Code: BH 20/052 An Introduction to Coaching (Skill Boosters)
Coaching is a development approach that is focused around helping people to recognise and draw on their own resources in order to face the challenges and demands of their job.
As such, it represents an investment in building the capacity of your people and developing the long-term skills and abilities of your workforce and can be particularly effective for people who are new to a leadership or management role. In this short course, psychologist Sarah Lewis shows how coaching conversations can support your training and development goals and demonstrates key techniques and strategies through a series of dramatised conversations.

Code: BH 17/041 Continuing Healthcare Funding (CHC)
This course is mandatory for all staff undertaking Care Act assessments
To access the course click Continue in the box above.
Continuing Healthcare (CHC) Funding is National Health Service funding available to individuals to pay for their package of care and support when their primary support needs are due to their health needs.
Eligibility for Continuing Health Care Funding means that the provision of services that meet a person's health and social care needs are funded and delivered by the NHS and who has governance of this delivery.
Correctly identifying eligibility for Continuing Healthcare (CHC) Funding has financial benefits for the individual who might otherwise be self funding their care. It is illegal for a local authority to fund and provide care to those eligible for CHC funding (people who have a primary health care need) and without correct identification of people who might be eligible, the local authority might illegally fund and provide care to people, which would impact on the Community Care budget. Therefore, staff in Brighton & Hove City Council Assessment Services have an important role in identifying individuals who might be eligible for CHC Funding.

Code: BH 22/009 How to challenge (Skill Boosters)
Challenging others constructively in the workplace is a natural and healthy aspect of the collaborative process, indeed exercising the right to challenge others can help to boost our motivation and engagement. We may find challenging daunting, but a constructive challenge typically improves rather than worsens situations, and demonstrates a level of responsibility and emotional investment in our work. This course looks at how to challenge effectively by considering what’s stopping us from challenging in the first place, the different ways in which we can challenge, and the situations in which each of these challenges might be appropriate, and explores strategies and techniques to give us the confidence to express our opinions in a way that is both professional and constructive.
