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.

AoFAQ Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid (QCF)

first-aid-for-babies-and-children-short

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.

[hr]

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.

[box type=”info”]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. You also have the reassurance that by choosing our regulated courses you have complied with the employers requirement to exercise ‘due diligence’ placed on you by the HSE.[/box]

What do you get at the end?

This is a regulated level 3 qualification and is ideal for anyone who works with or comes into contact with infants and children in their working or voluntary roles. It is also ideal for babysitters, parents and families with young children who would like to learn first aid for their own peace of mind.

Further Training Available! The learner can progress to a range of qualifications with us including:

AoFAQ Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work
AoFAQ Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid
AoFAQ Level 2 Award in CPR and AED

Conflict Management / De-Escalation Training

conflict-management

Our Conflict Management training is designed for anyone who has to communicate effectively, be that with members of the public in situations where people may not act in a normal or expected way or with colleagues where challenging circumstances can arise.

It is not personal safety training, so please do not expect any throws, holds or ninja style moves.  This is in depth training that enables people to communicate effectively and to recognise and respond appropriately to danger signals etc.

The aim of the training is ‘to equip those attending the training to respond appropriately in confrontational or potentially confrontational situations.’

Delegates will learn about the common causes of conflict, they will learn about different types and styles of communication. They will learn about how to recognise and differentiate between ‘warning’ and ‘danger’ signs; they will also learn about ‘impact factors’. They will then learn how they can use this knowledge to keep themselves and others as safe as possible.

Delegates will be able to give examples of how communication might break down, they will also be able to describe strategies on how to minimise the risk of this happening and how to mitigate it if it does.  Delegates will then be given an opportunity to practice their new found skills in a safe learning environment in scenarios based on your particular needs.

The training is designed around a framework of 6 hours contact time. This can be tailored to your needs, for example, we have delivered it across three lots of 2 hour evening events over three weeks in the past. Our flexible approach to bespoke course design and pricing means that we can extend this programme for your specific needs.

Our flexible approach is focused on the principle of making training bespoke to the varying needs of each organisation we support. This allows redesigning knowledge elements to deliver them as a distance learning package at the VLE, our Virtual Learning Environment.  Tell us your needs and we will provide a solution.

We can also add an exciting ‘Forum Theatre’ style event at the conclusion of the day that gives delegates a safe way in which to practice their new skills.

Lone Working

lone-workerDo your staff regularly work alone on-site or by visiting public/private locations alone?  Do you work alone yourself?

There are obvious risks to working in this way.  Evince Training supports employers and their staff to introduce simple, common sense approaches to working.  We can also advise on simple-to-apply ‘breakaway’ techniques.

The course is intended to promote the principle of making staff “Be Safe and Feel Safe”.  This approach pays dividends with colleagues remaining productive and employers can demonstrate they take their duty of care to staff seriously.

The course lasts 4 hours, with up to 12 learners attending.

Conflict Management Online

conflict-management-onlineEvince Training is an experienced provider to schools across a range of topics.  Increasingly, employees in workplaces where services are provided

report conflict occuring with customers and members of the public.  Developing communication and management strategies for appropriate de-escalation of aggression and recognising the danger signs that can lead to violence are key components of training staff to stay safe while maintaining a professional relationship with an agrieved person.

We provide training appropriate for a variety of staff roles, part of which includes online learning.  This standalone training package provides a shortened version of the full Evince Training course.  Nevertheless it will support employees with tactics and communication skills to weather difficult situations.
