Teachers encouraged to learn first aid

Have your say

TEACHERS and school staff on Wearside are being encouraged by St John Ambulance to learn life-saving skills.

The charity says that one child in 11 has asthma and as the most common long-term medical condition affecting children in the UK, there is an average of two children with asthma in every classroom.

The new St John Ambulance First Aid Inset Training course allows schools to customise first aid training from a list of first aid modules, including asthma, severe allergic reaction and common injuries or medical conditions.
