Code: BH/21/0918 Anti racism and white privilege (families, children and learning staff only) (EVENT FULL)

Brighton & Hove City Council has made a commitment to becoming an anti-racist council.

As a predominantly white council we must recognise what we don’t know, what we don’t experience and see. We need to openly discuss the language we use and understand what different words mean to different people.

To support this, we want to educate staff on white privilege, language and structural racism, As a starting point, we are offering this training for staff.

This anti-racism session has been designed to:

  • support staff to strengthen their understanding of race equality and develop the knowledge and skills to identify and address racism in their workplace
  • Introduce participants to the main concepts of race equality, such as privilege and structural racism within a safe, open and reflective space


The course will be delivered by Brenda Lewis, from training company Ceruleanblu. 

Brenda is a qualified and experienced organisational and learning development specialist, working with particular focus on leadership, equality and inclusion, organisational development, management skills, and personal development.

Code: BH/21/1018 Compassionate Leadership

This opportunity is open to any member of staff who has supervisory responsibility, and is interested in developing their compassionate leadership skills.

Find out how you can adapt your leadership style to help those around you flourish during times of uncertainty. As some staff start to return to the office and others continue to work from home we are all going through another phase of adjustment. If you have supervisory responsibilities, or you work with staff across the organisation, you can support people’s workplace wellbeing by developing your compassionate leadership skills.

The sessions will give you valuable time away from emails and day to day work, for an opportunity to think and reflect. It is a group coaching experience, rather than a training course. There will be a short activity to complete before the training and an expectation to try out something different between sessions.  

The session is led by qualified coach, Sam Beal, member of our BHCC Coaching Pool

Code: BH/21/0673 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.
