First Aid Course for Students

We've always believed that young people should be taught First Aid skills so they can have the confidence to help someone in an emergency and know when to seek help. This thinking is now fully supported by the UK government which has mandated that from September 2020, all state-funded schools in England will be required to teach first aid as part of the health curriculum. The course content will be adapted according to the age of the group and their collective goals. 

 

Some groups may be students participating in the Duke of Edinburgh scheme, heading off to university or college, going to their first festival, or learning basic first aid to help stay safe with friends. Whatever their needs, we will tailor the training to provide the appropriate skills and knowledge. 

Course details:

  • 2-3 hours of guided learning (longer training sessions also available)

  • Continuous assessment by trainer 

  • On completion of the course, all participants will receive a Wimbledon First Aid certificate of participation.

Subjects covered can include:

  • Recognising an emergency situation, knowing how help and call emergency services

  • Keeping safe whilst waiting for professional help to arrive

  • Unconscious casualty management

  • CPR and use of an AED (Defibrillator)
