Education and Life Skills
In Britain we too often focus on academic skills for young people, neglecting the life skills that many take for granted. Medical Experts believe that every child aged between 8 and 11 should be taught basic first aid, helping them to stay safe and save lives in emergency situations. First aid gives young people something amazing - the confidence to do the right thing when it really counts. We'll help you bring first aid training to your school in a way that works for you, so your pupils can learn this easy but essential skill. Our Approved First Aid Instructors can fit the 1-hour course in with school lessons and afterschool clubs.
We’ve always believed in backing local people and community organisations to make their communities stronger.

Effective Transition is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Safer recruitment is central to the way we work, and all staff and volunteers are expected to share our commitment to safeguarding, always creating an environment where young people feel safe and can thrive.
