We, the undersigned, hereby call upon the Welsh
Government to make it compulsory for all pupils in their GCSE years
to undergo basic First Aid training.
We believe that first aid is an essential life saving skill that every young person has the right to have and as such should become a compulsory part of secondary education. Being trained in first aid can carry a lot of responsibility but has a lot of benefits. In dangerous situations first aid training can make the difference between life or death. So just knowing how to put someone in the recovery position or even by calling an ambulance effectively can save lives.
