Epilepsy awareness course

Epilepsy awareness course

Are you working in a role which requires you to have awareness of Epilepsy?

When introducing epilepsy, we must first recognise that there are around 40 different types of seizures.

Statistics show that one in five people will have a seizure at some time in their life although only some of these will be caused by epilepsy.

Epilepsy is a neurological condition that affects the brain and the nervous system and is covered by the Equality Act 2010.

The condition can affect people for only a portion of their life, or it can be lifelong.

Because of the varied nature of the condition an awareness of epilepsy and the actions you can take if you are present during a seizure is incredibly useful for those who work in health and social care.

Is this the right Epilepsy awareness course for me?

This Epilepsy awareness course is aimed primarily at people working in the care sector with children or adults however anyone who would like to expand their knowledge or understand what to do if they see someone have a seizure should take this course.

Having a knowledge of Epilepsy and the different types of seizure and the actions you can take if you are present during a seizure will allow you to take a proactive role in ensuring the person is kept safe and as comfortable as possible.

The course is one of a range of health and social care courses that we provide.

What our students say

Wonderful course, very easy to follow. Got me up to speed in no time at all on the basics of fire safety. Would recommend to others wishing to learn more about the basic principles of fire safety in the workplace.

I enjoyed this course and found the interactive videos easy to follow.  The course content is well thought out and provided lots of useful information.  I passed each module with flying colours and feel I now understand the basics when it comes to asbestos awareness.  Would highly recommend this online course.

The level 1 food safety for catering course was easy to follow and I learned a lot.  I enjoyed the way the course was delivered and how it was broken down into small modules, which made it easier to learn.  I have since completed level 2 food safety too.
