Code: BH/22/0186 BHSCP-Suicide Awareness (Working with Young People) - (16yrs & over)

These training sessions are aimed at professionals in contact/working with families in East and West Sussex and Brighton and Hove who haven’t attended a Suicide awareness course in the last three years.

They are being run as a colaboration between all three Safeguarding Children Partnerships across Sussex and delivered by colleagues from Grassroots.

Course options:

Working with young people 16+ and adults : identifying, engaging and referring/sign posting individuals with suicidal thoughts and behaviours

The majority of those who die by suicide are not in contact with mental health services – they are right here in our community. Many children and young people, and their parents or carers, are either having thoughts of suicide, and an increasing number are attempting or even completing suicide.  

These basic awareness courses will equip professionals working with families to pick up on vulnerabilities, identify who might be at risk and start an open conversation about suicide, as this is one of the best way we know to prevent suicide.

We know this suicide is something that many professionals find it hard to talk about, especially with young people and their parents or carers.

Code: BH/22/0254 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.

Assessment
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.

Re-Certification
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.
