Mental Health First Aid Training

An increasing number of students and staff are experiencing mental health difficulties. The number of student complaints which include mental health concerns has increased over recent years and front-line workers often feel they lack the skills and confidence to support students or colleagues appropriately.

The Mental Health First Aid course aims to improve mental health literacy and will help participants to recognise the signs and symptoms of someone with mental health problems; to respond to various mental health crises, engage with, support and signpost people to appropriate help. It is a 12-hour course and will be run over two days. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance and a copy of the Mental Health First Aid (Wales) Manual, which covers the course content.

Further details about the course can be found at Mental Health First Aid (Wales) however please book through CORE.

Unconscious Bias Training

'Understanding Unconscious Bias' is an online module available to all staff and looks at how unconscious bias can impact many scenarios in the work place from recruitment and selection to team activities. All staff should find this module in their student list on Learning Central which you can access using your network username and password.

The module is an externally produced module from Skill Boosters and uses lots of video clips and is broken down into two modules and a test at the end. In order to fully complete the module you must pass the test. Within 48 hours of successfully completing the course, CoreHR will be updated to show that you have passed.
