Kay Patterson Instructor Profile


Kay is one of our highly qualified Lead Trainers operating from Worcestershire and has been with Nuco Training since 2013.


When did you first learn first aid and why?

I joined the ambulance service in 2002 and trained to become a paramedic. I have always thrived when training and really enjoyed furthering my knowledge in areas surrounding emergency care. I continuously maintained my professional development and most recently completing a university degree with the intention of a possible career digression in the future.

What made you choose to become a first aid instructor/trainer?

After being in the ambulance service for over 10 years, I began teaching part time as a visiting lecturer at the local university to paramedic students. This positive experience gave me the ambition to look into gaining a nationally recognised teaching qualification to hopefully enable me to teach as a career and further develop my teaching skills. During this time the ambulance service was undergoing many changes which further encouraged and confirmed my decision to pursue a career in teaching.

What would you say to someone considering becoming a first aid trainer?

I can’t recommend Nuco Training enough. Every interaction with them has been received with a prompt, positive and extremely helpful response. No query is too much trouble for any member of the team.
Becoming a First Aid Instructor is an exciting, challenging but overall fun career and I would suggest contacting Nuco if you are considering this as an option to discuss further. My husband, Ian is booked on a forthcoming course knowingly how much I have achieved since making the decision to become an Instructor with Nuco Training.
