Student first aid programme

We’ve created our Student First Aid programme to give school staff a flexible approach in offering first aid training. Our schools training programmes are suitable for young people between the ages of 7 and 18, in primary and secondary schools. Our training programme allows teachers to choose training options that fit their pupils and the demands of a busy school day.

There are two options to choose from:

1. Students can learn first aid through a pre-set training offer, that range from one- to five-hour courses. These courses cover first aid basics such as choking, bleeding and CPR.

2. Teachers are also welcome to customise a training programme tailored for needs of their classroom. Each module runs 20 -30 minutes and include a broad range of topics, such as asthma, allergic reactions, seizures, low blood sugar, head injuries and severe bleeding.

Our training offers practical, fun and interactive first aid training. Our courses also meet National Curriculum requirements for Science, PSHE/Citizenship and PE.

All our dedicated trainers are equipped with extensive first aid knowledge, experience working with young people, and have a valid DBS check. 

The difference between life and death

Our research shows that seven out of 10 pupils wouldn’t know what to do if someone they knew was hurt, and yet the majority say they would like to learn first aid.

As the nation’s leading first aid charity, St John Ambulance believes that every young person should have the chance to learn vital life saving skills.
Our training will provide your pupils with the knowledge and confidence to be the difference between a life lost and a life saved.
