Code: BH/21/1390 Hoarding Case Management Workshop (EVENT FULL)

  This course is for housing staff and social workers who work for Brighton and Hove City Council and other practitioners who manage cases of Hoarding &/or Self Neglect. Whilst it is not mandatory for the learner to have completed the Hoarding Awareness &/or Self Neglect Course, the learner is expected to have good knowledge of this very complex condition. 
The course will be delivered online via Zoom and will be interactive, offering the learner the opportunity to share their experiences of working in a multi-agency setting whilst learning what is required to manage a hoarding case.  Collaboration and sharing resources will be just some of the creative thinking on the day.

 Each case is unique and the support that can be provided will be tailored to the challenges of an individual situation. You will learn more about this, along with the complexities of hoarding & self-neglect throughout the course. The focus is very much on a Supportive Intervention, how to adopt a strength-based approach, harness strengths and weaknesses within a multi-agency setting whilst mitigating the risks of enforced action and/or homelessness.
Delegates will be encouraged to contribute throughout the day in a fun and relaxed way, sharing knowledge and experience, what challenges they face and what steps they might take to overcome any barriers with creative problem solving.  The trainer will contribute with his or her own experience and will share best practice from around the country & overseas.

Code: BH/21/0877 Paediatric First Aid (2 days)

This qualification is for people who have a specific responsibility at work, or in voluntary and community activities, to prepare the learner to develop the skills and knowledge needed to provide effective first aid to children and infants.

It is mandatory for those working with children from birth to five years. It is also suitable for those working with children from birth to puberty, including foster carers, schools and CVS practitioners.

There are seven Practical assessments, observed by the trainer throughout the course. There are two Theory assessment/multiple choice question papers. The pass mark is 11 out of 15 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 qualification. 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.

This qualification is valid for a period of 3 years. The learner needs to re-take the qualification before the certificate expiry date to remain qualified by attending a full two day/twelve hour Paediatric First Aid course.

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.
