Carnegie Coach Education, a dedicated unit in the University, is responsible for the organisation, administration and delivery of professional training from a comprehensive portfolio of courses. You can attend one of our courses on a set date or we can also deliver an ‘offsite’ course at your chosen venue (subject to venue suitability and tutor availability)

NO VAT TO PAY ON ANY OF OUR COURSES

Leeds Beckett University is an eligible body for VAT purposes which means that it does not charge VAT on its supply of education and training. This makes us more competitive when compared to other providers who are not eligible bodies.

Our reputation and the popularity of our First Aid training has resulted in a comprehensive calendar of courses covering all those listed above, where delivery is repeated throughout the year to accommodate interested individuals/ organisations.

It is the responsibility of an employer to decide how many employees are trained as First Aiders, as well as which type of training they need.
