Common Sense, not as common as you think

With trainers who have real world experience working in leisure, education, public services and commerce we like to bring a common sense approach to training. We ensure that all training contains practical hands-on elements, include real-world examples / scenarios and we work closely with in-house teams to ensure the letter of the law is applied with a dose of common sense. All our courses are fully regulated/accredited meaning you’re never compromising on quality when selecting us over more expensive national organisations.

First Aid

Learn a skill for life. Whether you’re an employer looking to meet H&S obligations with a First Aid at Work course, a nursery / carer requiring a paediatric course or you’re looking for something more specific like how to deal with anaphylaxis or use an AED, we offer Ofqual regulated qualifications to meet your needs.

First Aid for Mental Health

First aid for mental health is the initial support provided to a person experiencing a mental health problem until professional help is received or until the crisis is resolved. Many organisations and individuals are now realising the huge benefits that having qualified personal in the area can have.

Health and Safety

All businesses are affected by health and safety, no matter the size. The best way to make health and safety effective is through integration and culture within the business. We can help you do this through our services, not scare or bully you, but support you through the process so the result is you can self-manage and grow.

Pool Safety

Operating a public pool, hotel or leisure club facility or a hydrotherapy pool requires your staff have the appropriate training to operate safely. Whether for a lifeguard, teacher, coach, therapist or an emergency responder we provide training, assessment and ongoing CPD in pool rescue skills and related areas like first aid.
