TEACHERS are being offered the chance to bid for free first aid training for every student in their school with St John Ambulance.

The first aid charity’s new Student First Aid (SFA), aimed at 5 to 18-year-olds, is designed to give school staff a flexible approach in offering first aid training and allows teachers to choose training options that fit their pupils and the demands of a busy school day.

As part of the scheme, each year group will learn a different aspect of first aid.

For more information or to contact your nearest St John Ambulance schools trainer, telephone 0161 443 0106 or visit sja.org.uk/studentfirstaid.
