Queen Park Community School

Queen Park Community school ran a first aid session with a sixth form enrichment class using our resources. Watch the video to see our resource in action. The video includes view points from teachers and students as well as the head teacher’s thoughts.

 Seven Kings School

Seven Kings School used our resource to incorporate first aid into the school's enrichment programme. The confidence young people have after learning first aid is amazing and empowered them to step in.

One student, 16-year-old Anmol saw an elderly man collapse in a shopping centre car park and she stopped to help. The teenager calmly observed the situation, called 999 and stayed with the man, providing reassurance until the emergency services arrived.
