Students Trained

Our seasoned trainers bring a wealth of experience to create engaging and effective learning experiences for students and school staff alike.


Schools & ECEs

Life Care is proud to have already trained a substantial number of educators, contributing to the safety and well-being of our young learners. Our training programmes are crafted with precision, catering specifically to the needs of Schools and ECE centres.


“On another note, I would just like to say how great your facilitator Keighley Wishart was on this week’s course. Students and staff thoroughly enjoyed the day and were very complementary of her teaching. Keighley was lovely and connected well with the students.”

Rachel Palmer at Taupo-nui-a-Tia College

“Our staff found the Life Care first aid training to be enjoyable and thorough. The initial online work was a very effective way to begin the training. We appreciated the straight forward, practical delivery. Time passed quickly because we were learning a lot of information through activities that were engaging and interesting. The trainer was professional and friendly. He facilitated a very beneficial day for us all. Ultimately, we felt a lot more equipped to deal with first aid situations. We will definitely use Life Care again for future first aid training.”

Clifford Wicks at Otari School, Wellington

“Everything runs smoothly – from making the booking to the completion of the course and reporting of results – nothing is too much trouble and students enjoy the courses.”

Raewyn Moore at Massey High School, Auckland

“Great organisation – easy to enrol students. Course content was excellent and well delivered. I particularly appreciate the Health & Safety training combinations (packages) available for delivery in schools – this is a great option to have.’”

Sonya Fitzgerald at Villa Maria College, Christchurch

“Very well organised, good training educators, well run courses, timely results. Absolutely, I would recommend Life Care Consultants to others.”

Jane Thomas at Morrinsville College, Waikato

“When you book a Health and Safety course for your Gateway students you are aiming for the students to connect with the tutor. You want them to feel they can ask questions and gain as much knowledge as possible because you want each and every one of them to be safe out in the workplace. Alan listened to my students and created a great learning environment , which I could tell by the way the students were working each time I popped in. [x 3 visits each day ] Thanks, I will rebook with this company because of you and the effort you made at Trident last week.”

Karen Benge at Trident High School Bay of Plenty

“The course was upbeat and relevant. All of my students walked out of the course feeling confident in their ability. They were not afraid to ask questions and … got some great credits too. I found it super easy to deal with Life Consultants as a busy teacher – all of the pre course information was easy to understand and run my students through. The facilitator was wonderful as well – very upbeat and made a relationship with every single student – was super cool to see!”

Charlie Harrison at Aquinas College Tauranga

“Brooke and Lynette are lovely to work with, and great ambassadors of Life Care Consultants.  Course one went well today, and we do it again tomorrow with the other Gateway class. Many thanks from a very happy client.”
