DofE Skill for Bronze Award

By attending the 3-month programme at First Perception, participants can achieve qualifications in first aid, which will also cover the skills section or volunteering for the Duke of Edinburgh award. Additionally, your child/ward will be qualified as a youth mental health first aider. This is a valuable skill that can benefit them and others around them. It's wonderful to see such comprehensive training being offered.

The program's holistic approach ensures that participants not only gain practical first aid knowledge but also develop essential life skills such as empathy, communication, and resilience. The training sessions are designed to be interactive and engaging, allowing youngsters to learn in a supportive and dynamic environment.

Moreover, the experience can enhance their leadership qualities and boost their confidence, preparing them for various challenges they might face in the future. The inclusion of youth mental health first aid is particularly timely and relevant, given the increasing awareness of mental health issues among young people today.

Parents and guardians can rest assured that their children are acquiring skills that are not only crucial in emergencies but also in everyday interactions. It's an investment in their personal growth and well-being, with benefits that extend well beyond the duration of the program.

Overall, First Perception’s initiative reflects a commitment to nurturing well-rounded individuals who are equipped to contribute positively to their communities.
