Code: BH/21/1516 An Introduction to Induction, Supervision and Performance Development Plans / Appraisals for Supervisors

This virtual course is for managers/supervisors in adult social care services that are required to induct new staff and for managers / supervisors to have an opportunity to increase their knowledge, skills and competence in delivering effective induction and supervision.

As the Care Certificate was introduced 5 years ago and is now embedded in Adult Social Care it will no longer be covered in the induction part of this course. Instead, general induction will be covered. 

For those of you who do the Care Certificate as part of your workplace induction, there are a number of documents attached that will provide support for you in inducting staff, whether they are new to adult social care or have adult social care experience and / or a social care qualification. 

This course is run over two virtual sessions.  



Please note: - This course is for in-house providers and the independent voluntary sector only.
If you are a Social Worker there is a separate course for supervision.

Code: BH/21/1553 The Body Speaks: Communication Skills Online

This is a highly interactive workshop designed to help people to build rapport and increase their influence when communicating online.


Why body language?

The human body is a highly sensitive social communication system. On a subtle, sub-verbal level, trust is gained or lost by how we move, breathe and sound. Our behaviour is physical. It can be used for building positive, engaged relationships over a short space of time. Our reliance on this bio-feedback of physical and vocal behaviour has enabled us to collaborate and create a sense of community over thousands of years. When we relate to others, the body ‘speaks’…!


Why voice?
 
How we sound reveals what we feel about a particular topic. This is passed on to our listeners. We can enliven others, inspire them or switch them off with the tone of our voice. As we communication more online there is less ‘live’ behaviour available to get to know someone and build trust. We rely more on the pitch and tone of their voice to build a profile of them socially and generate rapport. What was previously just one part of a bigger behavioural ‘system’ is now a primary indicator of confidence and warmth. We are how we sound…!


Why do this workshop?

We are becoming increasingly disengaged from physical/social stimuli as we remain more stationary and in a domestic environment. This leads to unprecedented amounts of social disconnect. Even when we leave the house, we have been covering up our faces in the company of others. Communication with clients, customers and colleagues is often reduced exclusively to a screen. The nervous system will only activate what is being used and closes other systems down. This includes our embodied and vocal responses needed for optimised face-to-face social engagement.
