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.

 This course will provide participants with an opportunity to focus on your personal and professional goals and give you ongoing support to achieve them. The workshop is fun and interactive, and considers themes such as self-awareness, comfort zones, and confidence. As an online course it will contain a mixture of discussions and self-study as well as essential pre-course work. It is written so people at all levels within the organisation can benefit from it.

This course marks the beginning of 100 days of change based on a goal you decide. It will provide you with a network of people to share your 100 days with, gain advice, and inspiration from. This network can hold you accountable for making the changes that really matter to you.

Feedback on the FREEDOM method is that it has led to promotions, further study, improvements in confidence, self-esteem and wellbeing. It has encouraged people to take on challenges they never thought possible. Come on this course if you are ready to make changes in your professional or personal life and want to support the other participants for the next 100 days to achieve their goals too.

The programme will be run over two online workshops, allow 1 hour for home learning for the pre course work and two hours for the homework tasks.

Code: SGC/22/1276 Wellbeing Coaching - South Glos staff only (Deb Parsons)

These 50 minute coaching sessions with coaches will assist council staff in coming up with strategies and action plans to maintain and build their wellbeing and resilience. Unlike counselling which provides a safe space to explore worries and concerns, these confidential coaching sessions will help staff come up with individual plans to help them build their resilience, understand what they can do to enhance their wellbeing and overcome current and future obstacles. There are activities and exercises that wellbeing coaches can also give people to work through in their own time if they would find it useful.

Please note these sessions will be delivered by skype or telephone.  Your coach will contact you to confirm the best method for you.
