Tom Malcolm, director

Tom Malcolm was born in Brighton but moved with his family to the North-east when he was six.

His father worked on a number of farms, and when he was growing up Tom lived in locations across the region, including Elgin, Banff, Turriff, and Montrose. He eventually settled in Aberdeen and has five grown-up children — who all live locally — and four grandchildren, with whom he spends as much time as he can.

Tom has been delivering first-aid training to both adults and children for more than 35 years.

Tom was later a full-time first-aid trainer with Grampian Regional Council and then Aberdeen City Council. In this role, he trained council employees, among them school staff, social workers, and road workers. He started out as a Class 1 Army medic teaching recruits in the early 1980s, going on to become an instructor with the Cadets.

He was also a first-aid trainer and volunteer with the Red Cross for more than 20 years.

He took voluntary redundancy from his council role in 2009 to focus full time on Grampian Training Services.

Away from the region’s classrooms, Tom works on a voluntary basis with the ambulance service as a first responder and as a Wildcat Cardiac Responder with the Sandpiper Trust.
