Students learn vital first aid skills

We were delighted to welcome Michelle Robinson from St John Ambulance who visited College to carry out first aid training with a group of Year 12 students.  The three-hour session covered a range of basic first aid including chest pain, communication and casualty care, primary survey, choking, resuscitation, severe bleeding and using an AED. The students involved are either studying Health and Social Care, or aiming to develop a future career in the health service. They found the practical training both beneficial and enjoyable.

The course was offered free to the students and we are very appreciative to York St John University for funding this initiative through the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP).
