First Aid

To support adults in Scouting, the Association provides a comprehensive programme of training to build on existing skills and knowledge and develop new competencies. Some elements of training can count towards externally-recognised qualifications, and within the movement there are also awards to recognise dedication to training and outstanding service.

First Aid Training is required by Leaders/Managers working with young people in Scouting. (The need for First Aid training is set out on your PLP or in the role matrix Appointments | Scouts)

First Response (6 hours) is the minimum requirement set down by the Scouts. This is divided into 3 sessions of approximately 2 hours.

Part 1: E-learning

This has been developed by Hampshire Scouts and we appreciate the opportunity to have access to this.
