First Aid At Work Course: 1-3 June, Kinson

What is the First Aid At Work Course?

FA020315This is a three day course, looking at emergency first aid 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.

Emergency First Aid, 21st April, Kinson

IMG_8852What is the Emergency First Aid At Work Course?

This is a one day course, focused on those immediate workplace first aid issues that arise.  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.  It may be that urgent help is needed (unconscious/not breathing/choking casualty) or it may be you need to stabilise a casualty’s condition before seeking more assistance (burns/external bleeding).   This course provides you with the information to quickly and safely act.  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 may need to rely on you before paramedic help can get to them.

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.

If you would like to undertake the test it will take just a few minutes to complete. 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.

What is the Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid Course?

Here at Evince™ Training we are very excited about delivering the The AoFAQ Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid (QCF) qualification.

This is a one day regulated first aid qualification is specific to infants aged under 1, and children aged from 1 year old to the onset of puberty. If is ideal for parents and babysitters.

This qualification is the first unit (day one) of the AoFAQ Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid (QCF). This latter qualification meets the requirements of the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) as issued by the department for Education and Skills Foundation Stage relating to Early Years childcare.

What will we be doing?

We will train you to be prepared for paediatric emergencies that could strike at any time.  Whilst such emergencies are thankfully rare we will raise your awareness to provide vital support while waiting for professional paramedic treatment.  We want you to be reassured that any steps you take will follow the right approach.  We will work with mannequins so that you can get hands-on experience.  Preparing to provide paediatric first aid necessarily requires a very different approach to supporting adults.  Approaches to urgently supporting adults you may have picked up over the years are very unlikely to help babies and children, in fact real harm could be done.  We will provide you with simple, appropriate treatments for babies and children.  We anticipate that we will de-bunk the odd myth as well.

Evince Training Limited is extremely proud to be an authorised centre offering AoFAQ Regulated First Aid Qualifications. The fact that our courses marked with (QCF) are regulated by Ofqual, the Government’s office for qualifications, gives you confidence in our attention to detail and commitment to achieving and maintaining the highest standards.

Teachers report surge in parental aggression

Parental Aggression

Learn more about our Conflict Management for Teachers programme here

Parental aggression is revealed as a key issue in a Times Education Supplement poll, with three quarters of teachers believing parents’ behaviour towards them has deteriorated over the last five years.  Primary school staff are considered the most vulnerable.

At Evince Training we have all the tools needed to address these challenges – helping you to maintain the safety of all staff, pupils and visitors on school premises.  Typically we work with senior leaders to provide bespoke packages for teaching staff, teaching support staff and, importantly, administrators who often feel like they are on ‘the front line’.  We have successfully helped Heads, teachers and support team members gain confidence in managing parental aggression without degrading important relationships where the needs of vulnerable children could be lessened as a consequence.

Providing blended learning, we offer the opportunity to enhance communication skills and to learn to risk assess dynamically in ways convenient to the school and the learner.  We use Boal workshop techniques to utilise the power of theatre to create safe learning opportunities for professional staff who need additional skills, in what can become a difficult if not dangerous environment.

Don’t let lethargy set in, you may regret it later.  Act now. Contact Evince and let us use the experience we have of successfully tackling aggression and teaching others to do so too.  Contact us today to start a conversation about keeping your school safe.
