Our Public First Aid Courses in Bedford and Silsoe

We hold regular first aid courses at our venues at Bedford Town Football Club and at Wrest Park in Silsoe. These will be particularly useful if:

  • you don't have the space to run an in-house course
  • you can't spare all your staff for training at the same time
  • you don't want the disruption of holding a course on your premises
  • you want expert-taught, regulated first aid courses without paying the high price charged by the national providers
  • your offices or staff are based within striking distance of Bedford or central Bedfordshire

  • 1-day Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW)

    Take a look at a selection of comments about our Silsoe and Bedford First Aid courses:

    The course was delivered with professionalism, accuracy and depth. The trainer made sure we all felt confident in an area before we moved on. I feel much more confident in being a first aider. Thank you

    Our Bedford First Aid Training Venue


    Bedford Town Football Club

    The Eyrie, Meadow Lane



    MK44 3LW

    Bedford Town FC sits just off the Cambridge Road, which is accessed from Bedford Southern bypass (A421) at the Cardington Road junction.

    Access to our Bedford Town FC is easiest by car, and the venue is well placed for access from Bedford itself as well as St Neots, Sandy and Biggleswade in the East, Ampthill and Luton to the south, Milton Keynes to the west and Northampton and Wellingborough to the north.

    There's free parking available at the ground, right outside the training room.

    Our Silsoe First Aid Training Venue


    Wrest Park Enterprise Centre

    Wrest Park



    MK45 4HS

    Our Mid-Bedfordshire courses are held in Wrest Park Enterprise Centre, which sits within the grounds of Wrest Park in Silsoe, half way between Bedford and Luton.

    Access is again easiest by car. From the east and west, the best route is via the A507 to Clophill, and then south on the A6. Wrest Park is well signposted as you travel around 1.5 miles south of Clophill.

    From the North and Bedford, travel southwards on the A6 to Clophill, and then follow the above instructions. From a southerly direction the best route is directly north on the A6. Follow the signs to Silsoe, and then the brown signs to Wrest Park.

    Please note that Wrest Park is not accessible directly from the A6. You need to go into Silsoe, and access from Silsoe High Street.

    Once again, there's plenty of parking at the venue.
