Code: BH/22/0264 First Aid at Work 2 Day Recertification (very important: please see eligibility information within course details before requesting a place)

Who is this course for?

This 2 day recertification course is specifically for qualified First Aiders who hold a current First Aid at Work certificate nearing expiry and need to renew their qualification for a further 3 years. 

When attending a two day Re-Certification course, delegates must be aware that the syllabus is covered at a significantly faster pace, in the understanding that learners are familiar with the topics and have previously attended the 3 day First Aid at Work course.

You can only attend this course if -

  • you are a council employee or work in Brighton and Hove City Schools and are required to be a lead First Aider at work
  • you have previously attended the 3 day First Aid at Work course and your current certificate is due to expire in the next 6 months
Please note: If your certificate has already expired you will need to attend the full 3 day First Aid at Work course.

The First Aid at Work is training 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 course is for those that will be acting as lead First Aiders in their workplace and will provide delegates with a recognised First Aid at Work qualification. Upon completion of the course, First Aiders will be able to take control and provide assistance in an emergency situation at their workplace. They will be able to respond to an accident or illness promptly, effectively and safely.

What does the training cover?
 
Topics covered include: resuscitation and CPR, dealing with wounds, bleeding, burns, scalds, heart conditions and minor injuries.

How are delegates assessed?

There are six practical assessments, observed by the trainer throughout the course and two theory assessment/multiple choice question papers. 

In addition, the trainer will carry out on-going assessment to assess the delegates knowledge, skills and understanding related to the assessment criteria.

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 unable to kneel, may be able to carry out the task from a standing position, and this is acceptable.

Certification

On passing the recertification course, the delegate will be issued with a First Aid at Work certificate valid for a period of 3 years.


Re-Certification

Delegates willl need to retake the qualification before their certificate expiry date to remain qualified by attending another two day First Aid at Work Re-Certification course.

If an employee’s certificate expires, they are no longer considered competent to act as a First Aider in the workplace. It is the responsibility of the delegate to ensure they book on to a Re-certifcation course before their certificate expires.

IMPORTANT - the first aid training programme has been amended due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Infection prevention control measures and special instructions for attending this course are provided in the attached guidance document. Please ensure that this is read and understood before applying and attending this course. Delegates can also request a copy of the risk assessments that cover this training course.

Please note: 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 will be a mix of staff from different workplaces.

Code: BH/22/0183 Preparing to say goodbye: guided conversations about the end of life (EVENT FULL)

This course provides an opportunity to think about the subject of death and dying.
It focusses on how we can help those we are supporting to talk about this difficult and sensitive subject when they need to.

Conversations about death and dying may not have taken place with family or loved ones for a variety of reasons, and we may find ourselves in the position of needing to respond to a persons' need to discuss their own death but not being sure how to.
These conversations may be planned, or happen in an unprompted way. They may happen once only or over a series of different occasions.   

 This course introduces a 'Guided conversation tool kit' which can help us to navigate this difficult and sensitive topic with the person we are supporting. It aims to increase awareness of situations in which a person may indicate they need to discuss their own mortality, the factors that can impact on how they approach their own death, and provide greater understanding, skills and confidence in knowing how to respond.

Code: BH/22/0786 Q&A Sessions for Managers on Managing Hybrid Working in teams - online

As we establish hybrid working arrangements across the council, HR will be holding Q&A sessions for managers who manage hybrid teams. Hybrid working enables us to place flexibility, wellbeing and inclusion at the heart of how we work. This requires managers to balance individual working preferences with team cohesion whilst prioritising customer needs. How we apply current legislation, guidance and policy is part of this.   

The above session will offer an overview of how to apply our hybrid working guidance, alongside legal and policy implications. We will provide managers with the opportunity to ask questions, share experiences  and hear advice from HR colleagues, and members of our Future Ways of Working programme.

The sessions are available to anyone who is in a line management role regardless of seniority.

If you can submit your question in advance to FutureWaysofWorking@brighton-hove.gov.uk, this would help us plan the sessions and identify common themes. Confidentiality will be maintained. Alternatively, you can bring your question with you to the session.

There are no limits to the number of places available, and encourage you to attend.
