Free face-to-face training and CPD session on the topic of youth problem gambling.
The training is open to youth workers, teachers and practitioners who work with young people, staff from the third sector, youth work and informal learning sectors, leisure and sport organisations and local authorities.
Given the limited amount of places for this date, we will give the priority to practitioners from Perth and Kinross, Angus, Fife and nearby council areas (we will soon release more training dates that will take place in other Scottish Local Authorities).
The training will support participants to:
increase their awareness regarding modern gambling
better understand what problem gambling is and its relationship with other risk-taking behaviours
recognise the signs and consequences of problem gambling
find information on additional support and specialized services
include problem gambling in the range of issues that services already address
strengthen their skills and confidence to deliver activities that address gambling issues among young people.
Practitioners who attend the training receive for free a copy of the Youth Problem Gambling Toolkit.
