LookwideUK exists to actively engage young people in their personal development, empowering them to achieve their full potential.
We believe that celebrating achievement is an important part of helping young people to enjoy learning, prepare for the future and secure employment.
Not all young people have positive experiences of learning and not everyone has certificates and achievements to list on their CV.
LookwideUK offers a range of nationally recognised Level 1 and 2 qualifications that can help young people re-engage with learning; we do our best to make sure that learning is fun and accessible, and leaves the learner with a sense of achievement.
• These courses are ideal for those preparing to start work or return to learning.
• Assessment is via questioning and practical demonstration, with a short written paper at the end of the day.
• Learners receive colourful and easy to understand booklets and a nationally recognised certificate.
• The minimum contact hours are 6 hours for First Aid over 1 or 2 days and 4 hours on 1 day for Health & Safety and Fire Safety.
LookwideUK can also deliver:
• Duke of Edinburgh Award
• John Muir Award (environment)
• Arts Award
• National Navigation Awards
• One Awards (regional branch of Open College Network) including Skills for Employment, Training and Personal Development

Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (QCF)
This is a recognised workplace qualification, however, we also tailor our delivery to meet the needs and interests of young people in everyday situations… knowing how to help a friend or relative can quite literally save a life!
Learners must be aged 16 or over and be able to provide ID to receive the qualification. Under 16s can receive an in-house certificate.
Level 1 Award in Principles of Health & Safety in the Workplace (QCF) Level 1 Award in Fire Safety Awareness (QCF)
These regulated qualifications focus on the importance of maintaining health and safety and reducing risks in the home and the workplace (including retail, manufacturing, food premises and the care environment).
Learners gaining these qualifications will understand that safety is the responsibility of everyone and how they can help to prevent accidents and fires.

Courses cost £440 for up to 12 learners, or £45 each for individual places.
Youth groups that meet our funding criteria pay a subsidised rate of £290 per day.
Let’s talk about how we can work together to help young people celebrate achievement.
