Code: BH/19/1131 Introduction to Apprenticeships - Bite-Size sessions (for Managers)

Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes for all ages that provide opportunities for existing staff to acquire new skills, knowledge and behaviours in their existing roles or enable new apprentices to be recruited in the council.  

The Government has implemented a number of reforms; to increase quality and quantity of apprenticeships. The reforms include new employer driven Apprenticeship Standards, Public Sector Targets and an Apprenticeship Levy.

This bite-size session will be an opportunity for managers to;

  • meet the Apprenticeship Team,
  • explore opportunities and issues,
  • ask questions and gain a better understanding of new apprenticeship landscape
  • understand your role in supporting the apprenticeship strategy
  • cover some of The Education Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) rules that the council are governed by
  • support you in your journey in recruiting an apprentice or supporting existing staff.

Code: BH/19/0467 Prescription and Over-the-Counter Medication

The abuse of, and dependence on, prescription and Over the Counter (OTC) medicines presents a growing problem both in our city and around the country.

Whether dependency has arisen over time following initial legitimate prescribing or the abuse of the medicine is intentional and non-medical to exploit its side effects, professionals might find themselves at a loss as regards to how best identify and support those affected by these issues.

This course will help you better understand the needs of prescription/OTC medicines users, and explore ways of supporting them more effectively.
