The Ambulance Academy contains everything the younger generations of our society need to know about careers in the ambulance service, being healthy, learning lifesaving skills and staying safe in three handy sections:
Children’s area (4-10 year-olds) – We’ve got lots of information and activities for the youngest members of our communities, from what to do when somebody is hurt, and they need our help to how to stay safe. Whether they just like seeing our ambulances and the flashing blue lights or want to know the ins and outs – we’ve got all they need to know about the ambulance service. We hope you or they never need us now or when they are older, but just in case they do, we want them to be prepared. Don’t miss our 360-degree video showing the inside of an ambulance, Panda’s Puzzle downloadable crossword, colouring in sheets and much more.
Young adult’s area (11-18 year-olds) – Do you know any budding paramedics, emergency medical technicians, nurses, mechanics or press officers? If so, we have all the information in this section they will need to start planning their careers in the ambulance service and what options they may want to start thinking about in school.
We have information on apprenticeships, volunteering, tips on applying for a job and a quiz on what career might suit them. In this area, they will also find advice about mental health, sexual health, road safety and staying safe when out and about.
Adult’s area (educators/parents/carers) – This section is designed to be helpful to our region’s teachers, parents, guardians or carers as they are our main influencers for educating our children on the ambulance service.
Don’t miss our downloadable lesson plans for early years, key stages 1 and 2, and a secondary PSHE lesson plan and resources. You can also find a guide on how to show young people first aid and a step-by-step guide on how to do CPR to support the 12+ Health Education curriculum.
Our Ambulance Academy has all the information your child needs to know about calling 999. We hope you love it as much as we do!
