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.
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.
Over the last week we have been posting a range of Bonfire Night safety tips through Facebook and Twitter. This post culminates them all and gives some great advice on how to stay safe this bonfire night! Most firework and bonfire incidents occur around this time of year so it’s important to take extra precautions and be aware of any danger.
Halloween is a frighteningly fun time of year where children and adults alike can dress up as their favourite super heroes or a scary spook!

On the lead up to Halloween we have been posting numerous safety tips on our Facebook and Twitter pages but here you can view the culmination of everything.
