Health and Social Care and Sport students from Huddersfield New College have recently undertaken an introductory course in First Aid as a part of their wider learning experience.
The course, which was delivered via Zoom by Kirklees Council and Thinking Big, offered students who are hoping to pursue a career within the medical fields an insight into ‘Street First Aid’, and looked at a variety of techniques that First Aiders use to administer medical attention in emergency situations. Students who have taken part in this course will have the opportunity later in the academic year to attend an accredited, two day training course, giving them the competitive edge when applying for their next steps. 
Wayne Russell, Head of Faculty for Sport and Health, comments “throughout this remote learning period, our students are receiving an outstanding education experience, and are still able to undertake a range of enriching opportunities, allowing them to build their skills outside of their study programme. This First Aid workshop was an excellent opportunity for those students aiming for a career within the medical and health sectors, to gain wider knowledge and experience. Thanks to our partners Kirklees Council and Thinking Big for delivering this engaging workshop and for working with our students to help us prepare the professionals of the future”.
