Future First Aiders

Our Active First Aid course, Future First Aiders, aims to provide children with the essential skills needed to help others in a first aid situation.


Delivered though interactive and engaging sessions, our qualified tutors will ensure all pupils have the opportunity to take part in practical activities which include the use of CPR manakins and trainer AED’s.

A number of role play scenarios will help embed understanding of danger of how to contact and communicate effectively with the emergency services. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions of our knowledgeable trainers, they will be more than willing to answer!

  • Keeping yourself safe/assessing danger

  • Know what to do in an emergency
  • Giving first aid in different situations
  • Focus on: Burns; Bleeds; Breaks; Choking; Unresponsive person; Asthma; CPR
