1 week course
This short session builds on the skills and knowledge gained during the Lancashire Lifesavers course. This progression course provides learners with the knowledge and basic lifesaving skills needed to effectively assess and treat someone who is not breathing. The skills will include how to conduct the primary survey and deliver cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on an adult, child and baby and how to access and use a defibrillator.
How long is the course?
2.5 hours over one session / week.
What will I learn?
By the end of the course, learners will be able to:
1. Demonstrate how to perform a primary survey.
2. Demonstrate the correct technique to deliver effective cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
3. Compare the different techniques used in adult, child and baby CPR.
4. Discuss how to access and use a defibrillator.
5. Access apps, websites and/or the college virtual learning environment for further learning.
6. Identify appropriate progression opportunities.
How will the course be assessed?
Learners attend via the online platform on a set day and time. The session will be delivered live and learners will be supported to work through the course content. In addition to this, learners will be given access to Moodle (VLE – Virtual Learning Environment) so activities can be completed between sessions to assess for learning.
During the session they will be learning in a variety of ways:
Meeting other learners and teacher.
Sharing what has been learnt on the course.
Question and answering techniques.
Engaging in practical activities*.
Actively listening, observing and discussing.
Completing online documentation.
Accessing apps and websites for further learning opportunities.
Materials and other information
So the course can start on time, it’s important to be ready to join your online course 15 minutes prior to the official start time.
It would be useful to have a pen and paper so you can make notes throughout the course
* If learners are physically able to, there is an opportunity to practise CPR during this session which will involve kneeling on the floor. Learners must let the teacher know if they are unable to participate in the practical activities.
A large cushion or firm pillow will be required for practising the adult CPR techniques.
If learners have a doll or teddy these can used instead of a manikin when practising the correct techniques for children and babies. The teacher will guide and assess learners during these activities.
Learners are asked to wear appropriate clothing when participating in the practical floor activities.
The Additional Learning Support Team work across college supporting students with a variety of learning needs in different ways. Support can be requested at enrolment or at any point throughout your course. For more information email email@example.com

Progression and Careers
The teacher will use a range of activities to review learner’s knowledge throughout the course and identify any gaps and additional information required
Learners will receive feedback in order to further develop their knowledge
Learners will assess their knowledge at the start of the course and again at the end against the learning outcomes. This allows them to identify how much they have learnt and where they might need to do further study or research.
Learners will also be supported to set an individual target(s) for the course based on personal goals and aspirations.
