The Training Tree Group Is based in Brighton, East Sussex, delivering Baby & Child First Aid courses to parents, grandparents, babysitters and childcare professionals.
Hi, my name is Rachel, I set up The Training Tree Group after working for 16 years as a childcare professional in Brighton and realising how many of the families I worked with had little or no first aid experience, it seemed crazy that to work with children you needed to be a certified paediatric first aider and update it every 3 years but there were no first aid courses out there for parents or grandparents to learn these invaluable skills.
With the cost of nursery care rising, it seems more and more parents who are returning to work are choosing to use family members as their childcare support network so I believe its important that grandparents, aunties etc are up to date with their first aid and ready to act with the skills and knowledge needed should an incident arise.
As an Ofqual approved first aid instructor and assessor I am passionate about passing on my knowledge of Paediatric First Aid and believe that this should be accessible to all.
My goal is to develop both the skills and confidence in each of my learners to be able to effectively deal with the first aid emergencies that may arise from looking after little ones
