Code: BH/21/0722 Personal Safety and De-escalation Techniques for staff in Libraries - online sessions (Microsoft Teams)

This training is highly recommended for lone workers and other staff that work in a customer facing role who may deal with potential violence and aggression at work.

Lone Working is an area of work that can cause workers considerable stress and anxiety. This is particularly the case when workers have not considered the potential of the situation in a rational way. This area can also be problematic when workers do not receive appropriate support and/or sufficient training and guidance.

This training aims to provide participants with understanding of what would be considered safe working practices in this context. The course is informed by the policies and procedures of the organisation as well as material from the Suzy Lamplugh Trust, HSE, DoH, and NICE. It is set in the context of the Care Act (2014) and supports the Social Care Commitment.

The training does not cover the use of physical techniques.

Code: BH/21/0462 Presentation Skills online (Microsoft Teams) (EVENT FULL)

This virtual programme will give participants the relevant knowledge of giving presentations in the  virtual arena. It also includes several chances to practice their skills and receive constructive feedback on their performance. As most people find making presentations a nervous experience, the training will be both supportive and collaborative, building on each individual’s strengths and helping people to develop in areas where they feel less competent or confident.

The programme is a blend of interactive small group virtual sessions (using MSTeams) and individual work. It is spread over a period of a month.
