Mini - Medics

Our Mini-Medics is a fun and interactive course designed to help school-aged children to understand the key concepts of first-aid and the importance of helping someone who is unwell or injured. 

Each session is specifically designed to provide a basic introduction to First Aid and Defibrillation aimed at children between the ages of 8 and 11, but it can be adapted to suit children of any age. The course is kept at a basic level with no use of confusing terminologies. The course will show complete respect for the child’s ability, make it educational and practical, and instil the importance of helping someone who is poorly or injured.

The course itself is delivered by registered and practising Paramedics and gives the children a chance to learn new skills and see inside the back of a 'real-life' Ambulance. Helping to reduce anxiety and stress should any child ever have to travel in an Ambulance for any reason.

We offer two sessions; a 3-hour session or a 1.5-hour session dependent on your requirements. As part of both sessions, participants will get the following items for free;

  • a student resource pack

  • a syringe pen

  • attendance certificate
