I'm a nanny in south Manchester and due to my youngest charge starting full time pre school in September, I'm out of a job sad
Started getting my ducks in a row and signing up with agencies etc, couldn't find my first aid cert and called them, turns out it expired two months ago (PANIC!!!)
I'm in the middle of moving house and can't afford the £120 I've been quoted by various organisations as my insurance is due at the end of this month too!
Any suggestions or vague possibilities I can investigate would be appreciated as I have to get it sorted ASAP!

If you are anywhere near Hitchin, DJB training do it for £35... prob still worth travelling to even adding in some fuel!

Just realised you are in Manchester sad
Can you contact your local learning and development council and see what they can offer?

Depends if your looking for full peads course or the shorter baby and child lifesaver course.

Tigerlily do a 6 hour intensive course for nannies and have a course in Manchester (M1 5LE) on 9th June. £85 (this course has an on-line assessment element which is completed after the 6 hours at the venue).

Their 12 hour course version (6 hours practical plus 6 hours e-learning) is also running at a cost of £115.
I think if you decide to book the £85 course and then want to do the extra e-learning, you can pay the topup fee when going on-line to complete the assessment.

Not a lot cheaper but may be handy as you need a course quickly.

Hmm I think you generally need the 12 hr course ( may have gone down to 10 hr), but that's if you need it for ofstead.

Thank you!! Hopefully I'll get it sorted asap!

Nannies don't need a 12 hour for OFSTED - tigerlily's 6 hour one is fine.

I used them...very light-hearted & fun, didn't make you stand out as an individual. Highly recommended.

Unsure if you are still looking but I recently heard about a first aid course in Manchester run by an agency I used to belong to. Really good price for a first aid course - here is their link...
