First Aid for teenagers & secondary school children
Our first aid for teenagers courses give secondary school aged children the 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.
Topics can include:
- Incident management and calling for help
- Unconscious casualties and the safe airway position
- Serious bleeding
- Asthma and anaphylaxis
- Bone, muscle and joint injuries
- Burns and poisoning
- Head and spinal injuries
The first aid for teenagers course can be between 1 and 5 hours plus breaks, depending on the chosen topics. Approximate times vary with group size and level of maturity of the children participating.
Louise is a qualified, enthusiastic trainer who is an ex-secondary school geography teacher, mother of 2 children and DBS checked (on the annual update service), so is perfectly trained to deliver the first aid for teenagers course! An extra adult who knows the children must always be on hand for pastoral care.
Ranges from £100 for 1 hour, £300 for 4 hours to £430 for 7 hours. Please enquire for other time frames.
For more than 20 children an assistant trainer is required, charged at £60 for the first hour then £35 per subsequent hour.
Optional extras – manuals, mini first aid kits, regulated certificates.
Can be held at any venue large enough not only to seat everyone but which also has enough floor space for the practicals, or we can source a venue for you at your cost, if required.
