Code: BH/22/0710 Administrators Development Programme

This is an approach to deliver support and development for administrators within B&HCC.  As a result of the pandemic, we are unable to deliver the same, classroom based development; this approach is to provide an alternative style of delivery which still supports you as an administrator.

This learning will be delivered in 2 remote (Zoom) sessions, lasting 3 hours, on sequential weeks.  You must be able to able both sessions.

This course is for office managers and administrators providing support to large teams who wish to further their personal and professional development.

You will be encouraged to reflect on what you have learnt, and to draw up action plans to put it in to practice back in the workplace.

Code: BH/22/0651 Overcoming Overwhelm online - 2 sessions (Zoom) EVENT FULL (EVENT FULL)



Overwhelm – a personal plan


What is overwhelm and what causes it?

Being overwhelmed occurs when there is too much of something going on – we feel
like we’re drowning or being buried.

This can happen for a number of reasons, but a feeling of too many things to do, too
much work, too much work pressure and too many deadlines can be a major
contributor.

Feeling overwhelmed has repercussions on the whole of our life. It can make us feel
tired, interfere with our sleep and make it difficult for us to think rationally. These
negative emotions can make it more difficult for your body to fight off infections and
can have a physical effect with fatigue, neck and upper-back pain, for example.
Add all this together and it can affect every area of life, impacting our social lives and
relationships on top of the work challenges.

All these feelings distract us from being effective and efficient and that, in turn, leads
to lowered ‘performance’ and sets up a vicious cycle dragging us further down.
This can lead to procrastination (making things worse!) and creative avoidance –
doing things that don’t really matter to distract ourselves or things that give us
pleasure, putting off the real work further.

Online sessions via zoom of two x 2 hours (you will need to attend both sessions)

This four hour session offers a practical and experiential opportunity to understand,
appreciate and acknowledge that different situations trigger people in different ways.

What one person will find ‘easy’ another may find ‘challenging’ and adding to levels
of stress.

Once we have an understanding of our personal ‘triggers’ we are then in a better
position to find the solutions to manage our stress, our workloads, and find effective
ways that enable us to feel more ‘in control’.

Code: BH/22/1090 Presentation Skills online (Microsoft Teams)

This virtual programme will give participants the relevant knowledge of giving presentations in the  virtual arena. It also includes several chances to practice their skills and receive constructive feedback on their performance. As most people find making presentations a nervous experience, the training will be both supportive and collaborative, building on each individual’s strengths and helping people to develop in areas where they feel less competent or confident.

The programme is a blend of interactive small group virtual sessions (using MSTeams) and individual work. It is spread over a period of a month.
