Moving and Handling Children aims to enable delegates to handle children more effectively, in their work areas, using safer moving methods.
Whether at home, in school or college or in hospital this course uses a practical problem solving approach, using equipment and techniques tailored for those working with children, or for those assessing their Moving & Handling needs.
The course aims to enable delegates to handle children in ways which maximise the skills of the child and maintain the safety of the handler.
