Published by British Red Cross
Education isn’t – and shouldn’t be – just about
reading, writing and maths. At its core, education
should also be about gaining practical knowledge
that will help people to be more confident, willing
and able to help in a crisis.
And what could be more practical than learning
how to save someone’s life?
Schools provide an ideal forum for learning to
cope with adversity – and that’s why the Red
Cross has already spent over five years helping
teachers in the classroom.
We believe that first aid and humanitarian
education should have a secure place on the
school curriculum.
