First aid champions is a brand new online resource for learners aged 5-18.  First aid education is now on the RSE and Health curriculum in England, and First aid champions can be used by all schools in the UK to teach the skills children and young people need to save a life.

You don’t need any first aid training yourself to use the site and there are also resources for children and young people to learn independently, too. 

Learning objectives 

Learners will

  •    Use engaging films, PowerPoints, role plays and quizzes to learn, practise and share first aid skills. 
  •    Learn about kindness, how to cope and keep calm, and how to keep yourself safe. 
  •    Gain the confidence and willingness to act in a first aid situation.
  •    Understand first aid from a range of perspectives, using realistic scenarios and engaging characters. 

The resource is differentiated for different ages (primary and secondary) and both follow a ‘learn – practise – share’ structure. You’ll find a variety of activities, films, PowerPoint presentations, quizzes and photographs to create engaging first aid learning sessions.
