First Aid Tutor Annual CPD Portfolio Upload

It is still a HSE requirement that all those involved in the training & assessment of first aid training meeting workplace regulations under the First aid at work The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981, to undertake some form of annual observations under these regulations. This requirement can be read in L74 in Regulation 3, sections 56 – 81 First Aid Training this can be read here. Please note this Regulation will change on October 1st 2017 to reflect the HSE changes to first aid training, subject to ministerial approval.

Working with our Awarding Organisations, we strongly advise that those delivering first aid training to gain additional knowledge and experience & Continual Professional Development (CPD) in the subject area via a range of methods which can include:

  1. reading relevant articles,
  2. attending relevant seminars,
  3. attending organised CPD events such as the Internal Quality Process for first aid assessments,
  4. attending a relevant first aid training course as a student,
  5. gaining additional teaching & training qualifications.

It is recommended that all CPD is recorded and supported by a period of reflective practice to support your own trainer development.

Our friends at the University of Birmingham have written some guidance on the differing forms of reflection practices that you could employ to demonstrate your CPD here.
