Think about what your initial reaction be if a child in your care started choking. Would you like to know what steps to take if someone started having an seizure?  What about accidents at work, if a colleague had a head injury, would you spot the signs of concussion? Safety training and first aid go hand in hand when it comes to attaining new skills. Our course will help you prioritise injuries and illnesses and make a call on appropriate follow up action:
