The Big First Aid Lesson
Thousands of students have learned first aid through the Big
First Aid Lesson Live, streamed live into schools across the
country on 17 June 2016.
With the summer holidays in full swing, watch The Big First Aid
Lesson on demand and learn valuable life-saving skills.
Sponsored by Network Rail and Personal Group, this was a lesson
with a difference – there were live demos, incredible real life
stories, chances to ask questions, and other opportunities to get
involved. It covered a whole range of first aid scenarios including
choking, seizures and insect bites.

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 Live 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 email@example.com .
