Anyone can attend, but we hope that those working in schools or primarily youth focussed environment will find a great amount of benefit from it that they can take and apply to their daily working lives

Objectives: Over the two days, this course aims to teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis situation and even to potentially stop a crisis from happening. Each delegate will be given the time that they need to work through different scenarios and ask questions so that they can get as much out of the course as they feel that they need

Alongside our standard First Aid Qualifications, we have decided to run combined learning courses whereby the delegate can choose an option of three days classroom based learning, or a mixture of online, theory based learning for one day of the course and two days face to face practical learning throughout the period whereby current COVID restrictions are in place.

Please see below for a list of new courses where we are offering this delivery option:
