Young Gamblers Education Trust (YGAM) ‘In The Know’ resource- key stages 3 & 4
A set of teaching resources designed to help teachers minimise gambling-related harm as part of a planned PSHE education programme.
The Young Gamblers Education Trust (known as YGAM) is a UK Charity aiming to inform, educate and safeguard young people against problem gambling or social gaming.
YGAM has developed ‘In The Know’, a suite of teaching resources designed to help teachers minimise gambling-related harm as part of a planned PSHE education programme. ‘In The Know’ is suited to key stage 3 and 4 pupils and aims to explore different aspects of problem gambling with an overall focus on identifying risky behaviour and minimising harm.
With lesson plans, teacher guidance, baseline testing sheets, visual materials and much more, the resource includes modules on why people gamble; probability and luck; the gambling industry; money and debt; and addiction and mental health.
The resource is only available to people who attend YGAM’s one-day CPD workshop. Prices for the workshop start at £30 and the resource will be free to download to those who book on the training.
PSHE Association Subject Specialist Karen Summers said:
"Lesson materials may be used in a flexible way, either as standalone sessions or as part of a series of progressive modules. The variety of learning opportunities provided within the resource supports young people in developing the skills, understanding and attributes needed to make safe and well-informed decisions about gambling and gaming, such as: identifying and managing risk, utilising strategies for managing peer influence and applying personal safety strategies which enhance self-esteem and self-confidence.
This resource makes an effective contribution to high quality PSHE teaching and learning through the inclusion of cross-curricular links and informative teacher reference materials."
