Building Digital Resilience in Gaming & Gambling

Open to anyone that works with young or vulnerable people aged 7-25, our accredited workshops cover information on gaming and gambling in the UK and provide the tools needed to protect people from the risks of problem gaming and/or gambling.

Suitable for teachers, youth workers, mental health specialists, prison and probation officers, community volunteers and police officers, all training sessions are Pearson and City & Guilds assured.  After the session you will be given access to a range of YGAM resources such as lesson plans, activities, signs to look out for and where to go for additional information and advice. Our regular workshops are listed below but we also offer closed workshops for community groups or as part of school INSET days.

What People Say

"The course really was fantastic - very informative. I have learnt so much today and I can't wait to take it back to my setting. I love the 'Train the Trainer' ethic, the resources look amazing and I look forward to staying in touch and learning more."
"That was totally brilliant! Design, timing, clear PowerPoint presentation, relating to the group, planning small group discussions and receiving them with wit and wisdom. Particularly liked having us introduce one another rather than “round the room” stuff. The materials are wonderful too!"

Closed Workshops

We know it’s not always easy to take time off work to attend a YGAM workshop, so we now offer closed/private sessions to suit you.  These can be held at schools as part of an INSET day, within a workplace or for a community group.  You can complete the six-hour assured courses or we can work with you on a bespoke awareness or refresher session.

YGAM Innovation

YGAM’s wholly owned trading subsidiary delivers City & Guilds assured training courses for those who work in the gambling industry, in customer facing roles. 100% of profits are donated to the charity.
