Life Skills 'Keep on Learning' students took part in a Mini Medic session ran by Adult Educations Health and Safety team, Karen Robins and Sandra Stanford. During the session the group identified what you would find in a first aid kit, used resuscitation dolls to administer CPR and were trained in the use of a defibrillator. The group practiced putting each other in the recovery position and discussed what to do in an emergency.
Finally, they used the choke vest to remove a blockage from the instructor Sandra.
Teacher Hannah Boyd said, "It was a great practical session enjoyed by all, a learning experience that could turn into a life saver.
