Meeting the Needs of BAME Children
This workshop session will cover issues of race, identity, marginalization and discrimination. We will consider associated terminology, discuss strategies to challenge racism and explore the implications of potentially damaging attitudes, language and behaviours.
We will watch a film which offers a young person's perspective and use this to consider how we can support BAME young people in developing a positive sense of identity. Case studies (which you will have a chance to look at before the session) will be used to bring together our deliberations. They will help in focussing our strategies of how we can work collectively towards better meeting the needs of BAME children.
Self esteem, older people and wellbeing (EVENT FULL)
This course will be useful for anyone working with older people and anyone with an interest in enhancing their understanding of self esteem and wellbeing. The course explores the concept of self esteem and draws on thinking in psychology to look in depth at what self esteem might consist of.
It goes on to explore the impact of ageing on self esteem and things that are important to consider when working with older people.
The course also draws on participative research with older people into what contributes to or detracts from wellbeing, and focusses on how relationships and good practice can make a big contribution to enhancing self esteem and wellbeing in later life.

Emergency First Aid at Work - for council employees and schools ONLY
Who is this course for?
This training is for those people employed by Brighton and Hove City Council or Brighton and Hove Schools who have a specific responsibility at work, to provide basic first aid to people in a range of first aid situations.
If however, you are taking a lead in first aid in your workplace, the three day First Aid at Work course may be more appropriate for you.
Please note: there are specific courses for staff who that work in Adult Social Care or Children Services.
What is the purpose of this course?
The course aims to enable delegates 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.
How are delegates assessed?
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 day Emergency First Aid at Work course.
IMPORTANT: The First Aid Training Programme has been amended due to the Covid-19 outbreak and infection prevention control measures and special instructions for attending this course are attached.
