Hand on Heart Charity
We are proud to support the Salford based charity 'Hand on Heart' who work tirelessly to raise awareness of Basic Life Support and the use and access of defibrillators in schools.
The charity, in partnership with Training Qualifications UK, provides schools with CPR and AED training using TQUK's Level 2 Award in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Automated External Defibrillation (QCF) Award. They have now placed over 800 defibrillators in schools across the country whilst they have trained over 18,000 pupils and 5,000 staff.
Knowing that learners who have undertaken the TQUK qualification may go on to save the lives of countless children makes all of the hard work that we do in maintaining the quality of our qualifications that extra bit special.

Dementia Action Alliance
Training Qualifications UK are proud to announce that we have become the first Awarding Organisation to join forces with the Dementia Action Alliance. The Alliance brings together organisations across England who are committed to transforming the lives of people with dementia and their carers.
It is the aim of the DAA to bring about a society-wide response to dementia which has begun at a National level with the DAA beginning to shape policy and attitudes. In the meantime, on a local scale the DAA is coordinating efforts via local dementia action alliances.
