Mini Medics (First Aid for Schools)

Course Profile

The Education Secretary has introduced new guidance stating that all children in schools should receive basic First Aid training. This course has been designed to meet that policy directive, as there are plans to introduce this programme onto the school curriculum. Specially designed for people under the age of 16, this course uses engaging resources and is delivered interactively. It is delivered over 3 hours consisting of theory and practical training. Each student will receive a worksheet and a fully illustrated 32-page ‘First Aid and Defibrillation for Children’ book, including a ‘cut-out’ Mini Medics® certificate of attendance. They will also get a unique syringe pen in red or blue or choose a pencil set.
