CST Training offers a wide range of online courses to help you further your career. Within this selection are a number of social and health care courses. 

But what makes social and health care courses so important? The following blog will highlight some of our most popular courses

Social & Health Care Courses: Allergen Awareness 

Over the years there has been an increase in the awareness of food allergies. This has impacted the food industry in a number of ways. 

Regardless of your job, it’s vital that you know how to prevent cross-contamination when working with food. Being in any way lax around food could lead to serious problems for you, your customers, and your business. In many scenarios you could even face legal action. 

Allergens are a complicated business, though. It can be tricky to know off the top of your head which allergens can be found in raw ingredients. Thankfully, there’s a government agency whose sole purpose is to keep businesses on track. 

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) is responsible for monitoring and assessing food allergens. They also advise businesses on which foods need to be labelled as containing allergens.

Ever wondered which ingredients require a food to be pre-packaged with allergen labels? These include cereals with gluten, crustaceans, eggs, fish, peanuts, soybeans, milk, most nuts, celery, mustard, and sesame. Also included are sulphur dioxide or sulphites, lupin, and molluscs.

The Allergen Awareness course from CST Training costs £30 plus VAT, and lasts between 100 to 130 minutes. It is accredited by the CPD.

Stroke Awareness

Strokes can be very sudden, and very subtle. If you don’t know what to look out for, then they can be easy to miss. 

It’s common to associate strokes with old age, but in reality, strokes can happen to anyone, at any time. Learning about how to spot and how to react to someone having a stroke could end up saving a life. 

The course will cover every type of stroke, as well as the symptoms, and the risk factors. Treatment options and the long-term impact of the condition will also be covered. 

The Stroke Awareness course from CST Training costs £20 plus VAT, and lasts between 55 to 80 minutes. It is accredited by the CPD.

Social & Health Care Courses: Positive Handling in Schools

Duty of care is crucial for all those involved with schools or nurseries. It’s of utmost importance that you know just how to handle confrontational situations. If you don’t know how to act in such a scenario, you could be risking your career. 

This course will cover examples and statistics that display the seriousness of aggressive pupil behaviour. Also covered will be how to identify aggression, and how to de-escalate before a child lashes out. The course will look at the relevant laws, and how to restrain a child safely if it comes to that. 

The Positive Handling in Schools course from CST Training costs £20 plus VAT. It’s accredited by the CPD, and lasts between 100 to 130 minutes.
