Paediatric Moving & Manual Handling for Children with Physical Disabilities (not including Hoisting)

Home > Paediatric Moving & Manual Handling for Children with Physical Disabilities (not including Hoisting)

Moving and handling pupils is often an unavoidable part of working in special education and there is a need to ensure that both children and staff are fully trained. It is recognised that the risks of injury from moving and handling pupils with medical needs can be greatest with regard to pupils with special educational needs. It is important that relevant staff have up-to-date training every year.


 This is a half day course.


Why should I attend?

This course introduces the problems associated with caring for children and young people needing assistance with moving or who use a wheelchair and offers the opportunity to practice up to date techniques and explore strategies for the safer handling of children and young people.


What will it cover?

By the end of the course, participants will have:

  • Reviewed spinal anatomy and biomechanics to enable staff to understand the importance of back care in the workplace and in all aspects of daily life
  • setting in line with current accepted good practice


Who is it for?

This course is designed for staff who are new to working with children and young people who have care / mobility needs or staff who are out of date with current best practice. It will focus on the particular issues that may arise in the paediatric setting, but the use of mechanical aids such as a hoist will not be covered.
