Whether you are a School, ECE or Kōhanga Reo, First Aid is a must for your staff.

Recognising the significance of adhering to New Zealand’s first aid training regulations for schools, early childhood centres and kōhanga reo, Life Care Consultants is here to support your compliance journey. These regulations are in place to prioritise the safety and well-being of children and staff, emphasising the importance of adequate first aid readiness.

Compliance Requirements:
Starting Feb. 2024, a new update on the requirements from the Ministry of Education mandates that all ECEs’ persons responsible must attain first aid training from an NZQA-accredited provider. We are thrilled to share that Life Care boasts a longstanding NZQA Category 1 accreditation.

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

“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.”

Rosie Swinkels at Mt Maunganui 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

Thank you for Life Cares delivery to TGC students today. Both presenters were relational and lively and made the learning real-life for our students. Please pass on our compliments and we hope to have them back.

Ann Marie Wilson at Tauranga Girls' College

“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

“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!”
