These courses can combine with a practical course to provide extended learning. They are also suitable for children to access as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
First Aid for Children in School
We would be delighted to come and run a bespoke group course at your school. We can tailor it to any area of the curriculum, or to prepare for secondary school, Duke of Edinburgh expeditions, babysitting, sports leadership or any other reason that young people would like to learn these vital skills.
We also run specialist courses for children at risk of dropping out of school and children involved in gangs and knife crime.
