Developing a recognised and trusted standard
Our qualifications are aimed at colleagues who work within the gambling & gaming industry, public health, or licensing authorities and who specifically want to learn more about or minimise gambling or gaming-related harm amongst their customers, clients, or the general public. The aim is to develop a recognised and trusted standard in the United Kingdom.
We are seeking to model this on the equivalent of CSCS accreditation as used within the construction sector or SIA accreditation as used within the security sector. This will help to establish a new gold standard of professional training, which we will customise and frame within a formal Pearson qualification.
Below is an example of a Level 2 qualification (at Award Level), based around 3 models of learning, and totalling 60 hours of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) for colleagues who work in the betting retail environment. This qualification can be delivered as a one-day training workshop lasting 8 hours. The remaining 52 hours are self-guided learning hours, which can take place within the working environment with on the job coaching and support.
