Code: BH/22/0143 Building Your Resilience (Microsoft Teams) - for Libraries Staff only

Coronavirus has changed the way almost all of us work now. It has also affected all aspects of our lives. Whether you are working from home, needing to continue your usual work in the community with social distancing safety measures, or unable to work right now, there is a need to be aware of your personal resilience.

This highly interactive session will give you the opportunity to reflect on your current resilience levels, learn some tips on looking after yourself during the COVID19 crisis, and discuss with others aspects of resilience that are particularly important in these difficult times.

Being resilient can help you bounce back in tough times, cope with additional pressures and stay healthy in times of change. Learning habits that build your resilience, ready for more turbulent times, will prevent you becoming over-whelmed by circumstances and keep you healthier in body and mind.

This short session will introduce you to a resilience model against which you will self-assess against your current state of resilience, show you how a stronger base of resilience will help you cope with changes at work and home.

Code: BH/21/0876 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 20 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.

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.

Code: BH/21/1396 Managing remote and hybrid teams

While some employees may continue working remotely, some will prefer a balance between remote and office known as hybrid working. Many organisations are now considering what ‘hybrid’ means for them, how they might meet this new employee demand.

Hybrid working is a form of flexible working that allows some employees to split their time between attending the workplace and working remotely (typically from home). We know that some roles within the council will not have the same flexibility or choice about things like working times, work location, when they can take breaks/ where they can take breaks.

This course will consider how managers can support effective hybrid working in their teams.
