Emotion Coaching has been found to help children and young people better understand their emotions, as well as regulate, improve and take ownership of their behaviour. Emotion Coached children and young people:
· Achieve more academically in school · Are more popular · Have fewer behavioural problems · Have fewer infectious illnesses · Are more emotionally stable · Are more resilient
Emotion Coaching can also help practitioners to be more sensitive to the needs of children and young people, create more consistent responses to behaviour, feel more ‘in control’ during incidents, and promote positive relationships between adults and children.
Delegates will be encouraged between Day 1 and 2 to reflect on their learning and experiences. This will involve keeping a reflective diary to consider how you have used Emotion Coaching ‘in the moment’, what went well and what you have learnt through ‘getting it wrong’, which is an important part of the learning process and EC journey.
Between days 1 and 2, you will also need to watch the half hour video here
At the end of the 2 day course, you will consider how you can further embed Emotion Coaching into your work and personal lives and consider how to “adopt” and “adapt” into your professional practice. “you need to practise to improve practice” (Gilbert, 2018)
Please note, this is now a 2 day course. No need to redo if already done the 1 day course.
Mindfulness for Social Work - 6 week introductory programme (Microsoft Teams)
This accessible 6-week programme provides an introduction to Mindfulness for Social Work and will enable you to try out daily mindfulness practice as a 6-week experiment; understand how practicing mindfulness may support both wellbeing and relationship based practice, and develop a greater understanding of local and national mindfulness resources. Note: this course does not teach skills in teaching mindfulness to children or adults.
The course consists of live, 75 minute, weekly teaching sessions using MS Teams, plus self-guided learning with video lessons, mindfulness practice downloads and teaching materials via a dedicated course website. NEW: Video lessons include materials from Annie Bertram, a trainer and parent with lived experience of safeguarding processes. There are two brief reflective assignments with feedback.
Live dates are: Wednesday 26 May, 2 June, 9 June, 16 June, 23 June & 30 June 2021.
Daily home mindfulness practice is a core part of the course and you will be asked to schedule in 2 x 10 minute daily guided mindfulness practices (at a time that suits you) for the duration of the 6 week programme.
There are two short reflective assignments within the course but this is primarily an experiential programme which will enable you to explore for yourself whether practicing mindfulness is something you would like to pursue beyond this introductory programme.
This virtual programme will give participants the relevant knowledge of giving presentations in the virtual arena. It also includes several chances to practice their skills and receive constructive feedback on their performance. As most people find making presentations a nervous experience, the training will be both supportive and collaborative, building on each individual’s strengths and helping people to develop in areas where they feel less competent or confident.
The programme is a blend of interactive small group virtual sessions (using MSTeams) and individual work. It is spread over a period of a month.

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 trainng 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.
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.
