Course Details

Practical Skills (Module 18)

This module is for Section Leaders and Section Supporters in Scouting. It looks at how we train, coach or otherwise help young people and adults develop practical skills. During the course we discuss effective methods of learning for adults and young people, how to select appropriate training techniques to meet different training needs and will be required to demonstrate how a young person is effectively trained and developed in a practical skill.

NOTE. Each attendee will need to plan and deliver a 10 -15 practical skill session where they teach a small group of 3-4 other attendees how to do something. This can be any practical skill but please have this prepared in advance and consider the resources that will be available at each participant's location. If your skill may require a more specific set of resources please inform us in advance and we can ensure each group is suitably prepared.

Youth Gaming and Gambling Harm Prevention: Online Training

YGAM is a national charity with a social purpose to educate, inform and safeguard young and vulnerable people against the potential harms of gaming and gambling.

We offer free, City and Guilds assured online workshops (delivered over Teams) and resources to enable participants to have purposeful conversations with young people and support them in understanding the consequence of their actions and the risks associated with gaming and gambling.

The latest report from the Gambling Commission (October 2019) found that 11% of 11 – 16 year olds had spent their own money on a gambling activity in the last seven days (this equate to 350,000), and 55,000 young people were already identified as problematic gamblers. The Children’s Commissioner found that a staggering 93% of young people play video games, a hugely popular activity which carries a range of potential risks including grooming.

Our training and materials have been developed for those whose role enables them to deliver the YGAM programme to support young people in making safer choices and prevent future harm. The activities are designed to be age appropriate and specifically cater for primary and secondary aged children and the youth sector.

Topics covered include:

  • how young people are increasingly exposed to gaming and gambling

  • the influence of advertising, particularly around sporting events

  • the role of social media, in game purchases, loot boxes and Esports

  • the signs of harm and where to seek help

  • our resources

The training will equip all volunteers with the knowledge and resources to deliver sessions directly to the Scouting units they work with. On completion, delegates will receive a City and Guilds digital credentials (a digital certificate).
