Course Description

This is a very popular workshop due to the nature of the practical experience and knowledge it provides. First aid aims to help young people be able to offer practical aid and support to anyone who is injured or is suffering. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn lifesaving skills and how best to keep yourself safe. The workshop is hands on and requires plenty of leadership and confidence. This is certainly a lifelong learning experience. Pupils will be using bandages, plasters, the recovery position, resuscitation, basic bedside manners and how to help in an asthma attack.
