First Aid for Schools & Colleges 1 day practical training at our UK wide venues or at your place of work

This 7-hour course is ideally suited to Schools, Colleges, and Universities where a risk assessment has identified the need for staff to possess appropriate first aid skills and knowledge for both children and adults.

This course can meet a school's HSE and DfE regulatory requirements by combining two qualifications, the Emergency Paediatric First Aid and the Emergency First Aid at Work. All learners will receive two certificates. Teaching staff working in early years (nursery to reception) will need to complete an additional eLearning module to meet the requirements of OFSTED
