Code: BH/21/0757 Emergency First Aid - Adult Social Care

This course is for Adult Social Care staff and enables first aiders to give emergency first aid to someone who is injured or becomes ill. The objective of the qualification is to benefit delegates by enabling them to attain 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.

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.

The programme has been amended due to the Covid-19 outbreak and infection prevention control measures and special instructions for attending this course are attached.  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.

Please note: - this course is open to adult social care staff across the council and across the Independent Voluntary Sector. 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 may be a mix of staff from different workplaces.

There are four practical assessments that delegates will have to complete throughout the course, and these will be observed by the trainer.   During the course the trainer will also carry out on-going assessment to assess the delegates’ knowledge, skills and understanding related to the assessment criteria.  As there is an element of physical activity on this course suitable footwear and clothing should be worn. 
There is also a theory assessment/multiple choice paper at the end of the course 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 not able to kneel may be able to carry out the task from a standing position, and this is acceptable.

This qualification is valid for a period of 3 years, and will be issued to those who have met the required standard.. The learner needs to re-take the qualification before the certificate expiry date to remain qualified by attending a full one day/six hour Emergency First Aid at Work course.

Delegates will be provided with a course manual to keep.

Code: BH/21/0723 Personal Safety and De-escalation Techniques for staff in Libraries - online sessions (Microsoft Teams) (EVENT FULL)

This training is highly recommended for lone workers and other staff that work in a customer facing role who may deal with potential violence and aggression at work.

Lone Working is an area of work that can cause workers considerable stress and anxiety. This is particularly the case when workers have not considered the potential of the situation in a rational way. This area can also be problematic when workers do not receive appropriate support and/or sufficient training and guidance.

This training aims to provide participants with understanding of what would be considered safe working practices in this context. The course is informed by the policies and procedures of the organisation as well as material from the Suzy Lamplugh Trust, HSE, DoH, and NICE. It is set in the context of the Care Act (2014) and supports the Social Care Commitment.

The training does not cover the use of physical techniques.

Code: BH/21/0462 Presentation Skills online (Microsoft Teams)

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.
