We are currently looking for sports first aid training provider to help us ensure a safe environment for our youth work.
Our church youth ministry does a lot of active sports and other activities. From weekends away climbing and canoeing to weekly dance sessions.
We want to ensure that our youth have the skills available to treat themselves and their friends if injuries happen. We also, obviously, need to ensure our adults and supervisors are suitably qualified to administer first aid in case of problems.
We need to find a supplier who can provide both in-house and off-site first aid training.
Youth First Aid Course
We need someone to deliver in-house training twice a year. It will need to provide certification suitable for basic sports and fitness environments and be recognised by a relevant body such as Qualifications Wales.
Each group will consist of between 12 and 16 young people aged between 10 and 15 years old. We envisage splitting this into 2 courses with 1 group aged 10 -12 and the other 12 -15.
Obviously, we are happy to take the lead from our future trainer as to how best to deliver the course.
This training should be suitable for young people and cover the basics of first aid with additional concentration on soft muscle injuries and sprains etc. Most of our current injuries come from our dance lessons. We would expect this training to be completed in a 1-day session or 2 half-days.
Senior and Adult First Aid Course
We need someone to provide training and refresher course for our senior youth (aged 16 and over) together with adults to a more advanced level. It should also be a recognised qualification by an industry body.
This can either be arranged to take place at our site or we are happy to go to an off-site training facility. Our preference would be to run a course each year in-house for both first time training and refresher training. Again we are happy to take the lead from our future trainer as to the best way to arrange this training.
Training needs to cover the basics of first aid with a particular focus on soft muscle injuries. We also undertake a lot of canoeing and cycling trips. As such the additional training should cover injuries that can occur while undertaking these activities.
We would expect this training to be undertaken over a 2-day session or 4 half-days.
Training to take place just outside Newport, South Wales.
