Event description
Training for setting staff in Hertfordshire on safe moving and handling of children with physical disabilities

About this Event

Introducing our Safe Moving and Handling Training for the Children's workforce across Hertfordshire. This is a training course specifically for teachers, LSAs, MSAs and SENCos who support children with physical and/or neurological impairments where the child is unable to move without adult physical assistance. The sessions are aimed at any setting staff from preschool to secondary school who provide hands on support to a child with physical impairments. This includes access to toileting and therapeutic equipment.

Staff attendance at this session supports settings to comply with their duties under the Manual Handling Operations Regulations (1992). These sessions are not suitable for those seeking training or advice on general back care or how to ensure physical safety of children demonstrating challenging behaviour.

Attendees are asked to complete a short workbook of activities prior to attending a 3 hour face to face session. The workbook will be emailed following booking of your place and covers the theory and legal duties for Manual Handling. During the face to face session delegates are asked to engage in activities which involve some physical movements. On the day you will be required to inform the trainer if you have any pre-existing conditions which may affect your ability to participate in these activities.

To comply with current social distancing guidance, attendees are required to wear a face covering when attending the session. Numbers will be strictly limited, chairs will be spaced apart from each other and you will be asked to wait outside the building until the trainer invites to you in to the training room. We are unable to provide face masks and you will not be able to join if you do not have your own face covering.

Equipment used during the session for demonstration of manual handling techniques will be cleaned between all uses and attendees will be asked to use hand gel before touching the equipment. You will be contacted before attending the training session to confirm your details and will be advised not to attend if you/someone you live with are who is unwell or has recently tested positive for COVID-19.

There is no parking on site, please use the nearby town centre parking which is within walking distance. Refreshments are not provided, but you are welcome to bring a hot drink in your own travel mug or a water bottle with you.

For sessions at the Marlowes attendees are required to wear a surgical face mask, which will be given to them on entry to the building.
