics that you feel are missing.
