Testimonial – Turton School

“We have been fortunate to work with Laura and the team at Fate Training this year as part of our Stop the Clock programme. Fate successfully delivered first aid training to 240 Year 9 students who now feel equipped to deal with emergency situations that they may come across in everyday life. The professional approach of Fate Training was evident from the first point of contact; clear lines of communication are set up which is imperative when co-ordinating such a large group of students. The friendly and flexible approach of the team meant that they were happy to tailor training to suit the needs of the cohort, this was particularly useful as we used it to complement our Duke of Edinburgh award scheme, giving the students the first aid awareness that they may need in an expedition. On the day, the delivery of the sessions was extremely professional, trainers were approachable and engaging, giving students excellent models to follow and encouraging all students to participate. The sessions were practical and informative. At the end of the day all students came away with a certificate and some happy memories.”
