Code: BH/20/1440 An Introduction to Induction, Supervision and Performance Development Plans / Appraisals for Supervisors

This virtual course is for managers/supervisors in adult social care services that are required to induct new staff and for managers / supervisors to have an opportunity to increase their knowledge, skills and competence in delivering effective induction and supervision.

As the Care Certificate was introduced 5 years ago and is now embedded in Adult Social Care it will no longer be covered in the induction part of this course. Instead, general induction will be covered. 

For those of you who do the Care Certificate as part of your workplace induction, there are a number of documents attached that will provide support for you in inducting staff, whether they are new to adult social care or have adult social care experience and / or a social care qualification. 

Please note: there are two virtual sessions for this course.

Code: BH/20/1257 Supporting LGBTU Children and Young People

This course will explore the issues and challenges that Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans or Unsure (of their sexual orientation or gender identity) children young people face, how they are impacted by these, and how best to support them. We will learn ways to make our services safer by exploring ways of identifying and challenging homophobia, bi and transphobia at home, school, college or work.

Although trans / gender identity issues will be touched upon, the emphasis of this course is much more on sexual orientation, due to the fact we run a separate course on gender identity and trans issues
