Hello, I’m Joanne and I am director and lead trainer at Act Fast for Schools. I am passionate about teaching people to save lives and having spent over 20 years in education teaching in further education, it was a natural and easy choice to specialise my business to work with schools, universities and young people.
As teachers, we build relationships with our students and it always felt very alien to me to deliver a first aid course for one day and then not see my students for another three years until they needed to renew their skills and qualifications. This is why I have adapted my business and created a subscription model for you so we can work together longer term and give you the support you need. It’s very important to me …and so structuring my business this way makes me much happier.
When I’m not working, you will find me in the hills or on the water canoeing and I love spending time in the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. I also volunteer with the Duke of Edinburgh Award and Young Enterprise as well as with my local canoe club as a Level 2 UKCC Canoe Coach.
