First Aid Skills

6th form students were engaged in a programme of learning the life saving skills of first aid recently, here at Carmel College. A number of schools, from throughout the Catholic Partnership, were invited to complete the Heartstart emergency life support programme by The British Heart Foundation. Students from BTEC Health and Social Care and Children’s Development courses thoroughly enjoyed their time learning about what to do in an emergency situation including dealing with:

•Asthma
•Choking
•Communication and casualty care
•Fainting
•First aid kit
•Primary Survey
•Recovery position

A fantastic opportunity to engage in such vital skills!
