Administrators Development Programme (EVENT FULL)
This is an approach to deliver support and development for administrators within B&HCC. As a result of the pandemic, we are unable to deliver the same,classroom based development; this new approach is to test an alternative style of delivery.

This course is for office managers and administrators providing support to large teams who wish to further their personal and professional development.
You will be encouraged to reflect on what you have learnt, and to draw up action plans to put it in to practice back in the workplace.
This webinar explores the concept of ‘adultification’ from both a research and practice perspective. This session uses case studies and serious case review findings to explore how adultification manifests in practice and its potentially life-long impact. Participants are introduced to Listen Up’s Professional Inter-Adultification Model which provides a framework for individuals and teams to reflect on practice and guard against the adultification of children and young people. This session is designed for teams and organisations.
BHSCP- Professional difference and challenge -
This event will be an interactive session looking at the roles of professionals and how they can challenge colleagues in safeguarding decisions, both in a professional and appropriate manner. The training will look at case studies to encourage group discussion, and provide insight into how the multi agency approach can differ from each agencies perspective. It will provide information around the escalation process that is available locally, and on how staff should follow this process if they feel that a decision needs to be considered further, thus reducing the potential risks for a child or young person and their family.

First Aid at Work (3 day) - for council employees and schools ONLY
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 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 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 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.

Infection prevention control measures and special instructions for attending this course are provided in the attached guidance document.
