Scout & Girlguiding – 1st Response First Aid

Our 6 hour Scout & Girlguiding 1st Response First Aid course has been mapped to match the requirements of the first aid syllabuses set by both movements.

The syllabus requirements noted on the Girlguiding website mean that this is a fast paced course. For a slightly slower paced course, allowing for a greater level of detail, please book on to our Scout & Girlguiding Full First Aid course.

Course duration:

  • The guidance is that this course should be run over a minimum of 6 hours with the instructor. We feel that there is a lot to learn during the 6 hours, so we also offer this as a two day course for those who want greater face-to-face training.


  • Practical assessments throughout the course & knowledge test at the end.


  • Attendees will be required to demonstrate first aid procedures as they would in a real activity environment. This includes providing CPR to a casualty who is on the floor, therefore you must be physically capable of doing so.
  • It’s recommended that candidates have a minimum of GSCE D/Level 2 in literacy and numeracy before undertaking this course.
  • The course is aimed at those over 18 who are looking to undertake the responsibilities associated with being a Scout or Girlguide first aider. The course can also be undertaken by candidates over 14 years old, but they mustn’t be relied upon to be the group/event first aider.


  • All courses have a minimum and maximum number of candidates that we can take on a course.
    • Minimum: We need a minimum of 4 candidates booked on an open/scheduled course for the course to run. Click here for more details.
    • Maximum: We are limited by the Health & Safety Executive to a maximum of 12 candidates per instructor for workplace first aid courses and we mirror this across all our courses. Should you have more than 12 candidates to be trained, please contact us to arrange a private course, where we can arrange for a second instructor/assessor to be present for your course.
