Health and Social Care

Our Health and Social Care courses are designed for people who work with vulnerable adults or children. You can enhance you knowledge and skills in school processes and safe guarding of people.

Lock-down Procedure in Schools :

This course will start by introducing the role of the lock-down officer then discuss some of the likely reasons for a lock-down, go over some of the steps you can take to prepare your school for lock-down as well as what to do in the event of a lock-down taking place. The course is aimed at teachers, school administrators and support staff. It gives them an overview of what to expect and how to act in a lock-down situation and is intended to inform and prepare staff rather than alarm them.

Positive Handling in Schools :

Positive Handling is a very serious subject. Knowing when and how to act in a difficult situation can be the difference between a positive outcome and a potentially career ending prosecution. This course will start by looking at some examples and statistics which highlight the seriousness and extent of aggressive pupil behaviour, it will then go on to explain how you can identify the stages of aggression and provide some tips on how you could de-escalate a pupil before they react. It also looks at where the law stands on this subject and finally best practice in theory if you ever do need to restrain a pupil.

Prevent Duty :

The Prevent strategy, published by the Government is part of the overall counter-terrorism strategy. This course starts with an overview of the Government’s Prevent strategy, and then looks at some of the reasons people become extremists. It goes on to cover the objectives of the Prevent strategy, how to base your actions on a risk based approach, what to do if you are concerned and much more.

Safeguarding Children :

Everyone, regardless of their age, gender, religion, ethnicity or background has the right to a healthy, happy life. Safeguarding is about minimising and managing the risks to vulnerable individuals.
This course, ‘Safeguarding Children’, is aimed at anyone who has a duty of care for, or comes into contact with children in their chosen profession.

Safeguarding Adults :

This course is aimed at anyone who has a duty of care for, or comes into contact with, adults in need of care and support, either as a paid professional or a volunteer. This includes, but isn’t limited to, those that work in domiciliary care, the NHS, community centres, prisons or with a family member at home, and sets out the roles and responsibilities everyone must undertake to protect an adult’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect.
