Identification & Brief Advice – Universities
A recent survey by Save the Student showed that one in ten UK university students has gambled in an attempt to make money. The UK Gambling Commission has warned that universities must do more to protect their students, after an NUS report found more than half of students have gambled in the last year.
Student gambling issues are an increasing concern for universities. Provide your staff with the awareness, knowledge and skills to identify problems with gambling and advise students who are affected.
Attendees will gain practical communication skills to invite students to discuss their gambling and provide a brief screening of their gambling behaviour, and will leave equipped with the knowledge of which services they can signpost to for further support.
This training is relevant to all staff members at universities who interact with students – you may be working in the student finance department, or you may be a clinician or welfare worker.
