    information being circulated particularly on Linked In and Facebook some of which is not factually correct On Linked In there are pages for Ian Kershaw FOFATO and FAIB We have also created a new group called First Aid Industry Body and we would like our Training Providers and Trainers to register with this group We can then pass on information through this forum that is not only correct but relevant to FAIB We have also created Facebook pages for FAIB and FOFATO but unfortunately information has been put onto these forums from non FAIB and FOFATO Training Providers that is not factually correct we ask our Training Providers to contribute with correct and relevant information Please help us to get our views across the First Aid Industry Links to FOFATO website We have now started to put links onto our FOFATO website for those that have requested us to do so In return we ask that you put a link to our website Training Providers can put a description of their Organisation and a link to their website Again if any other Training Providers wish us to add links please let us know giving us details of your website Payment of FOFATO Annual Subscriptions We have been asked by a number of Training Providers if the FOFATO annual payment can be made by standing order This facility is available and would again save us valuable time Please let us know if you wish to pay by this method 28 Day Extension Rule You are all aware that under HSE there was a period of 28 days beyond the expiry of the First Aid at Work FAW certificate where Students were still allowed to attend a 2 day FAW requalification course We have been receiving a lot of enquiries about this subject Please be aware that FAIB has continued this 28 day rule but has also given some discretion so that the Training Providers can make the final decision themselves Ofqual and the QCF Ofqual has announced that vocational qualifications will no longer need to meet the Qualifications and Credit Framework QCF rules in order to be eligible for Public Funding An article written by Professor Alison Wolf who is an adviser to the Government has written an article which is very interesting reading particularly in relation to the Ofqual system Professor Wolf writes The job of Awarding Bodies under QCF rules is largely to determine whether candidates have ticked every box They have no capacity to innovate They also have no incentive to demand high quality instead it becomes logical and tempting to compete by cutting costs and making it easier and more straightforward for candidates to pass an award We have written to Professor Wolf in relation to the problems that we have had with Ministers and HSE and are hoping to have a meeting with her The Skills Funding Agency A number of our Registered Training Providers have contacted us regarding the issues surrounding funding and particularly in the way that it is linked to Ofqual system We have held a meeting with Kirsty Evans the Deputy Director Funding Policy Implementation for the Skills Funding Agency SFA on Friday 6th March 2015 minutes available upon request It was a useful meeting in terms of obtaining the information we required The SFA confirmed that it would not usually approve funding for provision that was part of an Employers statutory responsibility However the SFA confirmed in 2013 that following Ministerial agreement that a certain number of qualifications in fork lift truck food hygiene health and safety and first aid at work would be funded on the basis that they could support unemployed learners into work However as suspected it was confirmed the SQA does not have any contractual relationship with Awarding Organisations but that it was Government Policy that where qualifications are offered to learners they must be regulated qualifications offered by an Ofqual recognised Awarding Organisation We understand that SFA can do nothing further but we do intend to take this to next level and the SFA indicated for us to contact Vince Cable or Nick Boles Minister for Skills which of course we will do We will keep you informed of any progress The FOFATO Shop The FOFATO shop has been off line for a period of time because we have created a new and better website You will be pleased to know that it will be back on line in the very near future We will sell the main products that you require and have bought from FOFATO over the past 8 years including First Aid Training Products like Mannikins Students Packs Books and Trainer Defibrillator units and products for your clients like Defibrillators and First Aid kits We have always attempted to sell our products at the best prices on the market but the more Training Providers that buy our products means we are able to negotiate better prices with the suppliers and consequently give you even better prices In the meantime if there are any products you require for you or your clients just let us know FOFATO Insurance FOFATO have offered Insurance to Training Providers and Trainers over the past 8 years at very competitive rates and a good number of Training Providers and Trainers have joined our scheme We have always aimed at providing the best cover at the right price We also offer the option of paying monthly as long a the annual policy is over 200 Please contact Daryl Smith on 0800 458 3301 for a quote or any further information or simply click the link on the front page of the FOFATO website Thank You Finally I wish once again to thank all Training Providers who have registered with FOFATO over the last 8 years and hope that you will do so in future years If there is anything more you want to see from FOFATO do not hesitate to speak to me directly Ian Kershaw MBE The Federation of First Aid Training Organisations FOFATO FAIB IN DISCUSSIONS WITH THE FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION Posted on February 17 2015 April 24 2015 by Ian Kershaw FOFATO FAIB are currently in discussions with the Football Association regarding the content of the Football Association Bridging Document Further news on this matter will be posted as soon as available FOFATO MEMBERS CHRISTMAS NEWSLETTER NO 3 DECEMBER 2014 Posted on January 14 2015 April 24 2015 by Ian Kershaw FEDERATION OF FIRST AID TRAINING ORGANISATIONS FOFATO NEWSLETTER 3 DECEMBER 2014 Dear Training Provider Firstly I would like to wish our Registered Training Providers a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year The interest in FOFATO and the First Aid Industry Body FAIB is becoming bigger and better We are seeing the number of Training Providers who are joining FOFATO is increasing We know that the name of FOFATO is spreading quickly from Employer to Employer as a consequence of the link with FAIB We know that the key to our success will be listening to and communicating with all our Training Providers on a regular basis The FAIB FOFATO National Trainer Assessor Register and Professional Code of Conduct We are also now getting much more interest in the FAIB FOFATO Trainer Assessor Register and particularly since our Conference in October 2014 We aim to send out our proposals early in the New Year We would like Training Providers to work with us in 2 areas Firstly we want to encourage our Training Providers to share information on the Annual Monitoring that must be conducted on every Trainer Assessor if the Trainer Assessor works for other Training Providers This should be more efficient save time and money and avoid duplication of monitoring which has occurred under the HSE system FAIB will make available a generic monitoring form which is used by our Inspectors Secondly we ask that our Training Providers encourage their Trainers Assessors to register with us Qualifications of Trainers Assessors 2015 and beyond The National Register of Trainers also links in with a move to improve the standards and consistency of Trainers Assessors and FAIB FOFATO feel that this is critical in achieving the high standards that we want to see in this Industry We are aware of the moves aimed at achieving a standardised Training qualification in 2015 by the Awarding Bodies Within FOFATO we already know that the vast majority of Trainers Assessors have the required qualifications and DO NOT need to go on another Trainer Assessor course This is an issue that we are currently taking up with HSE and the Ministers involved FOFATO have made very clear that we want to see competent Trainers Assessors producing quality Training that in turns produces Confident and Competent First Aiders FOFATO will check that Trainers Assessors have the relevant qualifications but also that they are regularly involved in Teaching First Aid and are being Annually monitored by competent and qualified Assessors Paediatric First Aid You will all be aware that FAIB FOFATO is currently conducting its own consultation about Paediatric First Aid We have produced our own consultation form which has been sent out to all our Registered Training Providers We have already received back a number of these forms but we still need a lot more and particularly from Employers Could Training Providers please pass on the Consultation form to their clients If you require another Consultation form please let us know The closing date for return of the forms is now 31st January 2015 Social Media Forums There is more and more emphasis being placed on social media forums to circulate information about businesses and Industries First Aid is no different and there is now lots of information being circulated particularly on Linked In and Facebook some of which is not factually correct On Linked In there are pages for Ian Kershaw FOFATO and FAIB We have also created a new group called First Aid Industry Body and we would like our Training Providers and Trainers to register with this group We can then pass on information through this forum that is not only correct but relevant to FAIB We have also created Facebook pages for FAIB and FOFATO and again information has been put onto these forums from non FAIB FOFATO Training Providers that is not factually correct we ask our Training Providers to contribute with correct and relevant information Please help us to get our views across the First Aid Industry Letters to Members of Parliament You will all be aware that we have recently sent out information regarding a political campaign against the way that FAIB FOFATO is being treated by HSE The aim of this campaign is to achieve a meeting with the Minister s concerned We would like all of Registered Training Providers and Trainers to contact their Member of Parliament and consequently the Ministers involved We have already sent to you a draft letter covering all the points of contention If you require a copy of this letter then please let us know Links to FOFATO website We have now started to put links onto our website for those that have requested us to do so In return we ask that you put a link to our website If any other Training Providers wish us to add links please let us know giving us details of your website Payment of FAIB Annual Subscriptions There are still a number of Training Providers who have not paid their Annual Subscriptions Please help us to keep costs down and save us time by ensuring payments are made on time Thank You We wish to thank each and everyone of you for your continued support of FOFATO Once again we wish you a Merry Christmas as well as a Happy and Prosperous New Year Ian Kershaw MBE The Federation of First Aid Training Providers FIRST AID TRAINER QUALIFICATIONS SEPTEMBER 2014 Posted on September 20 2014 September 20 2014 by Ian Kershaw There is a lot of discussion taking place on various forums regarding Trainer Assessor qualifications FOFATO FAIB will have a proper discussion on this topic with its Registered Training Providers and at our Conference on 14th October 2014 What is very clear is that a lot of scaremongering is already taking place particularly from some Awarding Bodies FOFATO FAIB are also in discussion with HSE on this subject There is certainly no need to make hasty decisions Many of the First Aid Trainers in the United Kingdom will already have perfectly acceptable qualifications to teach First Aid What is more important is that every Trainer is verified on an annual basis We will keep you informed as soon as we have further information PAEDIATRIC FIRST AID UPDATE FOR EMPLOYERS AND TRAINING PROVIDERS Posted on September 8 2014 September 20 2014 by Ian Kershaw FOFATO explains in

    a Paediatric First Aid course This form has been sent out to all our Registered Training Providers and consequently onto Employers The results have shown that the vast majority want to continue with the 12 hour classroom course however a number would like to see the option of being able to conduct part of the course as distance learning as long as it was distance learning part was controlled by FAIB The way that FAIB would see this operating is that 6 contact hours of distance learning theoretical would be conducted first then the other 6 hours mainly practical would be conducted in the classroom We of course understand that there is still an issue within Scotland because there appears to be no governing body to achieve consistency and consequently most of the course are held over 6 hours Perhaps the introduction of the FAIB blended learning course may help There was no interest in extending the course to 22 guided learning hours The Paediatric First Aid course you are offering under FAIB is 12 hours and the content as listed on your certificate of approval Finally and just to make clear the Ofqual Paediatric First Aid Level 2 as it was and Level 3 as it is now and is now 22 Guided Learning hours but still 12 hours direct contact time and has the same content as the FAIB course Letters to Members of Parliament Thank you to all of the Training Providers who have written to their own Member of Parliament and consequently the Ministers concerned with our case We have received quite a number of replies from Members of Parliament and from the Minister for Business Vince Cable Unfortunately the vast number of the replies have simply been passed from the Minister straight to HSE and response from HSE has repeated the same information as before without actually answering most of the questions put to them The Minister covering HSE is now Lord Freud who has responded to FAIB but again just copying and pasting the HSE letter However one of our registered Training Providers received a response from Lord Freud inviting them to a meeting which we hope will be arranged in the near future Also in the latest letter from Vince Cable he indicated that he would be interested to hear the responses from HSE We are now in the process of replying to Vince Cable Social Media Forums There is more and more emphasis being placed on social media forums to circulate information about businesses and Industries First Aid is no different and there is now lots of information being circulated particularly on Linked In and Facebook some of which is not factually correct On Linked In there are pages for Ian Kershaw FOFATO and FAIB We have also created a new group called First Aid Industry Body and we would like our Training Providers and Trainers to register with this group We can then pass on information through this forum that is
