Instructor Training Days – What’s in a name?

Here at Remote First Aid, we aim to be able to offer our clients including associate trainers, the very best services possible. We work with a wide range of UK Governmental Departments as a contracted Stakeholder. For instance one such Department we work with is the Department for Education (DfE), within the Educational and Children’s Social Care Professionals Services sector. We also work closely with the various Devolved Governments and associate bodies, for instance we work closely with the Welsh Government on Adult training contracts including supporting the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales, by ensuring their field staff, who work in some of the remotest locations across Wales, hold relevant and authentic qualifications such as the QNUK L3 Award in Outdoor First Aid.

When applying to work with any UK Governmental Organisation both they and we as a Stakeholder are expected to have the highest standards in the areas we operate, in our case Adult Education. We often get asked, why do you offer training qualifications in association with an Awarding Organisation? The simple answer is we can provide to  stakeholders a range of qualifications the UK Government already recognises via Ofqual and the RQF as being authentic and reliable. We believe in #RasingStandards to drive learning and development at all levels, including our own educators, quality assurers and facilitators.

Below is descriptors of how the Department for Education views the various layers of teaching, training and facilitating when we approach them as a stakeholder.
