Scotland - Ian Alderman
I have been involved in first aid for 20 years. I have worked for the British Red Cross and was a British Army Combat Medic attached to specialist units of the Army and the Royal Navy. During my time in the army I worked at the Officer Training Academy at Sandhurst and also helped to train pre-deployment soldiers. Since leaving the army, I have been an operational Firefighter with, what was Strathclyde Fire and Rescue, now the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service as well as an Area Co-ordinator (and First Responder) for the Scottish Ambulance Service which involved overseeing training and development of ambulance service staff. Currently I am the Chief Internal Quality Assurer (IQA) of The National School of First Aid Training.
The National School of First Aid Training
The National School of First Aid Training is an established and specialist first aid training organisation, supporting large and small businesses, local authorities/government, charities and individuals throughout the UK.
Both myself and the NSFAT passionately support Millie’s Trust in their aim to make lifesaving first aid training accessible to everyone.
As well as this, we fully support Millie’s Trust in their determination to have UK legislation updated to ensure that all people who work with children have appropriate first aid training (and formal qualifications) so that they can respond quickly and appropriately should the unthinkable happen.
We are proud to be associated with Millie’s Trust and are personally determined to ensure both the standards and aspirations of Millie’s Trust are promoted and upheld at every level and opportunity.
