Schools and Care Sector First Aid -

First aid training suitable for the care sector such as care homes for the elderly, children’s residential care home and respite care centres. We are sensitive to the problems and complications that arise in care environments that may include self-harming, palliative care, dementia, mobility problems and vulnerable adults/children.

Our training approach to care environments

The care environment requires specialist insight, knowledge and skilled training to successfully manage those with unique and complicated needs. We are sensitive and conscientious to the problems professional carers have to deal with. We contextualise and structure the training to your specific requirements and care environment, delivering the training with your clients in mind.

First aid qualifications for care workers

We offer several formal, nationally recognised and contextual first aid qualifications suitable for care environments including:

  • Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (QCF) in England and Wales
  • Certificate in First Aid at Work (SCQF Level 6) in Scotland

Our trainers come from a range of professional backgrounds such as the emergency services, the military and outdoor professionals. We aim to match instructors to your specific training requirements. They are aware of the specific needs of various outdoor environments, fully understanding the problems and judgements that have to be made when dealing with incidents in stressful, dangerous and remote situations. Learn more about our trainers and what makes them unique.


Our training is very practical and hands on with a typically 70% practical to just 30% theory. Our courses do not rely upon the usual ‘death by PowerPoint’, instead we use progressive incident scenario based training methods. Our courses teach techniques proven to work in real life incidents and not just in a classroom. Our training builds confidence and develops first aid skills into complete incident management.

We certificate through our Ofqual and SQA authorised and regulated awarding body ITC First Aid. If you require a bespoke training package we can also certificate for this through our awarding body ITC First Aid.
