(first aid for secondary school children)
Teenagers need skills and confidence to look after themselves and each other as they spend more time away from adults and are liable to take more risks causing injuries and illness, so knowing basic First Aid is vital.
These courses are bespoke depending on the age of the children and the length of time that is available, and can be tailored for overseas travel, babysitting, or for their Sports Leader or Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards.
Our Teen-Aider courses are engaging and fun due to the emphasis on practical learning and can be run for schools, clubs, private groups or families.
- Incident management and calling for help
- Unconscious casualties and the safe airway position
- Serious bleeding
- Asthma and anaphylaxis

Thank you so much Louise, the girls LOVED it! They came home brimming with advice for us and wanting to practice the recovery position on everyone. Hopefully they won’t ever need to use their new knowledge but I’m so glad they have it! And they hugely enjoyed learning it. – Eliza
Louise was very energetic and engaging and the session was informative, giving key information without being overwhelming. All the explanations were very clear and it was brilliantly practical – this type of teaching sticks! – Sam
Louise makes learning first aid easy and she gives you confidence in giving it a go. The course has a great format and lots of humour makes it very memorable. – Lou
Louise was brilliant with our group of 6 year olds. She set just the right pace & covered so much. The children came away proud of what they had learnt and confident to try out their new skills. A really worthwhile 1.5 hours. Thank you so much! – Catherine
The course was excellent and this is an integral life skill to take away and not JUST a certificate you "should have" or "need to get to qualify". Louise delivers all the information in a clear and fun way which means staying engaged throughout the day. – Will
Louise runs an amazing first aid course. I came away feeling confident that I am now able to help in any situation if it was to arise. – Jasmine
