First Aid Training
We recently had the pleasure of welcoming Catherine Wilkinson from the Gem Compliance training group in to school to teach our Yellow Base students to about basic First Aid. The training included some of the main areas of First Aid such as dehydration, bandaging, resuscitation, recovery position, airways and breathing and use of a mechanical defibrillator. They were taught using basic First Aid scenarios which could save somebody’s life.
The students followed instructions and were totally engaged and focused, they were awarded their certificates and were all genuinely proud of their achievements. Special thanks goes to Catherine who delivered the training for the first time in a special school setting. She explained the important points in a very clear manner which was pitched perfectly to our students’ abilities. Well done to all the students and staff who took part in the training.
