200 Barton Peveril Sixth Form College students have completed their First Aid at Work course, as part of the College’s Q-XTRA programme. The course qualifies them for three years, providing them with all the skills to deliver life-saving First Aid.

The students study a range of subjects at Barton Peveril, selecting the course as part of their additional Q-XTRA programme.

The Q-XTRA programme at Barton Peveril encourages students to seek experiences that maintain their health, contribute to the community, develop their employability, and enhance their skills and interests.

Helping those in the community

Speaking on why she chose the course, student Natalie Haynes said:

“This course will help when I apply to study in the United States of America and it allows me to look after people in the community.”

Barton Peveril’s Vice Principal for Teaching and Learning, Mandy Wood, also commented on the course:

“We’re absolutely delighted that so many students have taken up this opportunity. It says a lot about Barton Peveril students and shows they have a strong sense of community and a genuine desire to help others.”
