We provide free training and educational resources to anyone
who works with young and vulnerable people aged 7-25, including teachers,
tutors, youth workers, mental-health specialists, prison and probation
officers, community volunteers and police officers. The YGAM programme
complements the National Curriculum, with particular emphasis on PSHE and RSE,
student enrichment programmes and the latest Ofsted framework around creating
confident, self-assured learners.
Crucial learning on mental health and wellbeing, risk
assessment, money and debt are incorporated within the programme, as well as a
better understanding of why people engage in certain behaviours and activities.
Our FREE online, live webinars provide a 90-minute overview
of our programme and are designed so that practitioners have the tools required
to start a purposeful conversation with their young people. They include
information on the signs of harm to look out for and where to find specialist
support. In addition, a free booklet of over 60 activities is made available to
Topics covered include:
The signs to look out for when an individual is at risk and where to seek help
How young people growing up in a tech-savvy environment are increasingly
exposed to gaming and gambling and how these activities have become normalised
and are part of everyday culture in this country
The influence of advertising, particularly around sporting events, and how this
has drifted across into the online world
The role of social media, in game purchases, loot boxes and Esports
We also offer a further top up sessions tailored to meet the
needs of specific practitioner groups. This session provides a detailed
breakdown of our online bank of resources, and on completion enable delegates
