Code: BH/21/0940 Emergency First Aid - Adult Social Care

This course is for Adult Social Care staff and enables first aiders to give emergency first aid to someone who is injured or becomes ill. The objective of the qualification is to benefit delegates by enabling them to attain the knowledge and practical competencies needed to deal with a range of first aid situations and/or take on the role of first aider in the workplace.

This qualification is for people who have a specific responsibility at work, or in voluntary and community activities, to provide basic first aid to people in a range of first aid situations.

The programme has been amended due to the Covid-19 outbreak and infection prevention control measures and special instructions for attending this course are attached.  Please ensure these are read and understood before applying and attending the programme. Delegates can also request a full copy of the risk assessments that cover this training course.

Please note: - this course is open to adult social care staff across the council and across the Independent Voluntary Sector. Whilst the course is delivered in a covid secure way, please consider with your manager whether it is essential for you to attend as the delegates may be a mix of staff from different workplaces.

There are four practical assessments that delegates will have to complete throughout the course, and these will be observed by the trainer.   During the course the trainer will also carry out on-going assessment to assess the delegates’ knowledge, skills and understanding related to the assessment criteria.  As there is an element of physical activity on this course suitable footwear and clothing should be worn. 
There is also a theory assessment/multiple choice paper at the end of the course to assess competence and gain certification. 

The delegate will need to demonstrate, without assistance from a third party, practical tasks such as CPR with the casualty on the floor to simulate a real-life situation. If the delegate is unable to carry out this practical assessment, for example, because they cannot kneel, then they will not pass the course and will not gain the qualification.  In exceptional circumstances, delegates who are not able to kneel may be able to carry out the task from a standing position, and this is acceptable.

This qualification is valid for a period of 3 years, and will be issued to those who have met the required standard.. The learner needs to re-take the qualification before the certificate expiry date to remain qualified by attending a full one day/six hour Emergency First Aid at Work course.

Delegates will be provided with a course manual to keep.

Code: BH/21/1463 Overcoming Overwhelm online - 2 sessions (Zoom)



Overwhelm – a personal plan


What is overwhelm and what causes it?

Being overwhelmed occurs when there is too much of something going on – we feel
like we’re drowning or being buried.

This can happen for a number of reasons, but a feeling of too many things to do, too
much work, too much work pressure and too many deadlines can be a major
contributor.

Feeling overwhelmed has repercussions on the whole of our life. It can make us feel
tired, interfere with our sleep and make it difficult for us to think rationally. These
negative emotions can make it more difficult for your body to fight off infections and
can have a physical effect with fatigue, neck and upper-back pain, for example.
Add all this together and it can affect every area of life, impacting our social lives and
relationships on top of the work challenges.

All these feelings distract us from being effective and efficient and that, in turn, leads
to lowered ‘performance’ and sets up a vicious cycle dragging us further down.
This can lead to procrastination (making things worse!) and creative avoidance –
doing things that don’t really matter to distract ourselves or things that give us
pleasure, putting off the real work further.

Online sessions via zoom of two x 2 hours (you will need to attend both sessions)

This four hour session offers a practical and experiential opportunity to understand,
appreciate and acknowledge that different situations trigger people in different ways.

What one person will find ‘easy’ another may find ‘challenging’ and adding to levels
of stress.

Once we have an understanding of our personal ‘triggers’ we are then in a better
position to find the solutions to manage our stress, our workloads, and find effective
ways that enable us to feel more ‘in control’.
