Every 5 years the European Resuscitation Council (ERC), the Resuscitation Council (UK) and the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) review the latest research and evidence in resuscitation, and then release updated guidelines.  In addition to this, for the first time in history, this year the European Resuscitation Council (ERC) have also produced guidelines for first aid.

With these changes underpinning first aid practice, make sure that you click here for a summary of the changes and information about the next steps.
 

 

 

Qualsafe Awards is delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for the Federation of Awarding Bodies’ Awarding Organisation of the Year!

With the Federation of Awarding Bodies representing over 110 awarding organisations throughout the UK, we are incredibly proud to have been shortlisted for this fantastic award.  Over the last decade we have developed a thorough understanding of what training organisations want and need from an Awarding Organisation, which has helped us to develop a wide range of high quality qualifications to help our Centres succeed and Learners achieve.

With the winner due to be announced on 22nd October, we would like to thank our Centres for their continued support and we hope that we can continue to share our success with you in the future! 

 

 

We are pleased to announce that we will be attending this year’s Emergency Services show on 23rd-24th September, at the NEC Birmingham. With over 5,000 visitors last year, this iconic event is truly unmissable for those involved in emergency care.

Our leading industry experts will be there to discuss Qualsafe Awards’ new First Response Emergency Care (FREC) qualifications and meet with fellow professionals, so be sure to come and see us!

Did you know that guidance from the Health and Safety Executive and Skills for Health states that from 1st October 2015:

  • First Aid Trainers must hold a formal regulated teaching/training qualification
  • First Aid Assessors must hold a formal regulated assessing qualification or have attended the relevant CPD Training with an Awarding Organisation
  • First Aid Internal Quality Assurers must hold a formal internal quality assurer qualification or have attended the relevant CPD Training with an Awarding Organisation.

The guidance details the requirements of Trainers and Assessors separately. It is accepted, however, that both roles are normally performed by the same person, providing the qualifications for both roles are met.

To discuss these requirements with one of our dedicated Customer Relationship Executives, simply call 0845 644 3305 or email info@qualsafeawards.org today.

 

 

We are pleased to announce that we have now introduced two new food safety qualifications to our fantastic portfolio:

  • QA Level 2 Award in Food Safety for Retail (QCF)
  • QA Level 2 Award in Food Safety for Manufacturing (QCF)

QA Level 2 Award in Food Safety for Retail (QCF) – Designed to help Learners gain an understanding of the importance of keeping food products safe, this 6 hour qualification is ideal for people working, or planning to work, in a food retail environment, e.g. supermarkets, corner shops or premises with hot and chilled food display counters. It includes how individuals have a personal responsibility for food safety, such as, the importance of personal hygiene, keeping work areas clean and hygienic, food handling practices and keeping food products safe.

QA Level 2 Award in Food Safety for Manufacturing (QCF) - This 6 hour qualification has been specifically designed for those who work, or intend to work, in a food manufacturing environment, such as, food production operatives who wish to develop their food safety awareness. It covers key aspects of food safety, including the importance of personal hygiene, keeping work areas clean and hygienic, food handling practices and keeping food products safe.

If you would like further information on the above qualifications, please contact Qualsafe Awards on 0845 644 3305 or email us at: info@qualsafeawards.org.

Did you know that guidance from the Health and Safety Executive and Skills for Health states that from 1st October 2015 all those who assess or quality assure first aid qualifications must hold a formal qualification?

However, regulated first aid qualifications follow the Skills for Health First Aid Assessment Principles, which provide an option for those who don’t hold formal assessing or internal quality assurance qualifications to attend a Continual Professional Development (CPD) training day instead.

Here at Qualsafe Awards we are dedicated to providing the best possible support for our Centres, and as such we are delighted to offer our 1 day CPD event which will cover all the information needed to successfully assess and quality assure regulated first aid qualifications.

Delegates who successfully complete this CPD training day will receive a certificate that is accepted by all Awarding Organisations, making it the ideal solution for those who only assess or quality assure first aid qualifications and a great alternative to completing a longer formal qualification.

What’s more, all attendees will receive 7 CPD points for their attendance and will benefit from the opportunity to network with Qualsafe Awards experts as well as other training organisations.

With our CPD Days being held regularly throughout the UK, please call 0845 644 3305 today to book your place or to find out more information!
