CPR FOR SCHOOLS PROGRAM
Our CPR for Schools Program is aimed at elementary school teachers from all over Poland, as well as at teachers working in Polish schools all over the world.
The language of instruction in the courses is Polish.
Since January 2008 the CPR for Schools Program has been carried out under honorary patronage of the Polish Minster of Education.
Until now, we have already trained
26 063 teachers from 12 040 schools.
Over one and a half milion children have been included in the program.
The CPR Educational program was launched in 2006. Our courses are aimed at teachers who work with youngest children, that is the teachers of the integrated teaching classes in Polish elementary schools. The program can be carried out thanks to a group of 150 Peace Patrol volunteers who have completed the instructor’s training, acquiring the official AHA qualifications. The volunteers are led by a group of instructors responsible for coordinating the courses all the year through.
Between April and June 2006, a pilot project of the program was run in Podlaskie and Dolnośląskie provinces. As the project turned out to be a spectacular success, since September 2006 the courses have been organized all over Poland on a regular basis.
Each one of our one-day, six-hour-long courses is devised for a group of 2 integrated teaching classes teachers from at least 15 elementary schools. The training sessions take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays between 9 AM and 3 PM. Aside from teaching practical skills, our Foundation provides teachers, and thus their schools, with all didactic materials needed for organizing a CPR class for their students.
With their teachers having completed our training, the children can learn the most basic rules of first aid beginning with how to call the emergency number correctly and finishing with the basic steps needed to help the victim.
