Does your work place meet their compliance and safeguarding requirements?

  • Schools have a legal requirement to provide adequate first aid cover for their staff.  This is a requirement for your OFSTED inspection. Our First Aid at Work courses achieve this.
  • Nurseries, childminders and primary schools have a requirement under the Early Years Framework to have Paediatric First Aid (12 hour) trained staff onsite whilst children are present. This is a requirement for your OFSTED inspection.
  • Companies have a legal requirement to provide adequate first aid cover for their staff, our First Aid at Work courses achieve this.
  • Almost all organisations must have a Fire Risk Assessment. If this is not something you have we can help you write yours, or train you to do it.
  • One of the requirements under Fire Safety legislation is to have people in your school or business responsible for fire safety and train them. We can provide Fire Marshall Training.
  • Even if you do not have an AED unit, it is still a vital lifesaving skill to have to save a life. These units are now available all over the UK. The Isle of Wight have AED units covering nearly the whole Island.

Fabulous training from the guys both to adults on the course and coming into the school and helping the children from Reception to year 6 learn skills- came in very handy when one of our 6-year olds when faced with a medical emergency on a parent this weekend knew exactly what to do without panicking!! You can't beat that for fab feedback! Well done and Thank you Good skills

What an amazing two day Paediatric First Aid course that was. Totally enjoyed the days and learnt lots. A huge thank you to Barry and Larry for a very professional delivery of a very important subject. Well done

Was a great experience! Was really enjoyable and learnt a lot more than I thought thank you Barry and Larry! Top job

Fantastic training- friendly, relaxed, and informative.

Good skills provided my staff with excellent training, the course was very informative, and the guys made it interesting and fun. Would highly recommend them.

Excellent, very well conducted, very helpful and overall very happy.

Larry and Barry both came across as passionate towards their training. The course I attended (first aid at work) was delivered in a relaxed but informative manner. I’d happily go to them again.

Received 1st aid training with them at my place of work and Barry our trainer was excellent. He had the perfect balance of fun and information meaning the session wasn’t dull or just reading information. Felt completely at ease whilst being assessed and genuinely enjoyed the course. Barry was very knowledgeable and answered all questions thrown at him as a group, but in a relaxed and professional way. I have been on courses with other companies and just swamped with information and forgotten a lot, however I took in so much this time and enjoyed the day. Thanks A*.

Fantastic training for our staff exactly what we needed, highly recommended.
