CARDIOPULMONARY RESUSCITATION (CPR) TRAINING AND AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATOR (AED) AWARENESS - TEACHER PROFESSIONAL LEARNING OPPORTUNITY
In March 2022, legislation came into effect stating that cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) must be included in the minimum statutory content in Learning for Life and Work at Key Stage 3. CCEA has partnered with the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service (NIAS), the Department of Education (DE) and the Education Authority to create the Community of Lifesavers Education Programme to support schools in meeting this requirement.
As part of the Community of Lifesavers Education Programme, two teachers from every Post Primary setting are invited to attend face to face TPL which will focus on the practical and essential CPR and AED lifesaving skills.
