Code: BH/19/1149 Adults CPD - Practice Education Stage 1

To apply for this module please register your Expression of Interest before the 24th June 2019.

Practice Education learning is based on the Practice Educator Professional Standards (PEPS) which are an ‘employer endorsed’ set of standards meaning employers can endorse whether professionals have met the standards.

Social work professionals who Practice Supervise a social work student on placement need to complete the relevant Practice Education learning, in this case: Practice Supervisors – Practice Education Stage 1.

What’s changing?

From 2019/20 Practice Education Stage 1 will no longer be taught through the Universities and will instead be an employer endorsed in-house programme.

This will be a five day programme of workshops and reflective group supervision led by our Practice Education Consultants (PECs). 

The programme will run between September 2019 and April 2020 (dates TBC shortly).

The new in-house Practice Education Stage 1 programme will not be accredited and so will no longer carry PG level credits or count towards post-graduate awards at the Universities.

The workshops are for practitioners with minimal experience of teaching and assessing others who wish to develop their skills. 

You will be a Practice Supervisor assigned to a social work student while undertaking the course.
You will not have full responsibility for the assessment of the student as you will work alongside a Stage 2 qualified Practice Educator. 
The module has been designed to meet Practice Educator Professional Standards(PEPS) for Social Work.
You will learn via a range of teaching methods including workshops and group discussion. 

You must also be in a position where you can be observed fulfilling practice assessments and teaching on at least one separate occasion by an experienced Practice Educator.

Code: BH/20/0212 Councillor Briefing - Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

The Council are proposing to implement the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) on planning permissions granted on and from 1st June 2020, subject to full council approval which we are hoping to acquire in April. CIL is a non-negotiable financial levy that will be placed on certain types of development to support the provision of infrastructure across the City.

This initial workshop aims to inform members of what CIL is, what it will be levied on and how it will work with the existing arrangements of S106 legal agreements. It is designed for all members who may be involved in the planning process such as the planning and the TECC committee but it is being opened up to all Councillors as this may be of interest to both you and your constituents. 

The workshop will focus on the administration and implementation of the CIL and not the governance arrangements of how it will be spent, these will be brought to members at a later stage.

The workshop will be run by Isabel Elder, CIL Implementation Manager.

Code: BH/19/0998 Hoarding Awareness Workshop

Most hoarded properties are ‘cleared out’ by cleaning teams. This leads to greater distress and more intense hoarding activity. Clients with hoarding disorder need understanding and empathy in order to help them to develop new behaviours to cope with their excess belongings. This course gives an overview of the condition and draws on the experiences of the practitioner/trainer in developing skills to work with people who hoard.   

This course is aimed at housing staff and social workers, and takes into consideration the knowledge and skills statement for social workers.

Code: BH/20/0111 Touch Typing - How to save time, reduce frustration, minimise error and boost productivity (EVENT FULL)

How much time do you spend at a keyboard every day? And how is typing for you? Tiring? Frustrating? Error-prone? Uncomfortable, even damaging? Perhaps slow? Or at least not fast enough? It’ll be because you’ve ‘taught yourself’ and aren’t using the best technique.

Forget everything you think you know about learning to touch type! Not “lesson after lesson after lesson…”; not slogging away at mindless drills; not struggling to memorise the keyboard; not ‘unlearning’ old habits; and not months of striving before the benefits kick in.

This unexpected, innovative and engaging programme trains your brain and body so that, unbelievably, you can start touch typing at close to 100% accuracy after just 1.5 days of initial training. You’ll be able to sit upright; relaxed & calm; without looking down at all; and with all your fingers on the keyboard, and your mind on your what you’re typing, not how you’re doing it.
