Our workshops equip young learners with First Aid Superhero skills and are designed to help them cope in the event of a medical emergency.
Children may witness a sudden injury or illness whilst playing with friends or being cared for by grandparents.
Remaining calm when someone is hurt or injured is hard, especially if they don’t know what to do. Our workshops empower young learners by teaching them to remain calm and giving them age specific first aid skills. Transforming them into First Aid Superheroes who feel more in control and know how to take action.
We will bring our First Aid Superhero Workshops to you – all we need is a classroom or hall.
Education Secretary, Damian Hinds, has confirmed that First Aid and CPR will be added to the school curriculum in England.
FAC+T: On average there are 270 deaths caused by sudden cardiac arrest in UK schools each year!
FAC+T: St John’s Ambulance recently revealed that 140,000 people die each year in the UK from incidents where first aid might have saved their lives. Yet, nearly two-thirds of people (59%) within the UK wouldn’t feel confident enough to even try and save a life, and a quarter (24%) would do nothing and wait for an ambulance to arrive.
FAC+T: In countries such as Norway where they already teach CPR in schools the survival rate of 25% for bystander CPR is well above the 10% found in Great Britain!
We welcome the new proposals which will see first aid and CPR being added to the curriculum as part of the Department for Education’s (DfE) plan to strengthen teaching of health, sex and relationships education.
The leading author and exponent of First Aid Training, Nigel Barraclough, had the following to say:
“It is great to see that this landmark decision is now becoming a reality and thousands of school pupils across the country will be trained in valuable life-saving CPR and first aid. By providing school children with the opportunity to learn these valuable skills, this is a significant step towards improving cardiac survival rates in the UK.”
We have age-appropriate workshops for learners in KS1 right through to KS5. Each Key Stage has a standalone workshop, but workshops are also designed to be sequential. As our young learners move to the next key stage they build on their prior learning and learn new skills.
Our First Aid Superhero workshops incorporate the themes.
Workshops are most often 1-2 hours, meaning we can deliver to several groups over the course of a day. We will work with you to agree appropriate content and format that best meets the needs of your learners and school.
All workshops are delivered in an age friendly format and ‘brought to life’ using hands-on guided experiential learning. Every lesson is delivered using lessons with clear aims and objectives and all learners will receive a ‘tiered’ certificate of attendance.
