Certificates were presented to students on a West Suffolk College Pathways to Employment programme in Haverhill who successfully completed First Aid training.

Community Action Suffolk, which funded the course, teamed up with ONE Haverhill Youth Skills Manager Karen Chapple to offer the qualification to Haverhill youngsters on the programme to participate and gain the qualification.

The course was run at the MENTA Business Centre in Haverhill and attended by Carlie Benge, Lee Petchey, Daniel Ring, Michael Clark, James Jameson and Marie Parker.

Lee said: “The training was really interesting. I had no idea there was so much involved in First Aid.

“I am very pleased to have successfully completed the course – it is a real achievement.”

Pathways to Employment Coordinator Nick Stevens said: “This qualification has not only built up the students’ CVs but also given them a recognised qualification that employers look for.

“The students thoroughly enjoyed the session and found it very rewarding and informative.”

Pathways to Employment is a course run by West Suffolk College to help young people (aged 16 to 24) who would like to make progress into Employment, Apprenticeships or Further Training.
