Education

The education industry greatly benefits from physical and mental health first aid training provided by Madeleys First Aid Plus. Here are the reasons why:

  1. Student Safety: Educators and staff in the education industry are responsible for the safety and well-being of students. Physical first aid training equips them with the skills to respond to common accidents and injuries that can occur in educational settings, such as playground incidents, sports injuries, or allergic reactions. They can provide immediate care and ensure the safety of students until professional help arrives.
  2. Medical Emergencies: Schools and educational institutions may encounter medical emergencies, including seizures, asthma attacks, or cardiac arrests. Physical first aid training prepares educators and staff to respond effectively in such situations, performing life-saving techniques like CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) or using automated external defibrillators (AEDs) when necessary. This training helps create a safe environment for students and staff alike.
  3. Mental Health Support: The education industry plays a crucial role in supporting students' mental well-being. Mental health first aid training equips educators and staff with the knowledge and skills to identify signs of mental distress, such as anxiety, depression, or self-harm tendencies, among students. They can provide initial support, refer students to appropriate resources, and create a supportive and inclusive environment that promotes positive mental health.
  4. Bullying and Conflict Resolution: Schools may experience instances of bullying, conflicts among students, or other behavioural issues. Mental health first aid training helps educators and staff understand the psychological impact of these situations, enabling them to effectively address conflicts, intervene in bullying incidents, and support the emotional well-being of students involved.
  5. Well-being and Stress Management: The education industry can be demanding, with educators and staff facing high workloads, long hours, and emotional challenges. Mental health first aid training equips them with self-care strategies, stress management techniques, and resilience-building skills to maintain their own mental well-being. Educators who practice self-care are better able to support their students effectively.
  6. Inclusive Practices: Education professionals need to be aware of and sensitive to the diverse needs of their students, including those with disabilities, learning difficulties, or mental health conditions. Physical and mental health first aid training promotes inclusive practices and provides educators with the knowledge and tools to support students with different abilities and mental health challenges.
  7. Collaborative Learning Environment: Effective teaching and learning require a positive and supportive environment. Physical and mental health first aid training fosters communication skills, conflict resolution techniques, and teamwork among educators, staff, and students. This training enhances the overall atmosphere within educational institutions, promoting collaboration and creating a safe space for learning and growth.

By providing physical and mental health first aid training, Madeleys First Aid Plus supports the education industry in creating a safe, inclusive, and supportive environment for students and educators. This training enhances the well-being of students, equips educators with life-saving skills, promotes mental health awareness, and contributes to the overall success of educational institutions.

Our Courses

Voices of Trust and Success

I can’t believe how much I learned about mental health in just one day. The course is really interesting and very informative - Lou teaches in a way that enables plenty of interaction and discussion between the learners, breaking down any stigma people may have about talking about mental health issues. I now think very differently about how a person may be thinking or feeling, and I am mindful of their words and actions and how it could be a warning sign or a cry for help. Being a mental health first aider means I could make a difference to someone who is struggling. That is a massive and personal thing to me.

First Aid for Mental Health

Audrey Whyle, ArtShack

I have been singing her praises and we're already booked in for our First Aid at work and safeguarding training.

Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable People

Fearless Female Education Ltd

An excellent course that was informative and well taught. Louise did a brilliant job of explaining all areas of First Aid-what we needed to do and why which massively helped the learning experience and my ability to retain life saving information. I would highly recommend this course.

Emergency First Aid at Work

Katie Iles, The SeaChange Trust

From the start to finish Louise was informative, practical and interesting. With her extensive background and experience within the medical industry including A an E, she was able to pitch real scenarios at us regardless of the nature of our business or employment which made the whole day much more relevant. Very Highly recommended to anyone either refreshing or starting First Aid for the first time and I wouldn't hesitate to offer her and Madeleys First Aid Plus services to anyone who needs First Aid qualifications.

First Aid at Work

Phil Rowley, Rowley Racing

Louise came highly recommended for Mental Health First Aid training and after a chat with her, I quickly realised she was definitely the right fit for me and my team. Louise was efficient, patient (7 rather chatty women), friendly and tremendously knowledgable which made the course one of the best training sessions I have ever been on. We had a thoroughly enjoyable day and nearly three weeks later, we are still talking about the training and more importantly, putting it into practice. I feel fortunate to have found someone who understood our needs and could deliver so effectively to such a diverse team. Keeping everyone's interest and getting all of us engaged is no meant feat and Lou made it look easy.

I am more confident to help if ever needed, who knew there was a “best side” for the recovery position! Very good information regarding the use of the defib machine, I’d be confident to use it if ever needed!
