Blended Learning is a new and innovative learning method that offers the best of both worlds.

Providing greater flexibility and reduced need for in-person interaction, you can now experience Blended Learning
 on our First Aid at Work – Initial (3 days) (open and on-site courses) and First Aid at Work – Requalification (2 days) (on-site courses).

 

This new method increases flexibility for both employer and learner. 
Learners can complete their e-learning at their own pace, anywhere that has an internet connection. This means that regardless of your industry, type of role, and current work-life balance, learners can access the content at a time and place to suit your needs.

How does it work

Part 1: Online e-learning

 

 

 

 



 

 

Part 2: Classroom Training and Assessment

For this portion of your course, will be attend your venue or you may wish to attend our training venue for the classroom-based training part where one of our expert first aid trainers will provide you with the practical skills to support your new theoretical knowledge.

 

This is also a great opportunity to recap your learning so far and discuss with your trainer 
anything you’re uncertain or curious about prior to final assessments. 

Blended Learning offers the best of both worlds for first aid training.

The practical skills and associated assessments are still conducted by our highly experienced instructors in the classroom environment.

This gives learners valuable, confidence-building feedback and lots of ’hands-on experience’ with training equipment.

Please note: online training must be completed before attending classroom-based training.  

How will I be assessed

There will be several opportunities for you to test your knowledge throughout your course. 

During the online learning section, you will be completing immersive activities  throughout to ensure full understanding of each module.

In the classroom-based sessions, your practical demonstrations  will be observed and assessed for competence and best practice.

Finally, you will be assessed on the final day to evaluate all that you have learned and ensure you leave a competent and confident first aider.

In order to gain your Ofqual regulated qualification you must complete all parts of the course.

Successful learners will receive a Qualsafe Awards Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (RQF) certificate with a three year qualification.

Frequently asked questions

Blended Learning

What is Blended Learning?


A course that contains both an online e-learning element and sessions delivered face-to-face in a classroom.




Do the HSE allow Blended Learning for First Aid at Work training?


Yes. HSE guidance on Selecting a First Aid Training Provider (section 24) has been updated to include provision for a ‘Blended Learning’ approach. Furthermore, specific guidance has been agreed by the First Aid Quality Partnership (an industry body set up by the HSE to agree standards and best practice). Details of these standards can be found here.




What are the advantages of this type of training?


Blended Learning offers the best of both worlds for first aid training. The practical skills and associated assessments are still conducted by our highly experienced instructors in the classroom environment. This gives learners valuable, confidence-building feedback and lots of ’hands-on experience’ with training equipment. For theoretical subjects, the highly engaging and informative e-learning element helps learners to understand sometimes tricky medical concepts at a pace that suits them. Before moving on to the next subject each section is consolidated with relevant questions and exercises to ensure maximum understanding. Another big advantage is the increased flexibility that e-learning offers. This allows study to take place at convenient times and can reduce the number of consecutive days away from the workplace.




How long does the e-learning element take to complete?


The e-learning element takes approximately 6 hours to complete. This can be achieved over several sessions as the learning progress is always saved. When a learner returns they will continue at the point they left.




How do I access the e-learning?


An email detailing how to access the e-learning and information on starting the online element of the course will be sent shortly after a booking is made (please let us know if you do not receive this email within 24 hours).




What are the I.T. requirements?


Access to the internet is required via a reliable/stable connection. Please ensure that you use a device which plays audio and video and has a browser that is not out of date or unsupported.




Must I complete the e-learning element before my classroom course?


Yes. The e-learning must be completed in full before attending the classroom training dates. If the learner fails to complete the e-learning element they will be unable to attend the classroom dates.




Can I transfer to a different classroom training date?


One transfer is permitted to an alternative classroom training session (subject to availability). This option is however only possible where at least 10 working days’ notice is given before the classroom training and the maximum time allowed to achieve the qualification has not been exceeded.




Will I still receive an Ofqual regulated certificate?


Yes. All our 'Blended' First Aid courses lead to Ofqual Regulated Qualifications (Level 3 RQF).




Who do I contact if I have any technical problems?


Should you have any difficulties, our friendly customer support team will be happy to help. Please call us on freephone 0800 0699931 or email info@sussexfirstaidcourses.co.uk.
