Our resource has been awarded a Quality Mark from the PSHE Association. First aid is a core component of the PSHE curriculum and is most commonly taught within this subject. It plays a vital role within PSHE as it helps young people develop a sound understanding of risk and helps them make safe and informed decisions.
First aid education can also develop self-confidence and esteem, and empowers young people to contribute to the wider community with the skills and confidence to step in and help when someone is in need of first aid.
PSHE teachers can deliver effective and engaging first aid lessons and don’t need any first aid training to pick up and delver this quality resources. Use the educator zone and introductory guide on the website to find more about the resource and the educational methods that underpin first aid learning for young people.
As an organisation we continue to champion first aid education in schools and for every child and young people to receive one hour of first aid learning each and every year. We responded to the government’s call for evidence on PSHE in February 2018 and are looking forward to seeing their response to the potential of a new statutory PSHE curriculum in England.
