First Aid for School Staff – Half or Full Day
This school’s specific first aid course can be run over a half or full day and is tailored in such a way so as to cover both child and adult casualty incidents.
This course could be run as a whole school staff inset training day and also works a fun team building activity.
The course will give every staff member the opportunity to gain useful first aid skills and can work as an excellent opportunity to refresh skills for any staff already holding a valid first aid qualification.
By constantly reinforcing basic principles and procedures and building on these throughout the day candidates will learn a systematic approach to first aid that can be applied to any given situation. Assessment is continuous throughout the course by way of practical demonstrations.
Our courses are delivered in a fun and relaxed manner using incident based scenarios appropriate to the context of the course and the groups working environment. The training methods and techniques used on our courses are specifically designed to make first aiders more confident when dealing with real life incidents.

- Child and adult incident management techniques
