Paediatric First Aid Training Launches In North London
February 25, 2013 Education News(PRLEAP.COM) Train Aid Ltd is set to launch its popular range of paediatric first aid courses in a new Location within London. The new open course will be held in Highgate (North London) and will run alongside the ever popular Selhurst (South London) course. The first instalment of the new training course will start on Saturday March 2nd and finish on Saturday March 9th 2013. The training follows the syllabus of the Early Years Foundation stage, which covers child workers during their careers. This latest edition from Train Aid should enable more candidates to access affordable training. Currently many child workers living in North London have been cut off by long journey times and the associated costs.
The move has been partly initiated because of the overwhelming response of its South London equivalent. The training appears to be pitched at an affordable price that many nannies, nursery workers and carers feel they can afford. The course appears to sell out each week, and has received good reviews. The only negative is that some candidates have complained about having to make long journeys South of the River.
The new line of paediatric first aid courses should open up the training to candidates living in North London, and even those who live in the Northern Home counties. It should reduce journey times, open up the market place and lower the overall cost for the candidate. Highgate is easily accessible from any part of London, and connects directly to London bridge main line station, which is one of the capitals great transport hubs.
The new Training course will run over two consecutive Saturdays, as per the South London equivalent. This appears to suit the 1000's of child workers who work during the week and then break at the weekends. Many open courses are held during the week, which means that people struggle to update their first aid certificates. Train Aid's Ellie Hayward was on hand to give her thoughts on the matter:
"This latest move makes sense as I myself know that many people were travelling long distances to our courses. It seemed a bit unnecessary as the company also has a presence in North London. I am glad there is now a course running monthly in North London and expect it to prove as popular as the others"
Overall this latest training edition should add competition to the marketplace, which should help consumers and lower their costs.
