This fun, practical course not only covers the essential Health and Safety Executive (HSE) syllabus for the Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) qualification but also includes additional paediatric topics relevant for a school setting.
Ideal for teachers, classroom assistants, playground helpers and kitchen staff, your next INSET/training day would be an ideal opportunity to gain some essential First Aid skills. We tailor our courses to ensure that we cover the likely scenarios you’ll face, so you come away with the skills you need.

This is an active and practical course that involves rolling around on the floor and some occasional close contact with another learner. Learners need to take a full and active part and comply with our Covid-19 mitigation measures. Please contact us prior to the course starting if you require a reasonable adjustment.
Some learners require multiple First Aid qualifications. Additional qualifications may be gained by completing this training, avoiding the need to do multiple courses.
