I am a senior Technician working on frontline ambulances, responding to 999 calls from the public. I have worked as both a solo responder and as part of an ambulance crew for over 17 years. I also have experience of providing first aid cover at private functions and public events. Using this experience I have branched out into teaching First Aid.
I feel that the knowledge and experience I have gained is invaluable and I am very enthusiastic about passing on these vital skills to my students. I have completed my level 3 qualification in Education and Training. I am continually seeking new opportunities to expand my teaching portfolio. I am very proud to annouce that that I recently completed my Mental Health Instructors course which I am very passionate about as this is a very underestimated illness.
I have been working as a Paramedic on frontline ambulances for the past 8 years after previously working the the ambulance control room. I have supported many newer members of staff and gained a qualification in mentorship. I have also learned and developed skills in minor injuries and illnesses. These extra skills and knowledge of the organisation of frontline emergency services will help me provide a rounded knowledge of first aid assessment and treatment.
I am always looking to increase my portfolio, this includs studying at Univeristy and I have recently qualified as an Advanced Clinical Practitioner, which has boosted my medical knowledge significantly and I am now able to pass on that knowledge to others.

I did my first junior first aid course nearly 30 years ago and began teaching first aid approximately 26 years ago.
Following this I decided to train as a Paramedic with the West Midlands Ambulance Service in which I have over 20 years experience. I have held many roles within the service but my proudest moment has been appointed Clinical Team Mentor, this role is very important in helping train the new paramedics of the future in achieving the advanced skills and knowledge required.
I enjoy teaching and making my sessions fun and light hearted making the students feel relaxed and engaged.
I have been involved in community projects over the past few years setting up defibrillator schemes in the community and training the public in basic life support and AED's. Current projects include teaching school children basic first aid and working with the local police. I am looking forward to helping the company grow from strength to strength and I’m very Passionate about delivering Perfection.
