First aid teaching resources

Our free teaching resources are designed to give children and young people the skills, confidence and willingness to act when someone is in need of first aid.

First aid is simple to teach and fun to learn.

Get primary and secondary teaching ideas about:

  • how children and young people can stay safe
  • what to do in a first aid emergency
  • what might prevent people from stepping in to help and how to overcome barriers to action.
