Teaching students life-saving skills
The Big First Aid Lesson has been created to make it easier for schools to teach first aid. It’s a great introduction for students, or if they already know some first aid, a brilliant way of refreshing their skills.
St John Ambulance has a whole section on their website dedicated to bringing first aid education into schools.
Launched in 2014, the event was a big success, with 32,384 students taking part and learning life saving first aid skills.
