Code: BH/21/0486 BHSCP - Enabling & Supporting Compliance: Working with Disguised Compliance and Forceful Counter Argument in Safeguarding

Disguised compliance involves parents giving the appearance of co-operating with child welfare agencies to avoid raising suspicions and allay concerns.

Published case reviews highlight that professionals sometimes delay or avoid interventions due to parental disguised compliance. It is hard for professionals to work with families where there may be lack of cooperation and/or a hostile attitude.

When there are child welfare/protection issues, a failure to engage with the family may have serious implications and non-intervention is not an option.

This course has been produced to support professionals working with these problematic dynamics.

This training is provided by Brighton & Hove Safeguarding Children Partnership (BHSCP)

THIS TRAINING IS NOW SPLIT INTO 2 SESSIONS - you need to book both

Code: BH/21/0708 Emergency First Aid - Adult Social Care (EVENT FULL)

This course is for Adult Social Care staff and enables first aiders to give emergency first aid to someone who is injured or becomes ill. The objective of the qualification is to benefit delegates by enabling them to attain the knowledge and practical competencies needed to deal with a range of first aid situations and/or take on the role of first aider in the workplace.

This qualification 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 programme has been amended due to the Covid-19 outbreak and infection prevention control measures and special instructions for attending this course are attached.  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.

Please note: - this course is open to adult social care staff across the council and across the Independent Voluntary Sector. 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 may be a mix of staff from different workplaces.

There are four practical assessments that delegates will have to complete throughout the course, and these will be observed by the trainer.   During the course the trainer will also carry out on-going assessment to assess the delegates’ knowledge, skills and understanding related to the assessment criteria.  As there is an element of physical activity on this course suitable footwear and clothing should be worn. 
There is also a theory assessment/multiple choice paper at the end of the course 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 not able to kneel may be able to carry out the task from a standing position, and this is acceptable.

This qualification is valid for a period of 3 years, and will be issued to those who have met the required standard.. The learner needs to re-take the qualification before the certificate expiry date to remain qualified by attending a full one day/six hour Emergency First Aid at Work course.

Delegates will be provided with a course manual to keep.
