First Aid for Children in School

Booking for a Group or Need help?

Learning first aid is an invaluable life-skill. It helps children become more risk aware and equips them with skills to keep themselves safe and help themselves or others if involved in a medical emergency. It could save their life.

First Aid for Life is a multi-award-winning, fully regulated First Aid Training provider, working in partnership with hundreds of schools since 2007. We will tailor our training to your needs and the requirements of your pupils and to your budget too – we can teach as part of PHSE, link it to some other part of the curriculum, in preparation for a school trip, or around any other particular need. 

Our trainers are highly experienced (DBS cleared) medical and emergency services professionals who are superb at providing engaging practical training to adults, children and young people.

From September 2020, first aid training will be a mandatory part of the English PSHE curriculum. In light of this we have created an incredible range of  helpful age-appropriate resources to help you introduce your students to this complex subject.

The best way to teach first aid is hands-on. Students love the practical nature of this subject and the wealth of experience our medical and emergency services professionals are able to share.

We have created a comprehensive set of resources and teaching materials around the recovery position – which you can access totally free.

Full access to the rest of our downloadable teaching resources and the age appropriate modular online courses is free when you book any group practical first aid training with us for your staff, parents or students.

We are First Aid Experts specialising in providing engaging, informative, practical first aid training for staff, parents and pupil in schools and child care organisations.
