Skills for Care are funding Moving & Handling Training that is being delivered by WECIL. Carers have the chance to expand their care skills, by getting accredited certification in Moving & Handling, with Infection Control on 1 March 2022.
What is Moving and Handling?
Working within healthcare and social care often involves moving, lifting or otherwise manually handling people. With this in mind, moving and handling training programmes are designed to highlight the risks and requirements associated with manual handling.
Safe moving and handling requires healthcare employees to know the correct procedures for moving adults and children without causing injury to either themselves or the person they are supporting.
This includes learning to use hoists and other aids, and being aware of the legislation surrounding moving and handling. Training may include the moving & handling of patients or general moving & handling training.
This course is very popular, at no cost to carers and places are limited so sign up as soon as you can. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
