Code: BH/22/0709 Administrators Development Programme (EVENT FULL)

This is an approach to deliver support and development for administrators within B&HCC.  As a result of the pandemic, we are unable to deliver the same, classroom based development; this approach is to provide an alternative style of delivery which still supports you as an adminstrator.

This learning will be delivered in 2 remote (Zoom) sessions, lasting 3 hours, on sequential weeks.  You must be able to able both sessions.

This course is for office managers and administrators providing support to large teams who wish to further their personal and professional development.

You will be encouraged to reflect on what you have learnt, and to draw up action plans to put it in to practice back in the workplace.

Code: BH/22/0339 An Introduction to Induction, Supervision and Performance Development Plans / Appraisals for Supervisors (EVENT FULL)

This course is for managers / supervisors who want to learn more about inducting new staff effectively. It is also for those who are currently supervising or new to supervising and would like to know more about how supervision works in practice.  It is an opportunity to increase your knowledge, skills and competence in delivering effective induction and supervision.

As the Care Certificate was introduced 7 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 new staff, whether they are new to adult social care or have adult social care experience and / or a social care qualification. 

This course is delivered across two virtual teams sessions.  

Please note: - This course is for in-house providers and the independent voluntary sector only.

Code: BH/22/0253 Paediatric First Aid (2 days) (EVENT FULL)

This qualification is for people who have a specific responsibility at work, or in voluntary and community activities, to prepare the learner to develop the skills and knowledge needed to provide effective first aid to children and infants.

It is mandatory for those working with children from birth to five years. It is also suitable for those working with children from birth to puberty, including foster carers, schools and CVS practitioners.

Assessment
There are seven Practical assessments, observed by the trainer throughout the course. There are two Theory assessment/multiple choice question papers. The pass mark is 11 out of 15 for Unit 1 and 18 out of 25 for Unit 2.

In addition, the trainer will carry out on-going assessment to assess the learners’ knowledge, skills and understanding related to the assessment criteria.

To assess competence and gain certification, the learner 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 learner 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, learners who are not able to kneel may be able to carry out the task from a standing position, and this is acceptable.

Each learner is provided with a course manual.
 
Re-Certification
This qualification is valid for a period of 3 years. The learner needs to re-take the qualification before the certificate expiry date to remain qualified by attending a full two day/twelve hour Paediatric First Aid course.

The programme has been amended due to the Covid-19 outbreak and infection prevention control measures and special instructions for attending this course are detailed below in the additional information. 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.

Code: BH/22/0181 Preparing to say goodbye: guided conversations about the end of life

This course provides an opportunity to think about the subject of death and dying.
It focusses on how we can help those we are supporting to talk about this difficult and sensitive subject when they need to.

Conversations about death and dying may not have taken place with family or loved ones for a variety of reasons, and we may find ourselves in the position of needing to respond to a persons' need to discuss their own death but not being sure how to.
These conversations may be planned, or happen in an unprompted way. They may happen once only or over a series of different occasions.   

 This course introduces a 'Guided conversation tool kit' which can help us to navigate this difficult and sensitive topic with the person we are supporting. It aims to increase awareness of situations in which a person may indicate they need to discuss their own mortality, the factors that can impact on how they approach their own death, and provide greater understanding, skills and confidence in knowing how to respond.
