We work with the AIM Group as our trusted training provider to provide fully funded Level 2, nationally accredited, and self-learning short courses which are available for our Volunteers and Staff.
We also offer these training opportunities to other charity and support groups.
Understanding Safeguarding and PreventDownload
The purpose of this qualification is to support anyone who is responsible for the safeguarding of people and for helping prevent radicalisation. It gives learners an understanding of recognising the signs of abuse, how to reduce the risk of radicalisation and the potential consequences of illegal online activity.
All of our staff and volunteers require this training as a minimum requirement and attend annual refresher training.
Autism is a spectrum condition that affects how a person communicates with others and how they interpret the world around them. There are around 700,000 people in the UK with autism – more than 1 in every 100, and about 20% of our service users may have a dual diagnosis.
Having a clear understanding of the misconceptions, diagnoses and support surrounding autism are just some of the essential skills needed when working in mental health.
Understanding Specific Learning DisabilitiesDownload
Having a learning difficulty means that people find it harder to learn certain skills. As this affects around 15% of people, it is important for those working in healthcare, social care and education to have knowledge of different Specific Learning Difficulties such as ADHD, dyslexia and dyscalculia.
Working with Individuals with Learning DisabilitiesDownload
Around 1.5 million people in the UK have a learning disability. Owing to the fact that they are likely to find it more difficult than others to describe their symptoms, a good knowledge of legislation and the healthcare system, as well as an understanding of signs and symptoms of various conditions, is essential for anyone working with individuals with learning disabilities.
Understanding Behaviour that ChallengesDownload
Challenging behaviour is causing increasing concern today as many individuals have increasing levels of stress and uncertainty in their lives.
This behaviour can be due to factors such as anxiety, neglect, abuse, learning disabilities and conditions like dementia. Understanding the causes of challenging behaviour is the First Step towards finding ways to support individuals and manage their behaviour.
Awareness of Mental Health ProblemsDownload
Mental health presents one of the greatest challenges to our society. With an estimated 450 million people worldwide suffering from a mental health problem, around a quarter of British adults will experience some form of mental health problem within the course of a year.
Children and Young Peoples Mental HealthDownload
Mental health problems affect around 1 in 10 children and young people.
These issues can include depression, anxiety and conduct disorder and can often be a direct response to occurrences in their lives.
Emotional well-being is just as important as a child’s mental health, therefore it is important for those working with children and young people to have a good understanding of the concepts, risk factors and impact of mental health.
