How does it work?
The CPR 4 Schools takes a train the trainer approach whereby teachers attend a CPR 4 Schools workshop in their local education centre. These teachers are guided through the process of how to deliver CPR 4 Schools training in their classroom to their students.
The course uses a mixture of videos, lesson plans and worksheets to ensure ease of access within the classroom.
Each new school to the programme receives a free manikin kit and training worth €1,000 which they can use to practice in their school.
“Students have really enjoyed the training and were all eager to complete the programme. A great initiative”
Who can attend?
