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.
