The Big First Aid Lesson
Registration now open for The Big First Aid Lesson Live
On 17 June 2016, your students could learn how to save a life
in just one hour
Live and free, the nation’s biggest first aid lesson returns to
schools across the country at 2pm-3pm on 17 June
The Big First Aid Lesson Live, sponsored by Network Rail and
Personal Group, is an interactive hour-long online programme
streamed live into classrooms. It’s filmed in front of a live
audience of students and will be hosted by Dr Ranj, the
co-creator and presenter of the hugely popular CBeebies’ show, Get
Open to students aged 7-16, it will cover a whole range of
first aid scenarios including chest pains, seizures and insect
bites. But this will be a lesson with a difference – there will be
live demos, incredible real life stories, chances to ask questions,
and other opportunities to get involved.
The only equipment schools need to take part is an internet
connection and a screen (such as an interactive whiteboard) for
their pupils to watch in the classroom or during assembly.
We hope that by making first aid accessible, easy to learn, and
even fun - students will walk out feeling confident they could one
day be a life saver.

Want to see more Big First Aid Lessons?
If taking part in the Big First Aid Lesson Live gives you a
taste for life saving - good news! We also produce a series of
short, downloadable first aid programmes throughout the year. These
cover even more topics and mean students can carry on learning
throughout the Spring and Autumn terms too.
Each programme features real life scenarios, easy-to-follow
demonstrations and a range of conditions. So in the space of just
10 minutes, students can learn skills to last a lifetime.
And because we know 7-year-old Suzy might not appreciate the
same things as 16-year-old Samir, we create different programmes
for primary and secondary school age children, with demonstrations
relevant to each age group.
All the programmes are available to download and watch now at
with new programmes available every Autumn and Spring terms.
Tell us your first aid story …and inspire a new generation
of first aiders!
If you or one of your students has ever given
emergency first aid, please tell us about it. Real stories help
children see how vital first aid is – motivating them to get
trained, and to take action if they are ever faced with an
emergency. We especially want to hear from you if one of your
students watched the Big First Aid Lesson last year, and has since
used the first aid they learned from that.
If you've got an amazing first aid story to tell, we'd love to
hear it. Send the details to firstname.lastname@example.org .
