A training package has been developed to temporarily replace and fulfil the aims and objectives of one day face to face Advanced Inter Agency Child Protection course.
The package includes a remote distance learning element supplemented by a 4 hour online trainer led session.
The training is organised by South Gloucestershire Safeguarding Children Board Training Group and is targeted at all staff from all agencies who are working directly with children, or adults who are parents.
Effective child protection depends not only on reliable and accepted procedures for all staff involved with children, but also on their skills, knowledge and judgement and the ability to work together co-operatively.
Staff with lead roles in child protection require specialised training in order to carry out their work with abused children and families.
Please note it is recommended to leave a minimum of 3 months between attending Inter Agency Child Protection and Advanced Inter Agency Child Protection.
Suitable for advisors who have attended the 2-day stop smoking advisor training and would like to refresh their knowledge, skills and confidence. This annual update counts as 1 CPD point.
South Gloucestershire applicants only – must have completed 2-day Stop Smoking Advisor training.
This 1-day course provides excellent underpinning knowledge for both staff and managers who work in any agency or setting that supports people (and their families) experiencing Loss and Bereavement, including at End of Life stage.
This course is being delivered via Zoom. You will be sent a Zoom invite nearer the time.
If you are a South Glos employee you must request a Zoom Licence from ICT by logging a support ticket (Intranet Home Page, under ICT)
The course will run from 10am - 3pm with a 1 hour break between 12pm and 1pm.
The course will enable participants to understand the meaning of ‘end of life’, the experience of loss and bereavement and its impacts on self and others.
It links to the CQC's standards on:
* Caring: specifically around compassionate care, and providing a personalised approach and emotional support
* Responsive: for example supporting informed choices; open and sensitive approaches to support a comfortable and dignified death; listening to users and carers regarding end of life care.
As well as the Care Certificate, Standard 5: Work In A Person-Centred Way
Who should attend: All adult social care staff and managers supporting the needs of service users/carers.
Please Note: The course is not suitable for people who have suffered a personal close bereavement within the last 12 months.
After attending this course (Module 1) you may also wish to attend 'End of Life: Providing Care & Comfort - Module 2' (also a 1-day course).
The standard charge for this course is £80 per day. Please refer to our Course Charges on the Home page for information on discounts and exemptions, particularly for agencies in the adult social care sector.

The Purpose for the support groups
We realise that fostering can be really difficult at times. Perhaps the only people who really understand it are other foster carers and so therefore we want to give you a place to meet up.
There will be biscuits and/or cake, coffee, tea, and an opportunity for an informal chat at all of the meetings.
Although these will be informal meetings, each session will have a brief agenda, attendance list, and agreed group rules. This is to help those who don’t know anyone and feel awkward about coming along to a new meeting, to feel that they won’t be left alone on the side-lines.
Sometimes there will be speakers and topics as requested by the group, this will hopefully make it as relevant to your fostering as you like.
These sessions should be recorded on your Personal Development Plan (PDP).

Please note you have to do this training programme in order.
South Gloucestershire Council has launched a new interactive training programme that gives Health and Social Care Workers the skills, knowledge, confidence and practice to apply and comply with the Mental Capacity Act 2005. The programme is made up of interactive learning workshops. The new skills and knowledge gained from the workshops are then applied in the workplace and you will send us evidence. You'll be given feedback as you acheive the required good practice and compliance standard of the Mental Capacity Act 2005. The programme is designed for Care Provider managers, Social Worker and Occupational Therapy staff and managers, nurses and all other professionals working in health and social care. You can select from a series of modules as relevant to your job which are listed below.
How the programme works -
You attend a module workshop
You then submit evidence of what you have learned in the workplace (usually within six weeks)
You receive feedback which may be shared with your employer.
Once you have achieved the required standard for compliance and good practice in line with the MCA code of practice you will be awarded a certificate for that module.
Continuing Professional Development
This programme can be used by Social Workers as a basis for Accredited Learning under the South Gloucestershire Council/ University of the West of England Integrated Professional Development Programme
The standard charge for this course is £40. Please refer to our Course Charges on the Home page for information on discounts and exemptions.
The aims of this session are:
• To revisit why conduct and standards matter in local government
• To explore your code of conduct and expected standards of behaviour
• To have an update on recent lessons learned across the country
• To review new proposals relating to conduct and standards
• To provide all councillors with a refresher on the key issues of conduct and standards
Off The Record are delivering training for professionals looking for a greater understanding of the factors that contribute to resilience. The training is designed to explore the five different Resilience Lab sessions (Pressure Proof, Making Friends with Stress, Thinking Traps, Stronger and Reach Out) using the evidenced based tools and techniques and generate discussion on how these can be adapted within your setting.
Zoom will be used for the training and will use the breakout rooms for smaller group discussions. The training requires all participants to contribute and share their experience.
Attendance of all four 2.5 hour zoom sessions is expected.
This training session is appropriate for everyone who works in social care settings who interact, communicate with and support people who have dementia.
This day is an updated version of the course entitled, ‘Connecting with People with Dementia.’ The facilitators believe people who have completed the previous course would benefit from attending this course too, as it has been adapted to incorporate Positive Approaches to CareTM. The core principle of PACTM is that as carers, we need to change our approach in order to understand how it feels to be living with the challenges and learn techniques to support people in a person centred way.
The day introduces Positive Approaches to CareTM and will enable participants to develop their understanding and skills in order to provide person centred support to people who have dementia.
The standard charge for this course is £80 per day. Please refer to our Course Charges on the Home page for information on discounts and exemptions
