Meditrain Limited’s experience within the education sector dates back to the early 1980s.
Before establishing her training company, founder Josette Bailly’s interest in this field was influenced by her duties as a school’s qualified first aider and matron. These roles gave her first-hand understanding of a school’s responsibility towards its pupils, and the training required to care for them in a safe environment.
Today, while schools may undertake their own risk assessment, Meditrain can relieve them of this responsibility and explain the benefits of appropriate courses. It will also provide the requisite training to ensure compliance with governing bodies. These authorities are responsible for inspecting all services caring for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
At nursery level, Meditrain runs a two-day paediatric course for those looking after small children. This extended course covers conditions from which small children can deteriorate more quickly than adults. There is also a shorter one-day course.
In high schools, colleges and universities, staff can learn, for example, how to deal with life-threatening conditions and use a defibrillator. Meditrain’s training courses will also help college students working towards a diploma in health and social care. A course ideal for dental schools is the emergency first aid at work syllabus, dealing with allergic reactions and potentially life-threatening conditions such as anaphylaxis.
Education establishments are regulated by Ofsted. As a training centre, Meditrain assesses and provides whatever is required for anyone working within the education sector, and can tailor a course or syllabus to suit specific needs.
