Emergency Paediatric First Aid training
Our Emergency Paediatric First Aid Training is run by a qualified paramedic from First Response and covers everything that you need to know should an emergency situation involving a child or baby arise.
The training is suitable for anyone who works with children or babies in a professional setting and is compulsory for all newly qualified nursery staff.
Team Team Training
Team Teach teaches participants the principals of understanding and recognising the reasons behind challenging behaviours.
Most special educational needs settings will insist on all staff being Team Teach trained due to the nature of the provisions so if you are planning on working in an SEN school or residential setting this is course is essential for you.
Cover Supervisor Training
Cover Supervisor Training offers participants the opportunity to develop their classroom and behavioural management skills and gives them the tools they need to think on their feet in situations where no classwork has been set.
The training is suitable for anyone who is considering work or currently working as a cover supervisor. To learn more about the role of a cover supervisor and what is required, look at our blog: Could you be a cover supervisor?
