Code: BH/21/0498 Assessing Staff Competence to Administer Medication (Adult social care) 2 days (Zoom) (EVENT FULL)

This course is aimed at managers and seniors that look at the process by which medicines are managed.

This practical workshop provides the knowledge, materials and skills to care providers to create and manage a formal system to assess staff competence.

Care Quality Commission (CQC) requires care providers to have a formal system to assess staff competence to administer medication. In this workshop we will assess your competence to administer medicines against a structured competence assessment checklist.

We will then assess you as competent to assess others (against this same checklist). You will be assessed through a combination of 1:1 direct observation with actual medicines, simulated medicines rounds, video assessments and a theory assessment.

Please note: you must complete and pass the pre-course elearning modules, two virtual sessions and summative assessment before being awarded the certificate of completion.

Code: BH/21/0750 First Aid at Work (3 day) - for council employees and schools ONLY (EVENT FULL)

Who is this course for?

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.

This 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 trainng 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.

Certification

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


Re-Certification

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

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.

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-certification 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.

This course offers an introduction to the main principles, orders and legal processes that relate to children including the Children Act 1989 and the Adoption and Children Act 2002. Communicating effectively within this context is also crucial and this course provides an opportunity to practice oral evidence giving in a safe and supportive environment.
