Code: PCC/21/85 Healthy Conversation Skills - Behaviour Change

Hi ! How are you?

There seems to be a misconception around 'helping people' and a tendency to move towards specific training that is overly complicated, sometimes daunting and often ends up sitting on the 'shelf' - The Healthy Conversation Skills training aims to de-mystify the art of 'giving help' and build confidence in everyone.

This 3 hour, fully interactive virtual training is designed to encourage and support the philosophy behind Making Every Contact Count (MECC) with added peer support, networking opportunities and a desire to implement what they learn in their daily lives


We all have a shared responsibility to be healthy in the conversations we have with our residents/customers and each other. We need to invest time in the development of our skills now while there is a collective consideration of health and inequality made so evident in the current pandemic.

If people are empowered to be proactive and opportunistic in their approach to helping others with more complex issues like mental health and sexual health: they will need to be confident in having a basic conversation; using reflection, open discovery questions and a person centred, asset based approach.

Code: PCC/21/180 Safer Recruitment

Organisations that provide services to children are required to incorporate into their recruitment and selection procedures measures that help deter, reject or identify people who might abuse children, or otherwise be unsuited to work with them. 

Making safeguarding and promotion of the welfare of children an integral part of human resources management in organisations that work with children is an essential part of creating safe environments.

Following the 2004 Bichard Inquiry Report there are legal duties on schools, FE colleges and a wide range of partner organisations to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

For schools, Bichard specifically recommended that:

  • Head teachers and school governors should receive training on how to ensure that interviews to appoint staff reflect the importance of safeguarding children
  • No interview panel to appoint staff working in schools and colleges should be convened without at least one member being properly trained
