Our Training

Our Teaching Model

Schools will have access to a live calendar of available  training sessions offered by the volunteers of the charity who are trained to deliver this teaching. The teaching is available to all school children over the age of 9 years.
Each session will have 5 instructors, each with an adult CPR mannekin and a child CPR mannekin.

  • We will demonstrate and teach:
    • How to recognise choking in another child,
    • How to call for help
    • How to manage the choking child.
  • We will demonstrate and teach:
    • How to recognise cardiac arrest,
    • How to summon help and
    • How to perform rescue breaths and continuous CPR in both adults and children.
  • We will demonstrate and teach:
    • How to place a casualty in the recovery position

Handouts will be given of the sequence of skills as an aide memoir and each group of instructors will have doctors present to answer questions.
The volunteer pool of Little LifeSavers will comprise of junior and senior doctors skilled in life support techniques and a non-medical public volunteer pool who have undertaken training with a certified training body and are skilled to deliver the teaching. The CPR training for non- medical volunteers will be paid for by the charity and by undertaking the course the volunteers commit themselves to a minimum of 3 school training sessions per year.

The Mannekins we use to train the children CPR and BLS

We use Brayden Mannekins for our training which are excellent learning aids for the children being taught Basic Life Support Skills and CPR

The Brayden Mannekins:-

  • Fully Illuminate to show that CPR and Compression rate are correct
  • Have Oral and Nasal Passages which allow a realistic nose pinch
  • Highly realistic chest movements with correct ventilation.
  • Allow a head tilt and chin lift for opening airways
  • Are Anatomically correct, latex free and harmless
  • Audible feedback reinforces correct compression depth.
  • The Air vents reduce the risk of cross contamination. Air from Brayden’s disposable lungs exits through the back of his head. This means students never come in to contact with exhaled air.
