  11. Safeguarding children
  12. Basic life support
  13. Health and safety
  14. Handling information
  15. Infection prevention and control              

Observations and assessments also form part of the assessment process. 




Nathalie John, Operational Director said: "it really was a pleasure to read and mark both Chelsie and Julian's work - they produced work of a very high standard."

Julian added:

"I really welcomed today’s session and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to engage in the role plays and paper based and one-to-one exercises. I learnt from this more of the expectations as a Support Worker for You first and to see my values backed up with operations was beneficial.

I do genuinely now feel more empowered and part of a collective team and look forward to ongoing training opportunities to build my learning and add ongoing and future value to You First."
