Free Training for Personal Assistants : Emergency First Aid at Work

Are you employed as a Personal Assistant for an adult over the age of 18 and feel you could benefit from further training? Or do you employ your own Personal Assistants and want to further their skills and knowledge, as well as your own?

Throughout 2018 we have been running a free training schedule alongside Skills for Care and Sheffield City Council specifically targeted towards personal assistant’s employed by disabled individuals.

Places are still available on our Emergency First Aid at Work course on 11 February from 9.30-4.30 at Moorfoot Learning Centre

A one day course, this qualification will enable learners to attain the knowledge and competencies needed to deal with a range of emergency first aid situations. Learners should be able to demonstrate the practical administration of safe, prompt, effective first aid in emergency situations with an understanding of the role of the first aider.

Be physically able to carry out the practical elements of the course.
Attend full session to be eligible for assessment.

Learners will be able to:
• Understand the role and responsibility of an Emergency First-aider.
• Assess a First Aid incident.
• Manage an unresponsive casualty who is breathing normally.
• Manage an unresponsive casualty who is not breathing normally.
• Recognise and assist a casualty who is choking.
• Manage a casualty who is wounded and bleeding.
• Manage a casualty who is in shock.
• Manage a casualty with a minor injury.

There are practical elements to the course e.g. CPR and recovery position. Learners are advised to wear clothing that does not restrict their ability to take part in this activity.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
