We are building links with local universities and we have been lucky enough to be offered 3 sessions at The University of Manchester Nursing Department, covering aspects of First Aid.

Students will be split into 2 groups, and will be attending on either a Wednesday or a Thursday.  Your child will be attending every Wednesday / Thursday for 3 consecutive weeks, starting the week beginning Monday 10th June 2019.
