 Testimonials for Basic First Aid in Schools

“From my initial telephone conversation to the actual practical sessions, working with Funky First Aid at Hungerford Primary School could not have been easier. Holly listened very carefully to our training needs and devised three training programmes that suited our requirements. She maintained a professional manner at all times and adjusted her delivery according to her audience whether it was Midday Assistants, Teachers or children in school. Her friendly and approachable attitude put everyone at ease from the start and she ensured that the delivery was well paced with a good balance of practical and theoretical activities. I would not hesitate in recommending Funky First Aid Training to others.”

"Holly and myself met up prior to the training of the 60 Year 11 Btec students. Holly wanted to know every detail about the course and the expectations that were required from her in terms of the delivery of what was required. Holly came back with a professional presentation of both theory and practical content which meant that every student who completed the training was accommodated for. The training that Holly did with the students also allowed us to complete Witness Statement sheets for the Btec course. Holly was very professional with the students, being polite and patient with them at all times. The handbook that Holly handed out has also been completed by every student and has been used as evidence of another task with the unit.

I would recommend Holly to any school looking for some up-to-date information on First Aid (as long as its not at the same time as I am getting her in)."

"I am happy to provide a testimonial for Funky First Aid.  In September 2009 the school bought into the services of Funky First Aid to delivered First Aid Training to all of our pupils in Year 9 on a 4 week cycle.  In addition, Holly provided training for BTEC students 14-16 and 16-19.   As a result of her input the pupils in 14-16 and 16-19 were able to demonstrate the highest levels of skills in their BTEC Sports and Public Services courses. The Year 9 students were taught critical skills, with reference to first aid which could be used both within and outside the school setting.
 Holly was completely reliable and always professionally prepared. She developed a positive relationship with students and achieved some very pleasing results. The feedback from students was positive and they appreciated the input that she made to their learning.
 I would recommend Holly without reservation. We were fortunate to have her skills over the last

"I recently used Funky First Aid for my school's first Aid training.  We used Funky First Aid to train our year 10 students on first aid in sport. Funky First Aid did an exceptional job and the pupils really responded well. FFA provided the pupils with an extensive resource pack that gave pupils information about first aid. The work that Funky First Aid did was specific to my requirements and allowed my students to pass some BTEC assessments. This was great for us to have a fully trained first aid assessor doing the work and sharing her expertise with the pupils. Holly spent time with me beforehand discussing our expectations and aims from the session and really tailored a great event for us and the pupils. Funky First Aid used practical examples that were easy to relate to and this was great for the pupils understanding. Would highly recommend the use of her company"
