Epilepsy Awareness – Full Training

Spaces are still available on the next Epilepsy Awareness Training day.

This course is for School based staff who supervise children and young people with epilepsy.

The course gives participants a basic understanding of epilepsy and all its implications. Participants will be trained to recognise seizures, to deal with them adequately and to respond to emergency situations with the use of medication.

Part 1 – Half day general epilepsy awareness training aimed at increasing the participants’ knowledge of the condition and confidence in dealing with people with epilepsy.

There will also be a short video, following this there will be a short test.

Part 2 – Half day session which provides the participants with the necessary theoretical and practical training in the administration of rectal diazepam, nasal/buccal midazolam and where necessary administration of rectal paraldehyde.

Following this there will be an assessment to evaluate whether participants have achieved required standards in the general management of seizures and the administration of emergency medication.

On completion of the course, participants will:

  • Understand epilepsy and its effects on children and young people
  • Be able to carry out First Aid management of an epileptic seizure
  • Be aware of the circumstances in which rectal, intranasal or intrabuccal medication should be given as an emergency First Aid procedure

After 2 years candidates will need to attend a half-day refresher training to renew their certificate.
