Early Years

The Early Years are the most important years of any child's life, here at The Training Fox we have designed our
courses to help the staff working in the Early Years make a difference to the lives of the children that they look after.

As the Early Years Foundation Stage says,

Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential.
Children develop quickly in the Early Years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five
have a major impact on their future life chances.

Our Early Years courses are designed to help our learners to aid children in their care to fulfil their potential and are aimed at people who work within the Early Years sector, these include:

                • Childminders,
                • Nursery Nurses,
                • Children Centre Staff,
                • Managers.

We will expand our courses in this portfolio in coming months to meet the needs of the sector.

Our existing course:

Early Years courses COMING SOON:

Observing Children in an Early Years Setting
Learning Through Play - Workshops
For more information on our Early Years courses please visit their dedicated page of our site by clicking here.

Fire Safety

Fire Safety should never be taken lightly.
Each year fire and the effects of fire cause substantial loss of life and extensive damage to property.

Under the Fire Safety Regulations (The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005) employers are legally required to provide information, instruction and training to employees about fire precautions in the workplace. Our Fire Safety
courses are Ofqual regulated courses accredited by Qualsafe Awards, and will assist employers to meet their regulatory requirements.

First Aid

First Aid training is an important skill that can help you make the difference between life and death.

Acting fast in an emergency makes all the difference, our First Aid courses are designed to provide you with the
practical competence as well as knowledge to do the right thing in order to help make a difference to another person's
life when they need it.

We are confident we have a First Aid course for you. Our First Aid courses cover most eventualities and also cover a range of subjects.

Our First Aid courses are taught like all our courses to our FIRST Principles, and we are passionate that fun is had whilst learning what is in essence a Life and Death subject.

Health and Safety

Health and Safety is a subject that gets a bad reputation.

Very often you will hear 'you can't do that because Health and Safety says so'
most of the time however, this is simply not true and an excuse to not do something.

On our courses we aim to clarify myth from fact.
In the UK, there are many Health and Safety laws, however most of this legislation is common sense and
this is the approach to take in keeping everyone safe.

Why not visit our Health and Safety Courses introduction page,
where we have got some health and safety cases, the challenge is to see if you are able to identify the myths and truths.

Our Health and Safety courses will help employers fulfil their legal requirement as well as enhance learners' understanding of Health and Safety issues in the workplace.

Moving and Handling

Moving and Handling is the main workplace activity that causes back disorders.
With this in mind it is important that we look after our spines and move and lift objects in a safe way.

Our Moving and Handling courses are Ofqual regulated and accredited by Qualsafe Awards.
These courses will provide learners with the understanding of why moving and handling is so important to carry out safe lifting and moving  practices.
Our courses will help learners to look after their backs within their workplaces.

Safeguarding is a difficult subject matter to attend!

We aim to deliver these courses in a supportive manner, answering your questions, concerns and worries as we go.
We want our learners to leave us fully prepared to safeguard the people in their care.

We currently have 2 safeguarding courses, one of which is certificated by The Training Fox
and the other is Ofqual regulated accredited by Qualsafe Awards.

Our Safeguarding courses are aimed at anyone who has a duty of care to safeguard someone in their work or voluntary role.

The Qualsafe Awards qualification is aimed at not just safeguarding children but adults as well.
