Make First Aid A Compulsory Skill Taught By Schools

This petition had 405 supporters

140,000 people die each year in the UK alone from incidents where first aid could of possibly saved their lives

I believe that not only should everyone know basic first aid... but this basic first aid should be taught in schools, at the age where minds have a stronger ability to develop a skill.

I am not asking to replace a core subject from the national curriculum, I am not asking to take time away from sport, music or dance... I am asking for the development of a 'generation of life savers'.

These basic First Aid skills could be taught during Citizenship/ PSHE. Linked in with PE/ Sports/ Sciences. Taught in assembly style with time to practice.

However they are taught, one of these young people could save your life.

Sign this petition to help us develop a generation of life savers today...
