Educator introduction

Welcome to First aid learning for young people. By registering for an educator account, you have taken the first step towards educating young people in first aid. Thank you!

You don’t need any training or a first aid kit to teach and deliver first aid sessions*. This resource is designed to make first aid simple to do, easy to learn and easy to remember. It will help you develop young people’s knowledge and confidence to act in a first aid emergency.

Focusing on developing confidence, as well as skills, makes it more likely that people will take action in a first aid emergency.

In this document you can read an overview of:

  • what’s in the educator zone and how to use it
  • the Red Cross approach to learning first aid
  • the resources and activities
  • tailoring and creating sessions to suit your needs.

*Practising of chest compressions and back blows should only be done using a manikin.
