First Aid Courses for school staff

Nationally recognised and certified first aid courses

“The most useful things in your first aid kit are knowledge and practical skills”

Our First Aid courses are built around practical learning that is relevant to you. Nationally accredited and underwritten by OFQUAL, our courses are delivered to the highest standards by knowledgeable and experienced staff. Above all we will give you the confidence to use your skills when needed.

We can deliver all our courses at your request from Bewerley Park, East Barnby or a location that suits you.

About the Training

We believe in exciting and practical training courses, and aim to adapt the course to the participants as much as we can within the RQF framework. There will be a high level of practical and interactive work on the course. All courses will involve elements of work in as many different areas of your work environment as possible – including outdoors. All courses involve on-going assessment of your skills, formal assessment of your skills and multi choice question paper(s).

 

Further Information

More about the first aid training structure and the HSE.

The First Aid training and certification system has three main training routes available to people requiring first aid courses:

◾RQF Levelled First Aid Courses – Nationally recognised & certified through an awarding organisation

◾Voluntary Society First Aid Courses – Delivered by St John Ambulance & Red Cross

◾First Aid Organisation First Aid Courses – Internally verified by the organisation

The HSE does not now regulate First Aid Awards.

As such, it’s important you choose your provider carefully. The North Yorkshire Outdoor Learning Service has all of its First Aid Courses externally validated and accredited through Qualifications Network. This is underwritten by OFQUAL. This means that all of our courses are nationally recognised and delivered to RQF standards unlike those of the voluntary aid and first aid organisations who self-verify!

This means you can rest assured that your course is being delivered by a qualified and experienced trainer who will design the course around your needs as much as is possible.
