Forthcoming events and training

Carers meetings, training calendar and other events

In order that Shared Lives carers keep their knowledge and skills up to date they are expected to attend at least one 'Carer and Service user meeting' a year, or a refresher training session.

Formal training courses that need to be attended once every three years are:

  • first aid at work
  • medication awareness
  • adult safeguarding.

These courses can be booked through the Shared Lives office on 01865 897971.

Carers are invited to either join sessions being run three times a year for new carer applicants by the scheme, or you can attend a comparable course with the agreement of your Shared Lives link social worker. First aid courses are also provided by St John's and can be booked if necessary, throughout the year via the scheme at a venue or day to suit carers who are unable to join the Shared Lives group sessions.

Carers who have already attended a face-to face training session on adult safeguarding may complete their refresher online via www.logontocarelearningcentre.org.uk . Please ask your SL social worker for the course guidance.  Please send a copy of your course certificate to your SL social worker so that your training records can be updated.

There are also a number of interesting online courses that are available to Shared Lives carers on the www.logontocarelearningcentre.org.uk   website which will also provide you with a certificate for your continuing professional development. Carers working towards the Care Certificate can discuss which courses they might want to do with their SL social worker.
