First Aid is a vital skill and as such is important to deliver training especially well to children. At Flat Stan® our aims are to allow children to interact, learn and have fun in a comfortable learning environment, at the same time benchmarking and meeting key stage and curricular objectives.
"The Flat Stan workshop is a brilliant programme that is informative and fun, extremely appropriate for the age group of children it is designed for and supports young children to learn basic life saving skills. The workshops are engaging and structured to give children the opportunity to develop their knowledge and confidence to be able to act in an emergency. Children who have accessed the classes that I have delivered have thoroughly enjoyed using the Flat Stan Manikins to learn CPR. Along with great resources, workbooks and with the knowledge taught, children then recognise first aid situations and are more than capable then to be able to apply the skills learnt. I think the programme is fantastic and I thoroughly enjoy delivering the training".

We have been providing First aid for children for a long time, with great reception, but have always felt that there was something missing. Flat Stan was indeed that ‘something missing’. The flat Stan manikins and materials go a long way to help keep children excited and engaged. The children can’t wait to ‘have a go’ on the manikin and really have fun whilst learning a valuable skill. The books are pitched at the right level and add an extra dimension to teaching and learning! We are so pleased to be on board with this programme and look forward to what the future brings.

"Bella come out of preschool so excited about what she had learnt with Flat Stan First Aid telling me all about what number to call, where to press the chest on flat Stan and loved showing me all the other bits in the booklet. Her certificate is pride of place on the fridge! Thanks to FlexiMed Training for making it enjoyable and fun and to Scribbles Preschool for allowing them to learn important life skills".

Flat Stan is proving to be a real hit with the kids and has already shown skills retention through making learning fun.
Let’s start at the beginning – One day Simon noticed that there was lots of First Aid for grownups but not much around for children. So he decided to change this and Simon created a new training concept - Flat Stan First Aid – Essential Life Skills for Children! With lots of fun!
After a lot of thought and enthusiasm Flat Stan was launched and thousands of children across the UK have now been introduced to First Aid with the help of Flat Stan. It is our mission to help more children across the UK and beyond learn these Essential Life Skills. As a way of helping children and communities less fortunate than our own we are working with a charity in Ghana, First Intervention Ghana, and together we have already started to teach children in West Africa.
We know children can make a difference in an emergency situation and these skills will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
