Changes to First Aid Training Exam

Due to feedback from clients, delegates and trainers Stewart First Aid Training now plan to assess delegates as they go through their first aid training courses.This will be carried out using  both formative and summative assessments each day to ensure that the delegates thoroughly understand the topics being covered as they are covered.

Who Monitors Us?

We have a robust internal verification system for measuring learning by the delegates, and our processes are extrenally verified by  Scottish Qualification Authority (SQA) and OfQual registered ITC. 

Stewart First Aid Training is also First Aid Industry Body (FAIB) registered and externally monitored by them. The First Aid Industry Body will take over from where the HSE have left off in terms of monitoring of processes and procedures to assure standards.

Who else uses On-going Assessment?

As of the 1st of October 13 when the HSE changes were implemented surrounding First Aid at Work credentials, many other first aid training companies including the Voluntary Associations (The British Red Cross, St Andrews Ambulance and St Johns Ambulance) decided to adopt ongoing assessment as a better and more effective method of the assessment of delegates. It has taken careful consideration and planning to ensure that we at Stewart First Aid Training adopt a system that is totally robust and quality assured.

Our Responsibility

Every trainer who works for Stewart First Aid Training knows and fully understands the responsibility that they have and that we have as a company to ensure that delegates who leave our courses understand fully both the importance of the roll of first aider within the workplace and also have the skills and techniques required to save life and treat illness and injury.
