Conflict Management for Schools and Colleges

Schools and Colleges frequently experience conflict.  This arises from students, parents/guardians and staff.  Learning new ways to understand conflict and to use communication tools to resolve tension and problem solve is at the heart of our approach.  Our experience is that the source of conflict varies from school to school.  As with every training programme we design a bespoke programme to focus on the specific issues relevant to your organisation.

We will provide a variety of learning resources, some familiar, some less so.  We find the use of theatre highly effective to reinforce traditional learning.  It introduces scenarios and the opportunity for your colleagues to engage, identifying the communication tools to reinforce the professional knowledge they have to blend new solutions to challenging situations.

Claire Addis, Principal at Jewell Academy, Bournemouth said of this training,

The team from Evince provided a bespoke package for all the staff at my school. It was delivered in an informative and enjoyable way, with lots of practical tips that all staff could use in their everyday interactions with stakeholders. Staff left the day feeling empowered and confident to communicate with stakeholders, having explored a number of real life scenarios. I would recommend that all schools provide this training for all staff as successful communication and conflict management is essential to the happiness and well being of all”.

All teaching is rewarding and powerfully so.  Helping professionals to work more effectively and comfortably in their environment rewards us in exactly this way.  Our commitment to you is to provide excellent teaching so that you benefit from our knowledge and practical experience, tailor-made for your specific needs.

Evince welcomes Kirsty Caswell to the team

We are thrilled to announce a new member of the Evince Team with the arrival of our latest associate trainer, Kirsty Caswell.  Kirsty brings strong skills and considerable experience from her NHS nurse specialist role.  We are particularly keen to make use of Kirsty’s skills in supporting our delivery of Mother and Baby first aid training.   Introducing herself, Kirsty said,

I am delighted to have become an associate of Evince Training! My background and “other” job is as a Resuscitation nurse specialist in the NHS where I do various types of training for NHS staff aswell as private GPs, Dentists, Dorset Police and Prison officers. I have lots of experience caring for both adults and children in Intensive Care and Emergency Departments. I have two young children of my own and I am a passionate believer that all parents and carers should undergo First Aid training. Contact me at Evince to discuss your requirements for adult or peadiatric training. Both bespoke and accredited training course can be offered.

 

Outdoor Emergency First Aid

At Evince we believe in making training relevant.  First Aid is learnt best when it is made bespoke.  And the context in which training takes place can reinforce learning.  Outdoor sports takes place in environments where applying first aid can be difficult.  Cold weather, bulky clothing, working far from assistance, can make successful first aid difficult.  At Evince we can help.  We will provide specific course material to match the hazards and risks in your sports or activity field.  We will help you practice in conditions to replicate likely scenarios you need to be prepared for.  We will expose the group to a full scale emergency exercise to test newly learned skills.  And to help you prepare for the reality of serious injury that goes along with the additional risks that outdoor sports and other activities carries, we will add a little blood to our staff role players to make training realistic and challenging.

Our course takes place over an action-packed two days.  It will be hard work but thoroughly worth it.  While we are looking at first aid topics we will also consider leadership/teamworking in an emergency situation and prevention planning.  But don’t just take our word for how good our outdoor first aid training is, read a testimonial from our last Outdoor Emergency First Aid course:

I have attended and received a great deal of first aid training through either work or my interest in outdoor pursuits. I can honestly say that the training delivered Richard, Diane and Nic from Evince was the best ever. Firstly, all instructors were hugely knowledgeable as demonstrated in their delivery, real life examples and how they answered our questions. Secondly, they brought with them a huge amount of training kit that we could practice with. There was absolutely no danger of not getting the chance to practice with a piece of kit, right down to (training) EpiPens and military bandages. We were also able to practice inserting an OP airway. Finally, the ratio of instructors to students was excellent meaning we never had to wait for the individual attention of one of the trainers. I left the course feeling very confident that if I was called to apply any of the techniques learnt I would be able to do so effectively.  Gareth B

Contact us today to discuss your group’s specific needs.  We can arrange training to meet your needs and plan the environment for that training.  Do you need to include a formal first aid qualification?  If so we can adjust the course programme to prepare you for the exam so that you ca gain a recognised qualification.  If you engage in activities in hazardous environments let appropriate first aid training act as an insurance policy so that you can enjoy your leisure time with confidence.

Remember, the higher the risk in your sport or outdoor activity the greater the chance that you will be exposed to an emergency that may prove life threatening or life changing for the casualty.  If it hasn’t happened yet, let us help you be prepared in case your luck runs out.

What is your learning style?

class-groupWe’re all individudals and this is as true in a learning environment as it is anywhere.  It is important to know what makes us tick, how we assimilate information to make sense of the world we live in. We can quickly establish our learning style to achieve this.

Of course we know the brain receives information through our five senses but theories about learning simplify this to the visual, the auditory and the kinaesthetic.  What we see, what we hear and what we can be tactile with dictates what we learn.  As individuals we may have a bias towards one of these sensory inputs or a combination of them.

Do you favour the visual, auditory or kinaesthetic?

But how can we tell which sense we subconsciously favour?  Considering well crafted questions with specific responses that identify how we interact with the world and reflect on our experience provides a real insight into our individual psyche.  The more questions that are completed the more effective the response analysis can be.

You will see your results immediately and you’ll also receive an email copy to retain.  Simply click on the button below and select the answer that most suits you when answering 30 simple questions.  As part of the exercise we will provide you with suggested approaches to learning alongside the analysis of your answers.

First Aid At Work Course: 5th to 7th December at Kinson

First Aid at Work 3What is the First Aid At Work Course?

This is a three day course, looking at first aid at work in greater detail.  Higher risk areas naturally require higher skill levels.  We discuss this in this article and it may help you to look at it.  This course will help you prepare for much broader challenges than the EFAW course can offer in a single day, for instance we will address responses to burns and poisoning.  Undoubtedly we will dispel a few myths along the way.

Whatever your work environment, the common factor is you will be working alongside others who may have urgent need of first aid, be that the result of a work-related activity or suffer an unrelated condition while at work. Remember, the national target for an ambulance’s attendance in a life-threatening condition is 8 minutes.  In the southwest area that target is met in 80% of cases.  Your casualty will need to rely on you before paramedic help can get to them.
