Care and First Aid

At City College Plymouth our first aid courses help support and develop the skills and understanding required by those working within all professions. Courses and training provide workers with the skills and knowledge in order to work effectively and with confidence.

Delivered by tutors who have a wealth of workplace experience, as well as industry recognised qualifications, you can be sure that the training you receive is of the very highest standard.

Guaranteeing Quality First Aid Training

The Health and Saftey Executive (HSE) have now removed its approval of all first aid training providers, which mean employers have new guidelines of due diligence to be aware of.

City College Plymouth has been a HSE approved training centre since 1997 and this means the training we offer if of the highest quality to meet you business needs.

We offer two routes to first aid qualifications, which businesses can be confident meet first aid at work training needs. Those options are:

  • College certificated training
  • CIEH (Chartered Institue of Environmental Health), accredited qualifications.

Our range of first aid qualifications offer businesses a cost-effective way of training staff, with prices starting from just £35 per person. You can choose for your staff to attend training sessions in the College’s highly equipped training facilities or alternatively, our expert trainers can offer onsite, bespoke training packages.

Courses are regularly updated to reflect the changing needs of the health and care sector and lead to qualifications that are nationally recognised and valued by employers. Many of our courses are accessible and flexible for full-time workers, and many can be tailored to a specific subject area, or to an organisation.
