Case Study – Oscar Bears Day Care

Oscar BearsAt FATE we pride ourselves on being flexible and responsive to our clients. On the 25th July 2015 and 1st August 2015 we ran a paediatric training course at Oscar Bear’s Day Care in Accrington. We ran the courses on Saturdays to make it as easy as possible for everyone to attend but with minimum disruption to the business. It was a great success and we would like to say thank you to everyone who was involved.


‘’The two-day Paediatric Course at our nursery was brilliant, thank you. Being able to run the course over two Saturdays ensured we could qualify the greatest number of staff at the same time without effecting the day to day running of the nursery. The girls attending were more than happy with everything. Thank you again, for providing the course! We will definitely be using FATE for all other first aid training we may need.’’
