*NEW*  Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid RQF/Forest Schools First Aid (Combined) Half Day (4 Hour) module

 If you run, or work within a Forest Schools setting and need a Forest Schools First Aid qualification, but also need an EYFS/Ofsted compliant Paediatric First Aid qualification this will save you time and money!

How it works:

Firstly, attend one of our popular ITC Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (RQF) courses to gain EYFS/Ofsted Compliance.

Then by just attending one of our additional Half Day, Forest Schools First Aid Modules (4 hours) you will receive the additional Forest Schools First Aid qualification.

Most of this module will take place outdoors, covering scenarios specific to the Forest Schools outdoors environment.

“Please note that the Forest Schools Module must be completed within 8 weeks of the Level 3 Paediatric First Aid qualification”.

We will be running a minimum of one Forest Schools Module every 8 weeks.

Cost £75 for the Level 3 Paediatric First Aid qualification, with an additional £45 for the Forest Schools module & qualification.

This is a total combined saving of £75 plus one and a half days less time away from work!

We have been using 2nd chance First Aid for all our first aid / Epi-pen courses for the last 6 years. 
After completing 1st aid training every 3 years for the last 20 years I personally found some training centre's in the past have become monotonous and strained in there approach to teaching 1st aid. With all trainee's minds focusing not on the holistic approach to 1st aid - but the pass or fail re-enactment test at the end of the course.
Thankfully with 2nd chance 1st aid the course is held at a venue of your choice - this helps in keeping a calm environment which inevitably helps staff  retain information. Neil ensures the course is suitably tailored to the group and ensures all his information and teaching techniques are currently endorsed practices. 
1st aid training is a serious training qualification, however my staff (especially new to child care) have remembered lots of detailed information due to the fun yet importantly informative way Neil teaches.
Roll on March 2012 when we will be seeing Neil again.
