Active IQ and RLSS UK have worked in partnership for two years, in which time RLSS UK has seen its workforce of trainers gain in confidence and skill.  Both the RLSS UK and its trading subsidiary IQL UK use Active IQ’s Level 3 Award in Education and Training to meet the requirements needed by Trainer Assessors to deliver the RLSS UK First Aid suite of qualifications. 

High standards of training at the RLSS UK couldn’t be more important. As the Drowning Prevention Charity, it is the UK’s leading provider of water safety and drowning prevention education. Around 400 people die needlessly from drowning in the UK every year with thousands more suffering injury. When put into context, one person loses their life through drowning every 20 hours. Furthermore, drowning is a leading cause of accidental death of children in the UK.

RLSS UK boasts a strong force of loyal members and volunteers who work tirelessly to promote water safety and Active IQ’s support of its trainers is highly valued.

“Through our partnership with Active IQ, RLSS UK benefits by allowing a greater provision of First Aid qualifications to be delivered,” says Director of IQL UK and Water Safety Management, Martin Symcox.

“This enhances our position in this marketplace and provides additional training opportunities for our workforce. RLSS UK seeks to provide lifesaving skills to as many people as possible and therefore, by having more First Aid trainers able to deliver, we can meet this target.

The Active IQ Level 3 Award in Education and Training qualification gives our trainers skills and confidence to deliver our First Aid suite of qualifications and chose Active IQ as they were able to tailor their approach to meet our specific needs, they provide excellent customer service and are also competitive on price,” he added.

“Our Professional Career Development service sets out to build the skills of trainers so they can deliver training with confidence,” says Jenny Patrickson, Active IQ managing director.  “It is a privilege to be working with the RLSS UK and supporting their vital, lifesaving work. Training their trainers is very rewarding as is knowing our partnership is helping them train more people more effectively.”
