How would you like to learn first aid from a trainer that has actually done what they are teaching you? Our Emergency First Aid for Schools course is based on the OFQUAL approved Emergency First Aid at Work course but has been more applicable for the School environment. We all know accidents are going to happen where children are concerned, but do we all know what to do when it goes wrong? The course is not just about Resuscitation but also about dealing with common school injuries like nose bleeds, cuts and bumped heads with confidence.

Who is this course suitable for?

This course is designed to meet the first aid requirements of those who look after children and young people in a school environment.

Who will I be taught by?

Our team of trainers are not just professional teachers the majority are members of the Ambulance Service and other emergency services. They deliver factual training based on current guidelines and most importantly experience. This ensures you are being taught by a professional that has actually done in real terms what they are teaching you.

In Safe Hands has a unique facility for training. Known as the ‘Simulation Centre’ students are taught in a multi environment setting. This includes a Kitchen, Bar Area, Lounge, Car, Outdoor area, Bathroom, Bedroom, and a Children’s play area. This allows courses to be facilitated, not just ‘in the classroom’ but in working arenas similar to that of their working environment.

It’s very much a fact of life that we learn by experience, which is why our training is more experience led.

What our trainee’s say...

" I have been on many Paediatric first aid courses this course was the best by miles, very often the previous courses just told you how to do things and not why. Having training from real emergency services people was great, the trainer used great humour and actual experience to provide us with great course."
