The start of COVID-19 quickly brought face to face training to a close even before the lockdown was introduced. During this time we have developed new exciting ways to bring courses to businesses and individuals.
We have invested in a system that supports blended learning which allows us to host our learning online with practical sessions. The online learning allows for reading, interactive videos, quizzes, games and much more; allowing for people's different learning styles. The practical sessions can be hosted through virtual classrooms on Zoom or face to face when lockdown eases. This provides the opportunity for students to discuss their learning with the tutor and to put their learning into practice with other students.
In the future, this will give us more flexibility to meet your needs through blended learning, including:
learning from home while still supported by a tutor.
less time in the classroom.
more flexibility around shift patterns.
Watch this space as we rewrite our face to face learning into blended learning formats.
We have also been busy releasing free first aid learning for children who have been homeschooling during the lockdown.
As lockdown eases, we are starting to look at how we can restart face to face training which we will update you on in due course.
So take a look at the topics below for more information.
First Aid for children homeschooling
Free online lessons twice a week for children who are homeschooling during COVID-19
We have been releasing videos, information and activities for children to either do on their own or with their parents. The videos are aimed at Key Stage 3 and parents, with activities for Key Stage 1, 2 and 3. Take a look at our online resources and meet Teddy who is helping children practice their new knowledge.
As lockdown is lifted, we will come across more people and the potential of meeting someone who is injured. People are concerned about using their first aid skills due to the risk of catching COVID-19. We take a look at the recommendation from the Resuscitation Council on providing CPR during this time.
The theme set by the Mental Health Foundation for Mental Health Week 2020 was kindness.
When we do not believe in ourselves, we can experience anxiety in carrying out tasks and depression as we feel we are failing. These feelings can impact on mental and physical health. Acts of kindness can reverse these feelings as they make us feel good and release hormones that help with our health, healing and slow ageing.
We have launched our YouTube channel so we can host free education videos well into the future. We are currently hosting our videos for Homeschooling which are linked to our website for further information and activities. Watch this space for future free videos.
