First Aid for Younger Learners
We are proud to be involved in a movement to increase knowledge of First Aid amongst young people.
When asked the question “how confident and able would you be to assist someone in a First Aid situation?” up to 75% of respondents from areas such as Scandinavia, the US and Australia answer that they are highly likely to assist. Compare that to the UK where only 23% are likely to help L
The main reasons given for fearing First Aid are not knowing what to do, fear of making it worse, fear of getting sued and lacking general confidence. These fears can easily be allayed by attending a course and it should be noted that in Scandinavia kids have done 3 First-Aid courses by the time they leave school and in many parts of Europe a First Aid qualification is pre-requisite to obtaining a driving license.
Apart from the obvious benefit of being able to do something in an emergency and helping to develop the First Aiders of the future, common feedback cites improvements in:
CONFIDENCE - SENSE OF RESPONSIBILITY - SELF-ESTEEM - PARTICIPATION - GENERAL BEHAVIOUR ISSUES - FUNCTIONAL SKILLS - AWARENESS OF CAREER OPPORTUNITIES
THE COURSE OUTLINE
We keep it simple whether for kids or adults and tailor this course so that it is suitable for anywhere from Key Stages 2 to 4
We have a very flexible approach for schools....choose from the courses below or mix and match.
Half-day course – Basic Lifesaving Skills
Includes an introduction, care & communication, First Aid kit, Primary survey, Recovery position, CPR & choking. You may substitute any subjects here as you see fit.
Full-day course – As above plus Bleeding, Burns and scalds, fainting, chest pain, allergies, bites and stings, seizures plus any other business/open forum. Again topics can be substituted to your requirements.
With a fun approach we’ll have them delivering rescue breaths and chest compressions to manikins, bandaging each other up and getting rid of obstacles from the wind pipe!
Certificates of attendance are issued to all attendees
Students over 16 may complete the accredited Emergency First Aid at Work course which comes with a credit and fits into the qualifications framework. Attendees receive a basic first aid booklet along with a face shield, training bandage and sling per person.
Full-day - £450 + VAT
Half –day - £300 + VAT
We can mix this up any way you want so please ask. For example we did a day of one hour modules so were able to teach 100 kids about the recovery position and CPR in a day with just one tutor...and it was fun!
Generally one tutor to 20 learners is acceptable but for these courses if you can provide extra supervision (rather than pay for an extra tutor) you can add more students so that more kids can get their first experience of First Aid. Again please just ask, we are sure to satisfy your requirements and come up with feasible options regarding topics covered, timings etc.
We offer a nation-wide coverage and deliver the training on your premises.
