Windsor Girls School Praise First Aid Training

13 Sep

As MD of Corporate Health I have a great sense of pride when one of our customers writes an article on what a great job our team have done. If you are thinking of booking a First Aid training course for your staff please read this reference, which is testament to the Training and support team.

“I don’t know how he did it, but that session was great fun and yet I have come away feeling so confident
about my first aid knowledge now. That was by far the best training in first aid I have ever had.”

“I have enjoyed working with Corporate Health and they have delivered exactly what I wanted and at an
affordable price. All the staff I have dealt with have been professional and a pleasure to work with. In May
2013 Windsor Girls’ School was inspected by Ofsted and was judged to be Outstanding. One area in
which schools are inspected is in the behaviour and safety of pupils so excellent first aid training is
essential to ensure appropriate care for students and staff alike: at Windsor Girls’ School we take this
responsibility very seriously. I am delighted to have met my original objective of establishing a good
working relationship with a local provider which has proved itself able to deliver excellent training at an
affordable price. I look forward to working with Corporate Health in the future”. Rachel Gibb – Assistant
Headteacher responsible for the behaviour and safety of students, and staff development and training
