First Aid: Responding to Illness & Injury Nairobi, Kenya

Do you have responsibility for caring for children? Join us to develop the confidence and practical skills to appropriately respond to common childhood injuries and illnesses which occur on the field: 18 - 19 Nov 2013.

Approach to training

Our international training programme is built around two central pillars that, we believe, should stand side by side.

Professional & Clinical experience

Our training programme is rooted in over two decades of professional and clinical experience and listening to the concerns of relief, development and charity workers, government employees and mission partners. This has deepened our understanding and given us a unique insight into what different staff groups need to effectively support their health and wellbeing.

Evidence based approach

Alongside our accumulation of insight and understanding, we endeavour to base our training programme on the very latest research, so that what we teach is backed up by solid evidence. We are dedicated to following current best practice in our respective fields and where there is debate we aim to include consideration of the issues to support people to be as well informed as possible.

Training style

We understand that different people like to learn in different ways. We draw on a variety of methodologies in order to cater for the broadest possible range of learning styles.


Our philosophy is that participants will learn almost as much from each other as they will from us. As a result, we create as much time as possible for participants to share their insights & learn together, as well as engaging with the material presented.


Alongside an introduction to the relevant theories, we want to leave participants feeling confident that they can use what they have learned. Wherever possible, we design our courses and workshops to include hands-on role-play, creative exercises, tools, strategies and action points to take back into their workplace.


Tools and strategies mean little if they are not underpinned by a sound awareness of the basic theories. We ensure that all of our courses offer solid introductions to the relevant clinical concepts, organisational principles and with reference to legal frameworks.

Methodologies & Formats

We incorporate the full spectrum of learning activities, including role-play, round table, scenario work, video clips, skills demonstrations and lectures. Our training events are offered in a variety of different formats, including one to three day workshops, breakfast seminars, round table discussions and master classes.
