The objective of this qualification is to provide candidates with an understanding of the nature and the impact of the concepts of harmful gambling and gambling-related harm and enable them to signpost affected individuals to sources of reliable information, advice, guidance and support.
The qualification covers key definitions of gambling, harmful-gambling and gambling-related harm. It supports learners to understand the scale at which harmful gambling and gambling-harms are present in UK society, the ways in which they are caused and their consequences for the individual, their family members and wider society.
Candidates will learn how screening tools can be used to establish whether an individual is at risk of experiencing harmful gambling and gambling-related harms and the way in which effective communication can be used to support an affected individual to reduce their level of risk. Candidates will also gain knowledge of the organisations offering support.
