This is Part 2 of a two-part blended learning training programme to be used to reduce face to face training time in accordance with COVID19 regulations.

Part 1 of the training (a virtual session via Skype or Teams) must be completed prior to attending Part 2, which is a face to face practical.

The Part 2 practical can also be applied for if candidates have attended a live SKYPE version of this course tilted “Moving and Handling of People and Objects for Care Support Workers/Volunteers and PAs - Foundation Level - Covid19 Interim Training Programme”

To adhere to Covid19 regulations this face to face course will be small groups with PPE masks, aprons and gloves provided.

The course is 2.5 hours long and will cover practical elements of:

  • Mobility testing
  • Sit to stand techniques
  • Assisting from chair to chair
  • Assisting in and out of bed, including the use of bed levers, bed pulls, non-slip slide sheets, leg lifters, utilising the profiling mattress
  • Walking aids
  • Assisting to walk techniques
  • Handling belts
  • Assisting clients on steps and stairs
  • Sliding boards
  • Turning aids
  • Dressing aids
  • Wheelchairs, including placing a wheelchair into a car

 

For the practical element participants attending should be fit, dressed appropriately and able to fully participate. Footwear should be flat/ low heel and closed in toes. No flipflops. Candidates will need to wear PPE.

NB. please note there is no access to any drinks or refreshments, so candidates will need to bring their own with them.

The course does not cover clients with restricted mobility, i.e who need hoisting or spend longer periods in bed. This is covered in an additional 2-part blended learning session. The 2-part foundation course must be completed before the restricted mobility course is undertaken.

During Covid19 restrictions these 2 courses replace the:

  • Moving and handling of objects ½ day
  • Moving and handling of people foundation level full day
  • Moving and handling advanced level, hoisting ½ day
