Training for life

Moving and Handling Training for Special Needs – Multicare Medical is delighted to present our new SEN Staff Training Programme, empowering school environments to become better and safer places for staff and students.  Drawing on our extensive experience, we have developed a unique portfolio of training courses to educate staff, minimise injuries and maintain student safety, dignity and confidence. With courses structured to your needs, our training programmes offer value for money together with serious practical advice.  Hands-on training with real life-based scenarios ensure carers and teachers have time to practice and develop real skills for the real situations that they will encounter in your school. We have skilled trainers available, all of whom are experienced in moving and handling and are able to offer solutions to the unique challenges your staff face.

The Hidden Costs – minimise the risks

Have you ever considered the cost and implications of a back injury to a member of your staff?  Not only sick pay (which could go on for a considerable period of time) but the costs of temporary staff, disruption and even potential litigation.  Even worse, if one of your students was injured, how would this affect them and impact your school’s reputation? Cases of injury also impose ‘human’ costs (in terms of the impact on the individual’s quality of life, associated distress, and, for fatal injuries, loss of life), as well as the ‘financial’ costs. As a responsible person, how can you ensure your school does not suffer these costs?

Who benefits from training?

Some of the key areas that we have identified as benefiting from training are as follows:

Management – Compliance with the law, peace of mind, increased efficiency (Staff time), reduced likelihood of litigation and associated costs from injury. Help with the production of Risk Assessments and associated documentation.

Carer staff – Have more confidence in handling students, have more time due to the increased efficiency, are kept safer and have less risk of injury. Achieve consistent care standards.

Students – Are kept safer, are cared for better, have improved wellbeing, are more comfortable during manual handling.
