Children can be First Aid Heroes!

Children can be First Aid Heroes!

This years World First Aid Day saw an outcry for all children to be taught first aid and to add it to the curriculum. This year the First Aid Responder of the Year was a child called Karen from Iceland who performed CPR on her mother who was having an epileptic seizure on a bus. With the right knowledge anyone can save a life, anywhere. Most of the time children save lives using first aid knowledge they have learnt from doing extra curricular activities such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award, Cubs and Rainbows. If every child was taught basic first aid it would increase awareness and the amount of lives saved dramatically.

What is the Level 3 Education and Training Course and is it for you?

Do you want to teaching adults? If so then you need to hold a Level 3 Education and Training Certificate to state that you understand teaching methods and how to teach effectively.  Without this qualification you won’t have the understanding of what makes a good lesson and course. To teach something effectively you need to have a knowledge of the subject area you are teaching along with teaching methods.
