BTEC Sport students learning First Aid

The Year 13 BTEC National Diploma in Sport students were fortunate enough to welcome Chris Manders, Gresham’s Health and Safety Officer, into class this week. Mr Manders delivered First Aid training to support the completion of the students Sport Injury Management unit.

Next week the students will be assessed on how to treat the following injuries:

1) a 16 year old female hurdler with an ankle sprain

2) a 14 year old male middle distance athlete with a dislocated shoulder

3) a 1st team rugby player, unconscious following a head collision

4) a 1st team footballer with a significant lower leg bleed who is suffering from shock

The students have been really engaged and we are all very appreciative of Mr Manders’ expertise.
