Basic Epilepsy Awareness Training - for Learning Disability Services (non ESCC) ONLY
This training is ONLY suitable for those working in a Learning Disability service. ESCC staff should not attend this training but should refer to the ESCC DPS ONLY programme.
At the end of the training, a Community Learning Disability Nurse will demonstrate how to administer emergency medication used in epilepsy and you will watch a DVD of safe administration of Buccal Midazolam. You will also have the opportunity to practice the administration of rectal diazepam.
If you require the rectal Diazepam training, please contact the Adult Social Care training team at email@example.com to confirm this. There is specific equipment needed that will only be brought on courses where delegates have confirmed a need for rectal Diazepam training.
Your manager will be responsible for providing on going support in the workplace but it will be your responsibility to highlight any concerns you have regarding administration of the medication.
· A certificate of attendance will be provided; this is not a certificate of competence.

The qualification is equivalent to the Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering and the Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Retail.
IMPORTANT: All participants will be required to bring to the course photo identification as proof of their identity for checking by the trainer. Failure to provide identification will result in the person being turned away from the training. This is a requirement of the qualification awarding body. The following forms of photo ID are acceptable.
- Valid passport
- Signed UK photo card Driving Licence

- Travel Card
Where none of the above are available another form of ID containing a signature MAY be accepted e.g. credit card where the trainer is satisfied the signature on the identity matches the participant’s signature on the attendance list.
Personal Assistants in Health and Social Care
This half-day course is suitable for anyone interested in the role of the Personal Assistant in Health and Social Care.
The role of the PA is very different from other support roles in that PAs are working one-to-one with clients and not via a ‘care’ agency. As an employed PA, the client or their carer will be your manager/supervisor. If you are considering becoming a self-employed PA you will need to understand your responsibilities to your clients.
PAs are not registered with the Care Quality Commission and therefore, training or development will depend on either your employer organising training and funding for qualifications or you will need to take responsibility for your own professional development.
