Code: BH/22/0953 Paediatric First Aid (2 days) (EVENT FULL)

This qualification is for people who have a specific responsibility at work, or in voluntary and community activities, to prepare the learner to develop the skills and knowledge needed to provide effective first aid to children and infants.

It is mandatory for those working with children from birth to five years. It is also suitable for those working with children from birth to puberty, including foster carers, schools and CVS practitioners.

Assessment
There are seven Practical assessments, observed by the trainer throughout the course. There are two Theory assessment/multiple choice question papers. The pass mark is 11 out of 15 for Unit 1 and 18 out of 25 for Unit 2.

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

To assess competence and gain certification, the learner 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 learner 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, learners who are not able to kneel may be able to carry out the task from a standing position, and this is acceptable.

Each learner is provided with a course manual. 

Re-Certification
This qualification is valid for a period of 3 years. The learner needs to re-take the qualification before the certificate expiry date to remain qualified by attending a full two day/twelve hour Paediatric First Aid course.

The programme has been amended due to the Covid-19 outbreak and infection prevention control measures and special instructions for attending this course are detailed below in the additional information. 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.

Code: BH/22/0984 Supporting Children to Return Home from Long Term Foster Care

This webinar is aimed at Independent Reviewing Officers, Social Workers, Supervising Social Workers, Foster Carers and Pod Managers.

Some children and young people living in foster care return home to live with their parents or extended family at some point in their childhoods. Often, this will be the best plan to ensure their stability and psychological permanence in the longer-term. The contexts in which children return home can vary, sometimes it may be part of a planned move, for others it may be more reactive with young people ‘voting with their feet’ and returning.

Supporting this process involves proactive planning, meaningful assessment and ongoing support through the transition and raises many conflicting feelings and dilemmas in the process. 

This webinar will provide an opportunity to understand best practice in supporting children to return home, the process to support it and reflect on the experience of one family where children returned home after several years in foster care.

Code: BH/22/0552 Meeting the Needs of Ethnically Minoritised Children (for Foster Carers)

The 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.
