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 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/21/1655 The Empowerment Approach: Rigour without the Mortis (Foster Carers) Microsoft Teams

At the heart of the Empowerment Approach is the core principle that, to support children effectively, we must first help them to understand how their brain works and to make sense of their strengths and difficulties. By doing so, we help children and young people to move from unconscious driven behaviours to conscious control - vital steps in helping children feel empowered and motivated towards change.  

Combining neuroscience, psychology, education and coaching and informed by our understanding of attachment, trauma and neurodiversity, the trainer, Kit Messenger, will present methods which maintain high expectations of all children and young people whilst recognising the genuine needs and difficulties of some; an approach which combines rigour and clear structure, along with a spirit of support for all young people. Participants will be guided through a set of key principles and a range of practical strategies which lead to the empowerment of young people and adults alike and long term, sustainable improvements.
