Code: BH/22/1071 Epilepsy Awareness, Seizure Management and Buccal Midazolam - Adults - Windlesham Road staff only (EVENT FULL)

This face to face course examines the classification and management of seizures in the context of adults with learning disabilities.  It also covers the role of staff in supporting people with epilepsy, the risks and the psychosocial impact on the person living with epilepsy, first aid for seizures and the administration of emergency medication buccal midazolam.

The guidelines around buccal midazolam/emergency medication administration training state that clear face to face training is best practice. 

The teaching resource will be led by an experienced trainer who is able to answer any bespoke questions around epilepsy and who can facilitate conversations around specific issues relating to the people the delegates will be supporting in their roles.

The learning gained during the session will be supported by an Epilespy Handout (workbook) which must be read by all learners prior to attending the session.  This pre-reading should take you about 30-60 minutes.  The Epilepsy Handout will be attached to the confirmation of a place email.  

At the end of the session there are 2 exercises around areas of competence. 

1. We perform a practical simulation where the process of providing seizure first aid and administering of buccal midazolam is performed by delegates in groups of 3 or 4 at a time under the supervision of the trainer (there is no need to get on the floor for this simulation). 

2.   Is an “open book” assessment meaning that learners are allowed to refer to the Epilepsy Handout (workbook) during a paper based theory test assessment. This will be completed whilst the delegates are not performing in their simulation. 

For successful completion of this course and to be awarded a certificate of completion delegates must take part and pass the practical simulation and theory test according to the trainers assessment.  Delegates can re-do the theory test 3 times before needing to re-attend the course and any specific learning support can be arranged and worked with as required to ensure all people have a fair and objective assessment of their ability. 

Once the delegates have passed and the register has been marked certificates will be issued.


The latest Government Guidance is being followed to ensure that face to face training is delivered in the safest possible way to reduce the risk of catching and spreading COVID-19 . The attached COVID-19 Risk Assessment Guidance for Training Participants sets out the arrangements and what you are required to do when attending the training course. Please ensure these are read and understood before applying and attending the course.

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.

Certification

On passing the course, the delegate will be issued with a First Aid at Work certificate valid for a period of 3 years.


Re-Certification

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.
