So you may have heard about the changes to the way training providers can deliver First Aid Training in the UK, like the inclusion of Blended Learning. But how will this affect you and what potential changes will you see in our courses?

Unlike other forms of training we offer such as e-learning, which covers courses including food & fire safety, First Aid is a very practical skill which requires time spent in a training room. Blended Learning will be a combination of independent e-learning and traditional hands-on practical learning.

These courses are delivered by one of our dynamic and experienced instructors to ensure students receive a realistic training experience, to give them the confidence they need to deliver life-saving care promptly, safely and effectively in real life situations.

Perfecting the blending method of these two types of courses will take some time and as one of the leading training providers in the UK; we want to be certain the delivery of our content is of the highest standard.

So far the feedback we have received on this subject has been mixed, however, let us reassure you; we will continue to offer our traditional instructor-led first aid training alongside the blended learning option, meaning you will have the option to choose which method you feel will be better suited to you and your fellow learners.

We want to ensure these changes are implemented in the timeframe provided by HSE, prioritising a smooth transition for our clients and partners. Below we outline our proposed timeline for these changes.
