It’s always a good time to learn online: why e-learning offers something for everyone.

When looking for training courses, there are many reasons why people can’t sign up for face-to-face learning.

Sometimes it’s work patterns or shifts, sometimes it’s family commitments. Or maybe there’s nothing available in your area.

So it’s easy to see why so many people are taking up online courses. You can learn at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home (or wherever else you choose!) and at any time of day or night. So it’s an attractive and accessible alternative to the classroom.

Parents First Aid Training

First Aid for Parents

One of the biggest fears for many parents (and grandparents) is finding themselves having to deal with an accident or medical emergency involving their child.

It’s awful to think about being in a situation like this and not knowing what to do.

Obviously there are precautions you can take to keep your children safe at home and when you’re out and about. But if the worst happens, would you know what to do? Our First Aid for Parents training can help you.

Christmas Food Health and Safety

Christmas Food Safety

The worst thing is having to cut your Christmas day short because someone has food poisoning. Knowing how to properly cook and store food this Christmas could save you a lengthy trip to A&E. Also consider how you are preparing food for parties and how long you should keep the left overs after.

Children can be First Aid Heroes!

Children can be First Aid Heroes!

This years World First Aid Day saw an outcry for all children to be taught first aid and to add it to the curriculum. This year the First Aid Responder of the Year was a child called Karen from Iceland who performed CPR on her mother who was having an epileptic seizure on a bus. With the right knowledge anyone can save a life, anywhere. Most of the time children save lives using first aid knowledge they have learnt from doing extra curricular activities such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award, Cubs and Rainbows. If every child was taught basic first aid it would increase awareness and the amount of lives saved dramatically.
