Our range of methods include:

  • Assessment,

In order for you to fully benefit from your chosen course, we actively encourage you to ask any questions that you may have as they arise throughout the duration of the course.

Early Years

The first 1,000 days of a child’s life are the most important.

Our Early Years Den is designed to enable staff working with these children to aid children to reach their full potential.

Education and Training

Lifelong learning is as important as the learning that is undertaken in the early years.

Have you got what it takes to educate those who come to you in their lifelong learning pathway?

Fire Safety

Fire kills!

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.

First Aid

In the first few moments after an injury or start of an illness, the immediate reaction of responders nearby can make all the difference.

Can you make that difference?

Food Safety

Be prepared for food inspections.

When working with food, high standards are important to ensure it is served in a safe way to your customers, you will also need to check your suppliers have supplied it safely to you.

Health & Safety

Health and safety often gets a bad reputation.

Ensuring your workplace is safe, ensures that your employees, customers and visitors remain safe and well.


Preventing the sale of age-restricted products is not just a legal responsibility but also a moral one.

Do you know how to prevent such sales, or want to get your Personal licence?

Mental Health Awareness

Looking after one’s mental health is really important!

Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience Mental Health problems each year.

Moving & Handling

Whatever the load, always think ‘spine’.

Moving and handling is one of the biggest contributors to injury in the workplace. Ideally, you should avoid moving a load unless it is absolutely necessary.


Safeguarding the most vulnerable in society must be a high priority!

Young and old we safeguard them all, by being prepared with the signs and symptoms to be aware of, you too can keep them safe.


Learning online from the comfort of your own home, can be really beneficial.
