We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve been chosen as the preferred supplier for the First Aid Training Framework for North Ayrshire, East Ayrshire and South Ayrshire Councils. Over the next 3 years, Amalgamate will be providing a full array of first aid courses to council employees, including First Aid at Work, Emergency First at Work, AED (Defibrillator) Training, and specialised courses for dealing with children and elderly people.

Since our creation in 2011, we’ve benefited significantly from the support provided by North Ayrshire Council and their Economic Development Team, specifically Steven Rieley as their Economic Development Officer. This has included support provided as a fledgling business through the growth programme, access to funding and advice for marketing and IT development, and leadership training for our senior team.

Our Director Allan MacDonald is delighted with the win, and commented “This framework is a great step for us, and we’re excited to be working in partnership with all of the Local Authorities to provide this training. The whole tender team including Kiri Goss, Annette Armstrong and Stuart Watt put in a massive amount of effort to win this fantastic opportunity and we are delighted that our hard work is definitely paying off!

It’s a great opportunity for us to share the knowledge and skills that our expert trainers have; and make sure that if council staff are faced with an accident or a sudden illness, they’ll feel confident that they know what to do to help, and can maybe save a life. What could be more rewarding than that?”

We provide first aid training to many different types of business, and can deliver at your premises or at our offices. If you’d like to learn more about our First Aid courses, read more here, or contact us at info@amalgamate-safety.com or on 0141 244 0181.
