  1. This sounds great and I have had many enquiries regarding mental health first aid. I currently deliver Highfield Level 3 paediatric first aid along with level 3 first aid at work and level 3 emergency first aid at work, also I have attended a 2 day mental health first aid course. Will all these current qualifications allow me to deliver your new set of mental health qualifications.

      • Hi there – the specification does include the tutor requirements on page 5. We would want to know a little more about the first aid for mental health 2 day course you undertook to make sure it provided sufficient knowledge however, as the emphasis on delivery and assessment of this new qual would be knowledge of mental health.

        • Hi, I’ve tried to find the specification to read the tutor requirements but I’m unable to find it. I’m also looking to deliver this training in the near future and would like to know what qualifications I need to undertake now in order to deliver the qual as soon as it’s released. When is this likely to be available to centres? Thanks in advance.
