First Aid for School Teachers & Students
We all know that children reach a certain age where they like to explore. They are not always mature enough to understand that their actions can cause serious injuries. Children are extremely susceptible to injuries, whether they are at school or at home. It’s not always in the control of teachers or their care takers to prevent injuries. All schools should have a trained first aid team. We offer our first aid training to school children and their teachers. First Aid for Schools should be compulsory.
We often hear of children that saved the life of their friends or family. Without the required first aid training, these children might have panicked. If you teach a child the basics of first aid, the gain enough confidence to attend those in need. We must never underestimate the power of a child with adequate knowledge.
A level one first aid course will be sufficient in most cases. During the course, children and their teachers will learn to assist any the basic injuries. This includes cuts, scrapes and even broken bones. Not having emergency assistance swiftly can potentially cause a lot of damage. Especially on the sports field, injuries can happen all the time. A very dangerous injury included in the course is neck and spinal injuries. If the teacher or students understand the seriousness of this injury and how to treat it, it can be lifesaving.
Our level one course will include all the practical requirements to assess and treat most injuries that can happen at schools. We offer a substantial discount to larger groups. We recommend that every teacher should have first aid.
First aid for schools must actually be included in the school curriculum. Not knowing the basics can cause a lot of pain and future health problems. Children are often left at home unattended. If they have the necessary skills, the might be able to attend to themselves. This can take a lot of stress of the parents. First Aid for schools can be done nationwide at your school, depending on the number of students.
