September Update from Jill Webb Training

Posted on

The period from Easter to Summer has been extremely busy.  I have delivered a variety of courses… from Safeguarding to First Aid to Working with Childcare courses, targeted at those people interested in working with children, a bespoke course developed for safeguarding leaders in charities and other courses.  The variety of my course offerings is one of the things I really enjoy about my role.

Spring Update from Jill Webb Training

Posted on

 

Welcome to the April mailing from Jill Web Training!  It has been difficult to schedule this update as it has become apparent that people are taking different holidays during the April period, so we hope you will find this message useful whenever you get round to reading it!

First of all, I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to my clients who have been in touch and who have been flexible with the re-arranging of training sessions due to a family bereavement, I appreciate it very much.

It is great to have this opportunity to look ahead and advise you of a few updates.  In conjunction of running my usual programme of courses, ie Safeguarding, a range of courses for parents and families, First Aid and Food Safety, click here for an updated list.  Please book now if you are interested in attending a First Aid Course in June as spaces are now limited.

I’m constantly on the lookout for new avenues of work and I have detailed below some updates you may find of interest:

  •  I’m delighted to be working with North Halifax Partnership to deliver a Working in Childcare Level 2 certified course. The outline of this course is for someone who may be interested in working with children to come along and find out more about it over a six-week period and to also gain certificates in First Aid, Safeguarding and Working in Childcare.  The course runs one day a week from May and, depending on eligibility, you may be able to access this course for free.  Therefore please contact me  If you’re interested or please pass this information to anyone else you know.

  • I have recently really enjoyed working with a charity in Cornwall.  They have secured some grant funding and, as a condition of this, had to produce an overview of their policies and systems.  I have worked with two colleagues to review their trustee board, their operational procedures, all their policies and have held a session for staff, volunteers and trustees relating to safeguarding responsibilities for each group.  This led to some great discussions and action planning.  I would really like to develop this further and to extend the experience and expertise gained to other organisations so please do feel free to contact me  to obtain further information or maybe you could let me know of a charity who would be interested and I’ll gladly make contact with them
  • Working with a different charity, I have held Zoom sessions to support staff with stress management.  The feedback from these has been great, the format of a 60 – 90 minute session was well received, and is something I can offer to any group of staff or volunteers.  Some comments received from former attendees can be exemplified as follows:
  • I’ve enjoyed hearing how other people manage their stress and also understanding each other a bit better
  • Useful to recognise first signs of stress and moving forward with things you can change rather than focusing on things you can’t change

I really do hope you have found this term’s update of interest and would love to hear from you with any questions or help requests you may have.  As we are now entering the holiday season with a number of Bank Holidays on the horizon, my schedule is getting quite busy for the next few months so please bear this in mind with any urgent training requirements you may have.
I look forward to hearing from you and to hopefully working with you again in the not too distant future.

Regards.

JWT now offering distance learning options for courses

Posted on Updated on

All courses are now running according to the new safety rules around COVID-19.

It has been a challenging 6 months for all of us, and for some of you this is the start of a new term, for others your businesses are starting to return to the office and others are still working remotely.

I continue to develop and shape my business to adapt to the new ways of working which COVID brings.  Like many of you, I set myself some challenges in lockdown and invite you to visit my You Tube channel to have a look at the results!  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdHKoTYJ04KX7huyQAkEx2Q

I am offering my full range of training both virtually and face to face.  Most of my clients are choosing virtual where possible, and recent projects have included training for charity trustees, delivery of safeguarding courses and a number of courses run using blended learning.

Blended learning is one of the new training methods I have to offer.  This involves the learners committing to an agreed amount of preparation time prior to the virtual or face to face training.  Sometimes this is done at home alone and sometimes as a virtual session before a face to face session.

As the dark nights will shortly be upon us, this is a really useful option for many customers, as the less time we spend face to face, we do of course reduce the risk of spreading the infection.

Some excerpts of feedback received so far as a result of this new teaching manner:

I much preferred to do the course over Zoom as I took more in. 

I feel the Zoom training was great, very ideal.  Prefer half Zoom and one Saturday (for a First Aid course)

*  Really pleased with the Zoom half.  Jill did a mixture of things to keep us engaged – breakout rooms, white board, Youtube videos.  Jill was fun and engaging.  The Saturday session – Jill was very interactive which helped me remember the contents

When I am training face to face, I have a full COVID risk assessment in situ to ensure that all government guidelines are adhered to, including having smaller groups, where needed, to fit into the room.

I am delighted to confirm that I am now able to offer the following new set of courses which have all been certified:

*  Designated Safeguarding Lead has now gained certification through CPD UK, this is for those with some existing safeguarding knowledge

*  An Allergen Awareness and Notifiable Diseases course was certified by CPD UK last week and is a continuation for anyone who holds a Level 2 Food Safety qualification

*  I have also been accepted as an instructor with NUCO – providing the option to run a fully accredited Level 3 Safeguarding course

I attach a summary of my current training offer and would love to hear from you if I can be of any further help to you and/or your organisation. I also attach details forthcoming first aid and food safety courses, along with an opportunity to join the first group of learners on the RFQ Level 3 Safeguarding course run via NUCO.  If any of these courses are of interest to you please contact me as soon as possible, as places are limited on all courses.
