About Skylark’s

First Aid Courses

I deliver a range of First Aid courses from short Basic Life Support workshops to full 3 day First Aid at Work qualifications. Are you a workplace or small businesses, such as an office, hotel, care company or shop, looking to benefit from bespoke training tailored to your needs? Or are you a local community group, such as a church or sports clubs like gymnastics, dance academy, karate or football club, & you’d like to upskill your group or volunteers?

 

If you with children you’ll be looking for specialist Paediatric courses, which are great for Nurseries, Schools or Childminders. These courses meet the recommendations given by Ofsted & the EYFS.

 

You might even be interested in learning ‘Baby & Child CPR’ as a parent or Grandparent or want your own children to learn essential lifesaving skills with a ‘First Aid for Kids’ session!”

 

All my courses are regulated, approved qualifications by the awarding body First Aid Awards. They are Resuscitation Council compliant & they satisfy the requirements of the regulatory body for First Aid – the Health & Safety Executive (HSE).
