ARC England logoNew! Who Assesses the Assessors?
Medication Competence in Community and Residential Settings
  10th November 2021 10am – 12.30pm
A new ARC England live online workshop which will ensure a high quality and consistent approach to the handling of medication across your organisation.
NICE say that ‘Care workers completing [Medication] training should be observed and supervised by a competent person in advance of administering medication for the first time. This should be an occupationally-competent person working for the provider, not an external trainer.
Managers, supervisors and assessors are responsible for judging the competence of their care workers’ ability to safely administer medication for people who use the service.’
Managing medicines for adults receiving social care in the community, March 2017
But what is an ‘occupationally-competent’ person? And what assessment skills do they need?
This new ARC England workshop is aimed at managers, supervisors and assessors, equipping them with the skills, knowledge and confidence to assess the competence of others.
ARC Members: £90
Non-members £120

ARC England logoNew! ARC England Autistic Spectrum Disorder Training Programme

We are very excited to launch our brand new ARC England Autistic Spectrum Disorder Training Programme, a comprehensive three-day course that provides participants with a deep level of knowledge and understanding about Autism Spectrum Disorder. 
The course is taught by renowned Independent Autism Consultant Dr John Biddulph via Zoom and is suitable for frontline social care staff and managers, as well as teachers, education support staff and family members. 

In the words of Clive Parry, ARC England Director:
“This three-module programme is not an autism awareness course – it goes much further than that; it has been developed over many years so that delegates are able to work confidently and effectively and to have a tangible positive impact on the lives of people they support with Autism Spectrum Disorder.”

Discounted rate for ARC members: £250
Non-members: £300

We can also offer the following workshops for Trainers

Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (MCA & DoLS) for Trainers
Delegates will receive a full suite of handouts in advance of the workshop to guide their learning, plus a Trainer's Manual.

Supporting Medication in Social Care Settings for Trainers (previously known as Train the Trainer)

You will receive:

  • a trainers’ pack, including a USB with all handouts and PowerPoint presentation
  • a sample workbook
  • an additional 30 minutes of personal support from your tutor, with the opportunity to ask questions and discuss your organisation’s specific requirements.
  • a certificate of attendance
Costs for each of the above Trainer courses (including resources):
  • £200 (ARC Members) I £250 (Non-ARC members)

**Please note, these trainers’ workshops are only suitable for employees of social care providers.
