about the course

This whole day workshop for teachers and trainers focuses on some of the key areas of concern including:

  • Data on Young People & Problem Gambling
  • Why Young People Gamble
  • Society & Gambling including key gambling products
  • How the Gambling Industry functions
  • What Education can offer
  • Gaming or Gambling
  • Practical Steps with a PSHE focus

Developed exclusively by Seventh Wave Education Group, the programme also shows how to match information to curriculum subjects and skills development.

All of the resources provided in the training can be used as part of a PSHE programme to be delivered by staff around risky behaviours and causes of addiction. They are also adaptable to include discussion of other risky behaviours. Key Learning Objectives include: an understanding of what gambling means; an awareness of the risks associated with some forms of gambling and an awareness of problematic gambling.
