Schools’ First Aid

The Schools First Aid is one-day and provides comprehensive first aid knowledge tailored to common risks for students. It’s an ideal complement to statutory First Aid at Work or Emergency First Aid at Work training for your staff.

Course description

Who should attend?

This course is designed for teachers and ancillary staff who work in the classroom and in the school. Childcare practitioners, workers, and au pairs, particularly those who work in nursery settings with infants, would benefit from enrolling in one of our Paediatric First Aid courses.

Candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2). While we are often able to provide support to people who do not have English as a first language, our ability to do so is limited by the time available and the number of people who require assistance. We may be able to make special arrangements if requested in advance. Please contact us if you need any guidance.
