  • Reference from Kati Alcock HR Manager of Seymour House Day Nursery Schools:
    “Seymour House Day Nursery Schools have worked closely with EndeavourUK over the past 5 months, in order to ensure that our nursery practitioners are fully qualified in First Aid. We wanted to ensure that as a nursery chain we far exceeded the minimum legal requirements for numbers of qualified First Aiders in the workplace, by aiming for a 100% qualified team.
    The whole experience of working together with EndeavourUK has been seamless, from liaising with Chris when planning the dates, through to the flexibility of the trainer coming to our various locations to provide the training in-house.
    All the training was facilitated by the tutor in a very professional manner and to a high standard, and our staff felt the content was very valuable and relevant to them. I will not hesitate to use Endeavour UK again for any of our First Aid training needs.

  • Reference from Natasha Taylor MONT.DIP Principal of Buttercup Montessori Kindergarten:
    “Paediatric First Aid trained staff is essential within a nursery environment however to implement this can prove to be a costly process. EndeavourUK has enabled Buttercup Montessori Kindergarten to double our qualified trained staff from 8 to 16 staff members by offering a discounted 2-day training course delivered in an interesting and professional way. I would not hesitate to highly recommend EndeavourUK” 

  • Reference from Mrs Mickey Venton, Administration at Newlands Spring Pre-School:
    “I just wanted to write to thank you for the Paediatric First Aid Training course that we booked with you. The staff thoroughly enjoyed this course, and they were extremely happy with not only the course content, but also the flexibility of the trainer, who was happy to spend more time on subjects which the staff needed extra clarification on. They felt he made the course interesting, and also appreciated that they had a relatively high level of experience, and geared the course accordingly.
    On the administration side, it was a pleasure to deal with you, as from my first point of contact with yourself, the information provided and the course booking couldn’t have been easier. We would have no hesitation in recommending EndeavourUK to other Pre-Schools.”
