Code: BH/21/0592 Combined First Aid at Work & Paediatric First Aid Level 3 Award (3 days)

Combining the QA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work & Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid into three days, this course provides learners with the knowledge and practical competencies needed to deal with a range of first aid situations and/or take on the role of First Aider in the workplace and when looking after children.

The course covers both the First Aid at Work and Paediatric First Aid syllabuses and 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 and to provide first aid to infants and children.

On passing the course, the learner will be issued with a First Aid at Work certificate and a Paediatric First Aid certificate, valid for 3 years.

There are nine Practical assessments, observed by the trainer throughout the course.

There are two theory assessment/multiple choice question papers.  The pass mark is 14 out of 40 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 qualified.  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.

Code: BH/21/0483 Person Centred Risk & Restrictive Practices for Lead Staff (EVENT FULL)

This course is for senior staff and staff with responsibility for leading good practice. It is now in two halves and this is the second half of the training -  please see special instructions below.

Working with risk and supporting service users with complex needs to live their chosen lifestyles can feel difficult. Getting the balance right in respecting individual rights whilst also fulfilling our duty of care is important. Following robust procedures can help us in getting the balance right for service users.

A restrictive practice is any practice which could be construed as potentially restricting a person’s rights of choice, self determination, privacy, freedom/freedom of movement. Under the Care Act restrictive practices may need agreement by a social worker, and at times necessitate Deprivation of Liberty applications.

This course will assist participants to demonstrate they have complied with all CQC and legal requirements, and that alternatives to restrictive practices have been appropriately considered. It will help people promote & evidence good risk assessment and restrictive practices procedures, to ensure that people are not unnecessarily restricted in our desire to manage risks.

Code: BH/21/0766 Covid - the impact on social work (webinar)

This webinar will be delivered by Harry Ferguson, Professor of Social Work at the University of Birmingham.

Harry is a qualified social worker, he has been an academic for 30 years and is an internationally recognized leader in social work research and scholarship. He has conducted many empirical research projects into child protection and child welfare practices, and has particular expertise using qualitative research methods. Over the past decade he has used ethnographic methods of participant observation to get close to practice to find out what social workers actually do, how they interact with service users, the kinds of support they get (or don’t get) in their organisations and what it means to be helpful in social work. He has a particular interest in evoking the lived experience of practice and the ways it feels.  

His books include Child Protection Practice (Palgrave Macmillan).

Over the past year he has been researching the impact of COVID-19 on social work and child protection and that will be the focus of this webinar.
