Following on from a meeting with the Norwegian Red Cross in Oslo, our Red Cross Board Rep (Liv Ronglan) kindly agreed to coordinate a trainer to visit the College to run the full ‘Street Mediation Instructors’ Course’ at some point in the second part of the academic year. All members of the Education and Support Staff took the Red Cross level I training course last August as part of professional development during Staff Introduction Week. A number of staff said that they found the level I training course both enjoyable and stimulating and would be interested in taking the instructor course given its use in our professional context of a residential school. Marlene Lauridsen, the instructor, is here this week and again in week 20 to deliver this Red Cross training for ca. 12 members of the Education Staff.
