Basic First Aid is not only an essential life skill, but also highly desirable for employers and universities, who are looking for applicants who stand out and offer something different. With this in mind Year 12 students were given the opportunity to learn basic first aid techniques from VBA Associates (www.vbassociates.co.uk/future-first-aiders/).
The one day course saw students learn how to put people in the recovery position, give CPR on an adult, small child and baby, defibrillator training, and much more!
A huge thank you to Telcare (www.telcare.co.uk), for providing this opportunity for our students.
“I thought the whole day was great. Kevin made it really fun, interactive and hands on. For me, the most important part was learning how to carry out CPR on babies and toddlers, as I only knew how to do it on an adult.” – Alfie Cox
