Free First Aid for Schools
We believe that every school child in the UK should have the opportunity to learn first aid skills, because we understand this can be costly for schools we offer a free student first aid course to all schools. Student First Aid is designed to teach first aid to Key Stage 2 and secondary school students throughout the UK. We replace the classroom-based first aid course with a video-based e-learning course. This makes the programme free to the school and more flexible to implement. Students can learn first aid from home or during an IT/ Computer lesson, allowing them to learn at their own pace and, of course, teaching them valuable computer skills. Each school then has the option to add a hands-on component, in which the student's knowledge is evaluated on a manikin by a trained skill evaluator. The only possible expense results from the addition of the hands-on component.
