Code: BH/21/1515 BHSCP - Pan Sussex Safeguarding Children Conference ( Safeguarding the Under 5's) (EVENT FULL)

This event is run in colaboration with East Sussex and West Sussex Safeguarding Children Partnership's.

This virtual event will consist of keynote speakers, relating theory to local multi-agency practice and will also provide the opportunity for practitioners to ask questions and share opinions with a range of organisations.

There will be a full day of information provided by external speakers.
These will include:

Out of Routine - report into 
The National Review Panel - 3rd review looking at  -  Infant Mortality
The Impact of Parental Interaction with Infants and the links to infant mental health.
Local initiatives and national findings are also looked at as part of this day, to consider how they impact on current and future practice.

This focus of safeguarding the under fives is relevant across the county of Sussex, it is a vital part of the work that all safeguarding partners undertake, and we need to be considering what initiatives could be used to reduce risk and harm to this particlar cohort of children.

There is also the need to consider our professional interaction with parents and carers and how in particular we engage with male carers, who often get overlooked as part of the safeguarding process.

Code: BH/21/0956 First Aid at Work 2 Day Recertification (very important: please see eligibility information within course details before requesting a place)

Who is this course for?

This 2 day recertification course is specifically for qualified First Aiders who hold a current First Aid at Work certificate nearing expiry and need to renew their qualification for a further 3 years. 

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 and have previously attended the 3 day First Aid at Work course.

You can only attend this course if -

  • you are a council employee or work in Brighton and Hove City Schools and are required to be a lead First Aider at work
  • you have previously attended the 3 day First Aid at Work course and your current certificate is due to expire in the next 6 months
Please note: If your certificate has already expired you will need to attend the full 3 day First Aid at Work course.

The First Aid at Work is training 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.

The 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 recertification 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 another two day First Aid at Work Re-Certification course.

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-certifcation course before their certificate expires.

IMPORTANT - the first aid training programme has been amended due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Infection prevention control measures and special instructions for attending this course are provided in the attached guidance document. Please ensure that this is read and understood before applying and attending this course. Delegates can also request a copy of the risk assessments that cover this training course.

Please note: Whilst the course is delivered in a covid secure way, please consider with your manager whether it is essential for you to attend as the delegates will be a mix of staff from different workplaces.

Code: BH/21/1417 Managing and Learning from Medication Errors (Adult Social Care) (Zoom)

This course is aimed at managers and seniors that look at the process by which medicines are managed.

If you’re trying to reduce medication errors stop right now, you’re thinking about this the wrong way around. You want to reduce the harm that medication errors (or more correctly medication incidents) cause, and the only way you’ll do this is by learning from these incidents. With success, you’ll see your reported incidents go up, giving you more opportunities to learn. But the harm they cause should go down.

This course will teach you how manage, report and learn from medication incidents. It will enable you to provide the correct response to Safeguarding Teams and Care Quality Commission (CQC). It will enable you to reduce the chance of harm from medication incidents occurring by learning from them.

We can study actual medicines incidents that have occurred in your organisation in the case studies (if you are able to send suitable examples to us prior to the course).

In addition to the handout, you will be sent an electronic copy of our medicines incident form and investigation protocols.
