Skills for Life and Work

Over the past two weeks volunteers have begun working on their Employability Award and completed an Emergency First Aid course.

Everything we do at Green Action requires working and co-operating in teams. Volunteers undertook some team building challenges including the task shown below – moving a pallet and container of water across the car park without touching it by hand and from beyond an exclusion zone.

Volunteers have also done a fantastic job in planting nearly 100 trees around the area of the Falkirk Wheel.

First Aid

Knowing some basic first aid is a very useful skill no matter what environment we are in. Volunteers enjoyed an Emergency First Aid course at The Falkirk Wheel last week, delivered by St. Andrews First Aid.

14 people – young volunteers and mentors completed the course which included coping with a range of injuries and conditions as well as potentially life-saving CPR.
