First Aid Provision in GME 

Module 10 – First Response

First Response training is a key resource in any leader’s toolkit. The course will allow you to explore the role of a first aider within a Scouting context, how to manage an unconscious casualty, causes of unconsciousness and treatment for minor ailments. This online resource will guide you through the theory of each of these key concepts. You do not have to complete the online training session and can return to it. The course is designed to be completed in 2.5 hours but will depend on past experience, once successfully completed you will need to attend a 3 hour face to face session to validate modules 10A and 10B. This is the only method to gain your first response requirements, unless you are part of an exempted occupation or hold an equivalent external course.

The link to the online First Aid training can be found here




Once you have completed Hampshire's online training please book on to the face to face session found through our County Calendar. The completion of both allows us to sign off Modules 10A and 10B or your MOL - First Aid.

Please note if you complete Hampshire's virtual validation of 10A you will still need to attend the face to face to complete 10B.


Professions with First Aid experience

The Scout Association does recognise that some professions by the nature of the job will have a first aid element; for example Nurses, Midwives, Police Officers, Medical Practitioners, Members of HM Armed Forces, Ambulance Care – Assistants/Paramedics/Technicians, etc. to exempt these profession from undergoing more first aid training, they are required to provide evidence of an up-to-date qualification which should meet the criteria for what is considered our minimum standard.  With regards to ‘evidence’, this can be a certificate or an official letter confirming the necessary areas have been met.  

This evidence will then need to be uploaded here so that your compass record can be updated accordingly.

Greater Manchester East's First Aid provision is run by a team led by David Copeland (Deputy County Training Manager-First Aid) 

I have been in Scouts (and in this role!) since 2016. Prior to this I used to volunteer for another charity delivering First Aid training to young people. I have a passion for showing people the basic knowledge in how to save a life. In my day job I am a teacher in a college and I thoroughly enjoy watching others grow and develop new skills. I am proud to work with my team of First Aid trainers. We strive to ensure you have a high-quality training experience and all are experts in their field with a skill set ranging from Community First Responders to Paramedics and A&E Nurses.   

I hope you enjoy the online learning and if you do have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch!
