The Big First Aid Lesson
The Big First Aid Lesson is our
free online first aid session, streamed live into
school classrooms across England.
Launched in 2014, the event was a big success,
with 32,384 students taking part and learning life
saving first aid skills.
By streaming our first aid lesson straight into the classroom,
thousands of children were able to learn first aid skills
for free, without leaving their desks, so they know what
to do if a classmate, friend or family member needs help.
As well as watching the lesson live on screen, our
interactive programme gave them the chance to hear
amazing real life stories, ask questions and talk
to our expert panel of peer to peer educators.

because first aid isn’t compulsory on the National Curriculum,
only 21% are able to offer first aid training in their
That's why we went the extra mile to make
teaching these skills as easy as possible.
