Core Teaching Solutions

We provide face to face / contact training sessions , blended courses that are a mixture of online element (theory) and practical element with instructor (practical), we also can provide online courses as well. Go onto our website for links or better still contact us on email or phone so we can chat to you about the courses in simple language and put you at ease that you are doing the correct one.


The only courses face to face in 2021 are the Paediatric First Aid (PFA) level 3 , First Aid at Work (FAW) and Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) level 3 courses , and the Moving and Positioning of People (Healthcare) courses. These are the only courses that require a practical element and assessment as defined by HSE (Health and Safety Executive), OFSTED and CQC.  These courses are now done with us, as a "Blended" course , which reduces the amount of time with the iinstructor so is far safer from a covid 19 point of view. For the "Blended" course, half of it is now done online by the student which is the theory part of the course, in their own time and at their own pace . They then do the reduced practical element with the instructor face to face. The two parts together then become the level 3 qualification. At present the Blended practical elements are reduced to:

PFA one day

EFAW half day (morning)

FAW  two day

FAW REQ  one day

Most other courses can be done online or remotely.With Covid 19 / Corona virus restrictions we can offer over 220 online courses that people can do in their own homes. Go onto our website :  to see all the online courses. There is also a 10% discount offered by booking through our website.

Our Paediatric First Aid level 3 Courses for Childminders and Nannies are a "Blend" option of video based online e-learning and 6 hours with an instructor. This course meets the standards required by Ofsted, SureStart and the Pre-School learning alliance among others. It also means you only spend one day with the instructor, not two, which saves time and money.

We appreciate that it is very difficult for Childminders and Nannies to attend the Paediatric and Childcare first aid courses on week days, so we offer both a Friday and a Saturday each month for their blended courses practical day.
