Code: BH/21/1799 Emergency First Aid - Adult Social Care

This course is for Adult Social Care staff and enables first aiders to give emergency first aid to someone who is injured or becomes ill. 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 are four practical assessments that delegates will have to complete throughout the course, and these will be observed by the trainer.   During the course the trainer will also carry out on-going assessment to assess the delegates’ knowledge, skills and understanding related to the assessment criteria.  As there is an element of physical activity on this course suitable footwear and clothing should be worn. 
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/22/0066 Neurodiversity in the workplace for managers

Over the last year we have seen significant changes in the way we work, socialise, and learn. While organisations find new ways to adapt, it is important to ensure that employees continue to be supported and empowered to make a positive contribution in the workplace - that includes employees with disabilities.

With 1 in 5 people having a disability, and 1 in 7 people having a neurodiverse condition, most organisations already benefit from the skills and abilities that disabled employees bring to the workplace.

Barriers, such as widespread lack of awareness and adopting stereotypes, improper use of technology, work environments and a lack of inclusive practice in everyday activities and communication can have a moderating effect on employee engagement, and performance and subsequently affect the way staff engage with colleagues and clients.

This workshop will include case studies based on situations that may be familiar in the workplace. We aim to create a safe and open virtual environment that encourages you to engage with the course material, ask questions and work through case studies and scenarios to enhance your learning experience.
