Great Ormond Street First Aid Training Partnership

Company News, HR & Training
The Axis Academy has announced a partnership which will provide training courses to members of the Great Ormond Street Hospital's (GOSH) Young People's Forum.

The Axis Academy, a new dedicated learning and development resource, is working with Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), to deliver First Aid training courses to its Young People’s Forum (YPF).


The YPF was set up for patients, ex-patients and siblings of patients who have been looked after at GOSH and a number of other hospitals around the UK, including Birmingham Children’s Hospital. It is designed for 11 to 25 year olds who want to have fun, meet new people and learn new skills, with one of the skills on offer this year a First Aid / CPR course delivered by the Axis Academy.


The first training session took place on Saturday 14th October and was developed by the dedicated training team at The Axis Academy, and is one of many regulated courses whicht are now being offered to Axis Group’s clients and any business looking to support staff learning and development.


Duaine Taylor, Head of Learning and Development at the Axis Academy, says he is extremely pleased to be supporting GOSH and its YPF:

“The YPF aims to further the enjoyment and skills of young people connected to GOSH and many other children's hospitals throughout the UK, and we are very pleased to have been chosen to help with this worthwhile cause.

“The day was a great success with approximately 80 children from all over the UK in attendance, and was jam-packed with presentations and talks. Attendees were split into smaller groups and divided between the sessions, and all walked away with a certificate in recognition of their new skill.”


The Axis Academy is already helping to develop the careers of Axis Security, Acuity and Axis Cleaning and Support Services employees by delivering an extensive range of courses. In partnering with GOSH it is furthering its goal to offer services to clients, third-party providers and private individuals.


In addition to First Aid, other courses provided by the Axis Academy are categorised under the fundamentals of Customer Service, Fire Safety, Health and Safety, Security, and Supervisor and Management courses. More sector-specific courses are tailored within each of these categories, for example Control and Restraint and Food Hygiene. The most recent course added to the Academy's repertoire is a Citizens Aid First Aid course which provides training for scenarios where there are mass casualties and knife injuries and has recently been accredited by the Qualsafe Awards.
