What we do at Berkshire Youth charity

Berkshire Youth believes that every young person should have access to opportunities to develop skills and raise their aspirations. With local authority funding greatly reduced and activities for young people being lost as a direct result, it is more important than ever to invest in personal development opportunities for staff and young people.

This is an accredited first aid course for the workplace. It is the basic requirement for nominated first aiders. To complete the course, students must successfully complete all of the practical assessments. Assessments are ongoing and carried out by the trainer. A three-year EFAW qualification will be issued to those participants who satisfy all of the assessment criteria.

Time – 9am – 4pm (includes teaching time and breaks)

Age – 14+ (NB: A student cannot assume a responsibility in the workplace until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the student is suitable for that role.)

It is recommended that all regular volunteers and paid staff over 18 attend this course.
