First Aid for School Staff

First Aid for School Staff is designed for teachers to have a basic understanding of first aid techniques for conditions that they may encounter when looking after children. The course covers primary and secondary care skills.


All our first aid courses fully meet the UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2015 as per the HSE requirements.

  • military (medics)
  • outdoor professionals (Mountain leaders)
  • Community Responders
  • Experienced First Aiders

We aim to match instructors to your specific training requirements. They are aware of the specific needs of various outdoor environments, fully understanding the problems and judgements that have to be made when dealing with incidents in stressful, dangerous and remote situations.


Our training is very practical and hands on. We do not rely upon the usual ‘death by PowerPoint’, instead we use progressive incident scenario based training methods.

Our courses teach techniques proven to work in real life incidents and not just in a classroom. Our training builds confidence and develops first aid skills into complete incident management.




All candidates must attend the full course to pass. Each candidate is continually assessed throughout and must demonstrate competence in all the assessed skills.


The 1 day First Aid for School staff is valid for 3 years. It can be revalidated by completing another 1 day First Aid for School staff course.

It is ‘highly recommended’ that work place first aiders attend an Annual Basic Skills Refresher course.


We certificate through our Ofqual and SQA authorised and regulated awarding body ITC First Aid. If you require a bespoke training package we can also certificate for this through our awarding body ITC First Aid.
