£4,000 Cash Grant For Employing An Apprentice


Employers of all sizes in England can now apply for extra funding to help them employing apprentices, in the latest drive to revolutionise the skills and training offer across the country. The boost to the ‘Apprenticeship Incentive Scheme’ was confirmed by the Chancellor in the Budget in March. Businesses can apply to claim up to £4000 for each new apprentice hired as a new employee from 1 April until 31 January 2022.

Yasmine Lindsay of A1 Training in Shrewsbury explained the Government grants. ‘In a nutshell, if you have hired a member of staff after the first of April 2021, you are entitled to £4000 if they are aged 16-18 as a Government grant. If you have hired a member of staff over the age of 18 regardless of age you will receive £3000 for putting them into further training. If the member of staff you have hired, is also under 25, the government will pay your NI employer contributions for the duration of the apprenticeship.’

Cash Incentives For Employing Apprentices


The cash incentive is designed to help more employers invest in the skilled workforce they need for the future, as part of the government’s Plan for Jobs. It builds on the extensive action already underway to protect, support and create more jobs while bringing our skills and education system closer to the employer market and widening the opportunities that are available, as we build back better from the pandemic.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak said, ‘Young people have been hit especially hard by the crisis – which is why our Plan for Jobs launched last year is focused on helping them get the skills they need to get the jobs they want. By boosting the cash incentives for our apprenticeship scheme we’re improving opportunities for young people to stay in and find work – this could not be more important in our economy’s recovery.’

Gillian Keegan, Minister for Apprenticeships and Skills added, ‘Apprenticeships are a fantastic way for employers large and small to grow their businesses and will continue to play a key role in our economic recovery. This cash boost will help even more employers to invest in their future workforce, creating more high-quality apprenticeship opportunities so businesses have the skilled talent pipeline they need to thrive, not just today but also in the future.’

What Are The Implication Of ‘No Jab No Job’ For The Care Home Sector In England


On the 11th of November 2021 new laws will prevent anyone from entering a Care Quality Commission (CQC) registered care home unless they have received a full course of vaccinations against Covid-19 or are medically exempt from having the vaccinations. Care home owners will face a fine of up to £50,000 for each individual breach and the rules apply not only to staff but also to cleaners, hairdressers, medical professionals and even CQC inspectors.

According to the new legislation, those who are exempt include friends and relatives of care home residents, members of the emergency services, providers of maintenance services where there is a risk to life or the provision of care and those visiting a resident who is dying.

Close to 14,000 care home residents have died of Covid-19 and Public Health England estimate that a further 35,000 deaths may have been avoided since the vaccination programme began.

Today, the 16th of September is the last date for individuals to have the first of their 2 vaccinations in order to be fully vaccinated by the 11th of November when the new rules come into force. Of the 570,000 people employed in the care home industry in England, the Government estimates that 7% will refuse to be vaccinated. That means that 40,000 care home workers will become unemployable with unimaginable consequences on the provision of care for the elderly.

Peter English, a former chair of the public health medicine committee at the British Medical Association (BMA) is quoted in The Guardian “Care home staff are not being forced to be vaccinated against Covid-19. All that is being said is that they cannot do a particular job unless they are vaccinated.”

First Aid At Work Training Course Providers


What are your legal obligations as an employer!

All employers, whether a sole trader or huge public-sector business, have a legal duty to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work.

This legislation is laid out in Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 – updated 2015.

Every employer has a duty of care to provide or ensure that there are provided adequate and appropriate facilities and equipment to cater for his employees if they are injured or become ill at work. An employer should be able to assess the first aid needs appropriate to the circumstances (hazards and risks) of each workplace.

Where an employer provides first-aiders in the workplace, they should ensure they have undertaken suitable training, have an appropriate first-aid qualification and remain competent to perform their role. Typically, first-aiders will hold a valid certificate of competence in either first aid at work (FAW) or emergency first aid at work (EFAW).

As a business owner, it’s an important aspect of your legal obligations to assess your workplace for potential health and safety hazards. It also informs your decision on first aid training for your staff.

First Aid Shrewsbury can advise on group first aid training courses. Our group first aid training can be tailored to address the health and safety concerns of specific workplaces.

This beauty traineeship combines education and training and is focused on giving young people the skills and experience that employers are looking for. You will also get the chance to get some local work experience that will help you put what you have learnt into practice in a professional environment.

You will learn how to carry out detailed and confident consultations with clients, choose the most appropriate services and products, and ensure you know how to deliver an outstanding service.

Marketing and PR

How are you going to attract clients? Where will you advertise? Newspapers, leaflets, local magazines, social media? Make sure you have a marketing plan for the first 12 months and review it for the following year to see what worked and what didn’t. Effective advertising and marketing are vital to help create your brand image and awareness of your business.

Customer Service

How are you going to keep your clients?  Put yourself in the customer’s shoes. A great haircut or manicure may not be enough to keep customers loyal.

Patient Moving, Handling & Positioning Training


The modern working environment has raised various body ache problems. Back pain is also one of them. Careless posture is the main reason for the pain and it commonly comes from the workplace. People tend to sit in one position on not-so-comfortable chairs which results in various back injuries.  According to a survey, back pain is the single leading cause preventing people from engaging in work and day-to-day activities. This makes it essential to know how back pain can be avoided. Here are listed the 6 most useful tips to avoid back pain and mind your health and social care.

These simple habits can relieve you of your pain.

Strengthen your core muscles daily – Strengthening core muscles can help in improving back pain. Various exercises such as squats, planks, sit-ups, deadlifting, etc. can help in strengthening core muscles and making them flexible. Weak core muscles, on other hand, cause fatigue, back pain, and other posture-related problems.

Invest in an ergonomic office chair – A little investment in the ‘right stuff’ can relieve you a lot of extra costs. Ergonomic chairs in offices can help employees sit comfortably and work in efficient manners. It will improve the overall working posture and helps in minimizing the risks of chronic back pain.

Safeguard your back while lifting – While lifting the weights, it is necessary to take care of your posture and the technique of lifting. This impacts a lot on the back muscles and can lead to acute back pain and other injuries. If it’s your job to weight lift often, it is advised to know the proper technique of lifting heavy loads.

Dissipate stressors during everyday activities – Stress is everywhere, while inside the office premises or outside it. The way you take stress impacts a lot on your health. To avoid back pain, it’s better to diminish the causes of stress around you in your daily life. It’ll help you a lot to keep up with your health.

Rest after prolonged bending – Prolonged bending causes strain on the back which can cause pain and other spinal injuries. It is, therefore, necessary that you rest your back for a fine time after bending for a long time. Moving the spine in another way while resting can help avoid back pain.

Stretch your hamstrings – Stretching your hamstrings daily can help in avoiding back pain. It straightens the body posture and provides required support to the lower back and pelvis. This simple habit of stretching daily can benefit you over a longer period of time.

Conclusion


Movement and Posture play an important role to take care of your whole anatomy. The people who take care of the way they sit, stand, and work are often relieved of any such injuries. Therefore, you must take care of your position while lifting, handling weights, and moving heavy loads. Apart from this, the listed tips will make sure you are out of trouble while working.

To make sure, you don’t get any injuries just because of your posture, visit our super helpful course on Moving and Positioning Patients
