Teach Health education courses delivered by highly experienced Registered Nurses.

TEACH specialises in providing essential health education courses and training for all staff in schools, colleges, and childcare settings. Our goal is to empower staff to teach and manage pupils effectively, regardless of their healthcare needs.

Our programmes cover the most commonly encountered and sensitive areas of child health that teaching staff, and the organisations they work for, will need to address in the workplace.

All our courses are delivered by highly experienced NMC Registered Nurses. To ensure the highest standards are met, our courses use evidence-based content and reflect best clinical practices established on up-to-date research. They also adhere to OFSTED, EYFS, NICE, and ESNA guidelines and requirements as necessary.

Our education programs simply and clearly explain important, universal health-related conditions and the effects a condition may have on a child’s education and care. We cover the vital aspect of how to administer emergency medication if necessary. Each course includes risk management, health and safety factors, and a full awareness of your legal responsibilities.

At TEACH, we aim to leave you confident that you are providing the best possible support for those you employ and, in turn, those in your care.

“Thank you for the enjoyable First Aid at Work for Schools program. I liked how information was always linked back to the body & how the body works. We were made to feel at ease and made to feel valued for our contribution”

“I really and truly enjoyed the course. It was very informative and Anna was fantastic. She made all the explanations clear and accessible so everyone understood what she was talking about”

“Our tutor was really enthusiastic, inclusive, encouraged us to ask any questions and was extremely knowledgeable. You learn something new everyday and I definitely did today”

“Excellent. We were all given the chance to raise questions and queries that we had. An excellent course. Very informative. Plenty of ‘hands on’ and the day went very quickly because of this.”

“This First Aid course was absolutely fantastic. Well presented – super friendly tutor. Information delivered very well with humour and great examples.”

“Excellent tutor. Happy to answer any questions. I enjoyed how she taught and engaged everyone. Anna is an extremely competent trainer that made the day flow effortlessly.”

“The tutor made this course interesting. Really good session and broadened my knowledge about epilepsy. I found the course very informative and to the point. The length was just right. The whole day was enjoyable. Student participation was very good. Anna is a very good and well prepared tutor. Thank you Anna!”

“Everything was very interesting and well explained in a lovely friendly manner. Easy to understand when to administer EpiPen. Interactive games and role play made it fun learning and easy to absorb information. The way Sue and Anna put things and their whole manner made the learning easier. All aspects were at a very high standard.”

Michelle and Anna are excellent. Good pace with different things to break up the day. Enjoyed listening to past experiences/stories from tutors. I felt my questions were accepted and I was made to feel valued. Found out a lot more information than I even knew existed.

The course was very personal and people spoke of their own experiences. Encouraged to ask questions and comfortable to do so. Overall a great course to attend. Well-paced session.”
