Very good course & very helpful trainer who makes you feel at ease

Esther has a very relaxed & easy pace which makes understanding the content of this course very pleasurable.

January 2020

The course was delivered in an interesting manner & we were made to feel relaxed which I believe made it easier to absorb the information.

The training was very informative & was efficiently provided to us using practical scenarios. It gave a realistic approach to an emergency situation.

The sessions were expertly delivered, informative & met our unique needs perfectly.

Esther is a fantastic tutor & I fully recommend her business. I found the course very useful & feel more confident should a future first aid scenario arise.

Very informative & ‘easy to take in’ course.

Enjoyed that we were able to do little quizzes & share back with the group.

I enjoyed the whole 2 days. Esther is fantastic teacher who put everyone at ease.

Thank you to Esther for explaining things & asking us if we understood as went along. Thank you!

I have done many First Aid courses over the years & found this one to be excellent. Esther’s way of explaining things / listening to us / helping us with little ways to remember things was really useful.

The course was very interesting & we were given lots of encouragement.

Thank you so much. This is the best First Aid course I’ve attended in years. I have thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks again!

Thank you so much! As a new mother & someone who volunteers around children & adults I now feel confident in a situation. So glad I took part in this course.

June 2019

Thank you for today, I think it’s safe to say everyone really enjoyed the course and on a personal level I took such a lot away from it (Probably more than I have done from my previous courses put together!!).
Delivered in a way that made it easy to take in information and a superb environment set.

I’ve just spent the day with Esther completing the Rugby First Aid course. It was one of the most thorough courses I have done whilst also allowing room for a lot of fun to cement the learning.
Esther delivers with confidence and a bag load of wisdom from her own experiences to make the learning experience relevant and applicable even if you’re from a non- rugby background. Highly recommend.

Community Rugby Coaches – Rugby First Aid Course

June 2019

Just like to say how much I enjoyed the first aid training I attended in June. It was very informative and the trainer Esther was welcoming and attentive. It was obvious that she had an extensive knowledge and shared it in a professional and friendly way. It was a pleasure to attend and the best training I have done in a very long time.

Foster Carers – Dudley MBC Foster Carers

Well explained & in depth. Practical learning was spot on.

Trainer was great. Learning was very enjoyable, explained very well. I have learnt so much today & I feel very confident administering First Aid in future.

Instructors – Kiel Tidman Black Belt Martial Arts Academy, Dudley

May 2019

Esther was very confident & knowledgeable yet down to earth on the world of first aid as well as what’s actually relevant to the group. The day has flown by!

My daughter & I both have a condition so I found the course helpful in dealing with issues that arise. Knowing & being able to act in an emergency is a very powerful tool to have as a parent.

Really good experience. Would definitely recommend this course.

Esther did a fantastic & fun course. She’s great! 😊

Rather than like attending a lecture, this course was very interactive & practical.

Parents Group – Parkfields Primary School, Wolverhampton

March 2019

The course has been really interesting & useful especially working with children in such a large church group.

I felt more confident at the end of the course should a situation arise. Would definitely use Esther again.

March 2019

Esther was very competent & kept the group engaged. Her knowledge was very good & her delivery of the course was friendly.


Esther is extremely likeable & very competent. All questions answered with great knowledge & friendly actions.


Brilliant! I have attended many first aid courses over the years – definitely the best yet!! Thank you Esther.


Very informative course, friendly trainer, more enjoyable than other first aid courses I have attended.


Really good course. The pace was fast enough to keep my attention but not so fast I felt I’d be taking in too much information that I won’t retain.

Hartbeeps Instructors – Black Country, Worcestershire, Solihuill, Telford.

A lot of my questions were answered before I even asked! Esther knew a lot of the knowledge in First Aid. A very lovely lad. I will be booking further workshops!

October 2018

Thoroughly enjoyed the whole course from start to finish!


Very approachable, friendly course. Great to have such a knowledgeable, interactive trainer. Very informative & I feel a lot more confident in First Aid.


You’re a very professional Instructor Esther. With your background you gave us a very informative course. We were not under any time restriction & did not make us feel inadequate with our lack of knowledge. Your training aids & information were excellent.


We’re really glad we found Esther! The course was not clinical nor did Esther read off a script. It was so much more relaxed & real or human.

Staff at Frontline Tools Ltd, Stourbridge

Sept, 2018

Fantastic first aid course received from Esther who went out of her way to provide the training on an evening so we could fit it in around our work commitments. Very professional and thorough and informative. I would recommend Skylark First Aid Training to anyone, from sports clubs to care companies.


Had to get first aid training for our new Karate Club just starting up. I must say that this is one of the best first aid training courses I’ve been on and Esther was so informative. I would totally recommend Skylark First Aid Training to any sports club.

Karate Instructors, The Fudoshin Dojo, Wombourne

Sept, 2018

I attended ‘Emergency First Aid at Work’ training on the 29th September, I must say it’s the best first aid training that I’ve had. Esther was amazing, and answered all of our questions, it was a very informative day, I will definitely be recommending Skylark. Thankyou.


I attended a one-day First Aid course yesterday run by Esther of Skylark Training. It was a fabulous, fabulous day.


I’d previously attended a First Aid course about 3 – 4 years ago & to be honest I wasn’t particularly looking forward to yesterday’s course, seeing it as a bit of a “chore” more than anything else. How wrong I was!


Esther is an extraordinary trainer & communicator and the class was awesome!


Esther is very hands-on & quite quickly we were interacting with her & she made us understand why we were doing what we were doing. We also had many first aid “myths” busted.


We covered a huge amount of core basic first aid skills & knowledge in a fun, upbeat & supportive atmosphere. There was always plenty of time for questions &, as well as Esther covering the necessary core basic skills, she tailored the rest of the day for our main career needs as Holistic & Complementary Therapists.


Esther made us aware of websites & Apps that also provided extremely interesting and valuable data that we could choose to follow-up on, outside of the class, should we so wish and she also offers an ‘opt-in’ newsletter service to keep students updated & appraised of changes to first aid legislation and Best Practise. Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous!


I would highly, highly recommend Esther & Skylark Training. I will certainly be encouraging my friends, colleagues & loved ones to also attend a class with Esther to learn & to be supported by her in these vital life skills. Thank you Esther

Skylark came to the hotel, completed the 3 day course along with some of the team. Can not recommend enough, Esther has a very engaging way of delivering such an important course content, the whole team found it not only very important and helpful but interesting and fun. Will definitely return to skylark when more training is needed.


A very concise and well tailored 3 day course, superbly delivered by Esther, explaining not only the technical need to know of First Aid but also the common sense behind it. Oh, and it was actually fun. Couldn’t recommend Skylark enough.


The course was extremely easy to follow and understand without the feeling of being bombarded by information, highly recommended.

Volunteers, Coombs Wood Canal Trust, Halesowen

Jan, 2017

I attended an excellent child & baby first aid & CPR session. The teaching style was great, very informative with excellent demonstrations & plenty of opportunity for the group to practice on the dummies. The content was exactly what the group had wanted with the focus being on babies & children. As well as being a practical session it was extremely informative with the techniques shown being easy to remember because of the teaching method / style. I would highly recommend Skylark for any type of first aid training, this session is an absolute must in my eyes for any parents or adults caring for children & babies.

I run a brownie pack and Skylark came along to do the first aid badge with the girls. It covered all the parts and the girls enjoyed themselves and learned the recovery position & putting on a bandage. I would recommend Skylark to any group wanting to do the first aid badge.
