Code: BH/22/0290 First Aid at Work (3 day) - for council employees and schools ONLY
Who is this course for?
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.
This course is for those that will be acting as lead First Aiders in their workplace and will provide delegates with a recognised First Aid at Work qualification. Upon completion of the course, First Aiders will be able to take control and provide assistance in an emergency situation at their workplace. They will be able to respond to an accident or illness promptly, effectively and safely.
What does the trainng cover?
Topics covered include: resuscitation and CPR, dealing with wounds, bleeding, burns, scalds, heart conditions and minor injuries.
How are delegates assessed?
There are six practical assessments, observed by the trainer throughout the course and two theory assessment/multiple choice question papers.
In addition, the trainer will carry out on-going assessment to assess the delegates knowledge, skills and understanding related to the assessment criteria.
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 unable to kneel, may be able to carry out the task from a standing position, and this is acceptable.
On passing the course, the delegate will be issued with a First Aid at Work certificate valid for a period of 3 years.
Delegates willl need to retake the qualification before their certificate expiry date to remain qualified, by attending a two day First Aid at Work Re-Certification course.
When attending a two day Re-Certification course, delegates must be aware that the syllabus is covered at a significantly faster pace, in the understanding that learners are familiar with the topics.
If an employee’s certificate expires, they are no longer considered competent to act as a First Aider in the workplace. It is the responsibility of the delegate to ensure they book on to a Re-certification course before their certificate expires.
IMPORTANT - the first aid training programme has been amended due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Infection prevention control measures and special instructions for attending this course are provided in the attached guidance document. Please ensure that this is read and understood before applying and attending this course. Delegates can also request a copy of the risk assessments that cover this training course.
Please note: 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 will be a mix of staff from different workplaces.
Code: BH/22/0960 Impact of Sexual Violence and Abuse
The impact of rape and sexual assault is varied and complex. Individuals react in different ways at different times and in the same way that no two people are the same, each person who has experienced sexual violence will react in a different way. Learning about the impact of rape and sexual assault will help anyone working with or supporting a survivor to gain a better understanding about what they may be experiencing. This course helps to challenge myths surrounding expected reactions to rape and sexual assault, and to understand the processes at play that may bring about different responses and reactions, in the moment and afterwards. We will go on to consider some practical ways in which we may respond, support that is available locally and nationally, and move on to reflect on the impact on us supporting someone who has been through these experiences.Essential Information

Code: BH/22/0379 Person Centred Risk & Restrictive Practices for Lead Staff
This course is for senior staff and staff with responsibility for leading good practice. It is now in two halves and this is the second half of the training - please see special instructions below.
Working with risk and supporting service users with complex needs to live their chosen lifestyles can feel difficult. Getting the balance right in respecting individual rights whilst also fulfilling our duty of care is important. Following robust procedures can help us in getting the balance right for service users.
A restrictive practice is any practice which could be construed as potentially restricting a person’s rights of choice, self determination, privacy, freedom/freedom of movement. Under the Care Act restrictive practices may need agreement by a social worker, and at times necessitate Deprivation of Liberty applications.
This course will assist participants to demonstrate they have complied with all CQC and legal requirements, and that alternatives to restrictive practices have been appropriately considered. It will help people promote & evidence good risk assessment and restrictive practices procedures, to ensure that people are not unnecessarily restricted in our desire to manage risks.
