Everyone Deserves A Safe Working Environment

How Our Tutors Assess Participants

PAMOVA Cymru utilises a number of different assessment processes to establish the competence of course participants prior to certification.  This allows course tutors to recognise the ability of theoretical knowledge and physical skills of participants.

No one assessment process is considered to be of greater importance and the participants must achieve a set standard in all areas to be considered competent.

These processes are:-

  • Continual visual assessment including tutors’ reflective practice at the end of each day.
  • Written theoretical assessment.
  • Oral questioning throughout the training.
  • Physical competency assessment.

All staff whose level of need is determined by risk assessment should receive training to ensure current competency in the use of physical interventions, which should adhere to approved national standards.  Staffing levels and skill mix should reflect the needs of service users.

The aim of assessing competence in training is to ensure that participants have an understanding of the technical and safety issues of each technique that is taught, and that they can demonstrate them to the standard required.

Other documentation involved in the assessment of the participants include:

  • Course Attendance Register
  • Health Questionnaire
  • Physical Competency Assessment
  • Course Participant Feedback/Evaluation Forms
  • Organisation’s Composite Evaluation Forms, (written feedback for the  organisation receiving training).

How Our Training is Assessed

All PAMOVA courses are tailored to meed the needs of specific organisation and specific service user groups.

PAMOVA Cymru’s training is medically audited, assessed and subsequently certified by several organisations including RRN (Restraint Reduction Network), GSA and CPD to ensure it meets current guidance and legislation.

The content and structures of our training programmes are regularly reviewed within tutor meetings.  This gives our tutors the opportunity to share feedback on their delivery and ensures our tutors are kept updated with current legislation.

Our tutors are observed and assessed on their delivery and performance by senior team members to ensure consistency of our delivery methods.

Evaluation and Record Keeping

PAMOVA Cymru collates and stores information for each training course it delivers.  All documentation is securely stored in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation.

Information stored by PAMOVA Cymru are:

  • Name and workplace of each participant.
  • Completed Health Questionnaires for every participant.
  • Teaching Log forms (which include training course, length, content, name of tutors, and organisation).
  • Participants written and physical assessments.
  • Participant Feedback/Evaluation forms.
  • Composite Evaluation forms, (written feedback for the organisation receiving the training).

Participant feedback forms are evaluated by the company to help improve the quality of our training courses.

PAMOVA Cymru pays particular attention to ensure that all course participants’ needs are considered throughout the training.

If further support is required by any participant, PAMOVA Cymru alongside the  organisation’s training department will decide the most appropriate plan of action to take.
