LOCHABER High School third year pupils re­cently com­pleted a one- day emer­gency first-aid at work course with Emer­gency Ac­tion Train­ing.

The pupils are now equipped with the skills and knowl­edge to pro­vide life­sav­ing first aid.

Sup­ported by De­vel­op­ing the Young Work­force (DYW) West High­land, 24 pupils were in­volved in the course aimed at de­vel­op­ing skills for the world of work.

Com­ment­ing on the day, an Emer­gency Ac­tion Train­ing spokesper­son said: ‘De­vel­op­ing the Young Work­force is an ex­cel­lent pro­gramme and it has been a plea­sure to have been able to work along­side DYW West High­land to de­liver first-aid train­ing to Lochaber High School stu­dents.

‘Ev­ery one of them worked hard and de­served their cer­tifi­cates. Lochaber High School is a won­der­ful learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment and for them to look at giv­ing stu­dents the op­por­tu­nity to gain life skills be­fore en­ter­ing the work­force should be com­mended.

‘If ev­ery sec­ondary school al­lowed their stu­dents to take a first-aid course it would cre­ate a coun­try of life­savers in a short time.’

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion on the op­por­tu­nites avail­able, con­tact DYW West High­land on 01397 705765 info@ dy­wwest­high­land.org.
