Code: BH/22/0374 BHSCP - Preventing the Exploitation of Children and Young People (Day1)

Ensuring that children and young people in Brighton & Hove are protected effectively from sexual harm and violent exploitation is a priority for Brighton & Hove Safeguarding Partnership.

Day One of our two training courses on exploitation looks at different ways that children & young people may be exploited by those who have power over them by virtue of their age, gender, intellect, physical strength and/or economic or other resources. Violence, coercion and intimidation commonly occur in exploitation, and these situations are often characterised by the child or young person’s limited availability of choice resulting from their social/economic and/or emotional vulnerability

This course is facilitated by The Wise Project, and there will be a strong focus on Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE), how to identify this abuse, and disrupt the exploitation. You will also look at the emerging threat of Child Criminal Exploitation (CCE) and County Lines activity, as well as considering what may make a young person vulnerable to exploitation into radicalisation. These  different forms of exploitation can be linked, and you will be encouraged to think about the wider experiences of the child, including the nuances behind a vulnerable children being both potential  perpetrators of crimes and victims of exploitation.

This training is provided by the Brighton & Hove Safeguarding Children Partnership (BHSCP).

Code: BH/22/0294 First Aid at Work 2 Day Recertification (very important: please see eligibility information within course details before requesting a place)

Who is this course for?

This 2 day recertification course is specifically for qualified First Aiders who hold a current First Aid at Work certificate nearing expiry and need to renew their qualification for a further 3 years. 

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 and have previously attended the 3 day First Aid at Work course.

You can only attend this course if -

  • you are a council employee or work in Brighton and Hove City Schools and are required to be a lead First Aider at work
  • you have previously attended the 3 day First Aid at Work course and your current certificate is due to expire in the next 6 months
Please note: If your certificate has already expired you will need to attend the full 3 day First Aid at Work course.

The First Aid at Work is training 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 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 training 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.


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


Delegates willl need to retake the qualification before their certificate expiry date to remain qualified by attending another two day First Aid at Work Re-Certification course.

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-certifcation 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.

Please note: 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 will be a mix of staff from different workplaces.

Code: BH/22/0942 Introduction to Making Every Contact Count (MECC)

Making Every Contact Count (MECC) is a national Public Health initiative encouraging and helping people to make healthier choices to achieve positive long-term behaviour change by providing ‘Very Brief Interventions’.

Very Brief Interventions are pro-actively introducing the idea of lifestyle change and motivating individuals to start making changes to their lifestyle behaviour(s). They are usually given opportunistically and are a short intervention (usually from 30 seconds to 3 minutes).

MECC is intended for anyone who has contact with people to “Make Every Contact Count” and develop their public health knowledge; It develops confidence to deliver health and wellbeing messages which encourage people to change their behaviour and to direct them to local services that can support them.

Through the e-learning modules and participatory online session, we shall introduce the concept behind it and offer the tools and resources to deliver it, including resources and the key messages behind the Public Health campaign ‘One You’.

Code: BH/22/1117 Safeguarding Children with Disabilities (for Drove Road & Tudor House staff only)

We know that disabled children are at an increased risk of being abused compared with their non-disabled peers. They are also less likely to receive the protection and support they need when they have been abused.

Their additional needs must be met to allow them to be properly safeguarded.

This course will increase your knowledge and awareness of those needs. There is a focus on how safeguarding practice can be put into place, thus reducing the potential risks.
