As a primary and secondary school teacher, Samantha has dealt with a range of first-aid situations. First-aid training gave Samantha the confidence to respond quickly and calmly to a medical emergency within the classroom and she saw first-hand how valuable learning these skills can be. In addition to gaining the knowledge and confidence to deal with medical emergencies, she has also found a new passion in first aid and home safety. Samantha is thrilled to be working as a Mini First Aid trainer to teach these vital lifesaving skills to all ages in a fun and interactive way. She loves being able to help others feel more confident and competent in dealing with any potential first-aid situations that they may be faced with.
I cannot recommend Mini First Aid enough. Kate ran a private class for me and my 11 year old daughter in the comfort of our own home, which was perfect especially as my babies are due any day now. My daughter and I feel much more confident in knowing what to do in a range of emergency situations and I also got some extra twin tips from Kate as a fellow twin Mum! It's such an important life skill that every parent and carer should have so I would urge you to book a Mini First Aid course today.
"We are so glad we have done a Mini First Aid class. We enjoyed the class, found it really useful and feel so much more prepared in the build up to having our baby.”
At Bignold Primary School (Norwich, Norfolk), we had the pleasure of working with Rachael from Mini First Aid. At all times, she was engaging and enthusiastic, guiding the children to participate in all of the practical aspects of the training - and generating some great discussions! Parents have been really supportive of their children's involvement, with both pupils and staff finding the whole experience to be fantastic. We hope to continue working with Mini First Aid in future! Year 5 teacher, Bignold Primary School and Nursery
The Mini First Aid Class (filmed for ITVBe) was a fantastic class, both Arg and I found it a really good and informative session
Absolutely brilliant first aid course I have just had round a family members house! Lovely person, easy to talk to, answered all of my questions and made us all feel relaxed! Thank you very much for making me feel more confident in first aid! I feel this first aid course is a must if you have children/ if your looking after children!
This weekend, I along with my Mother attended the 2 hour Baby and Child First Aid session. We thought the session was absolutely great, arriving with zero knowledge on first aid for little ones we now both feel so much more confident in dealing with an emergency situation. Joe was great and extremely knowledgeable on all information given and everything was explained in a way that was easy to process and take on board. I can’t recommend this 2 hour course enough and will certainly be telling friends and family about it!
I loved this course. I have attended others in the past but felt overwhelmed with how much I needed to know. Joe was fantastic and I learnt so much. The course was interesting and relaxed and we really enjoyed it. Thank you!
Had a mini first aid course with Anna on Sunday and it was amazing!! Learnt so much in the 2 hours and covered everything that I would worry about facing! Anna was lovely and answered any questions the group had. I would def recommend doing this course. March 2020
"I learned so much from the Mini First Aid adult awareness class. I feel confident about what to do in a range of first aid situations or emergencies. For the first time, I’ve seen images of what burns look like on black and brown as well as white skin. I know what signs to look for if a child is choking, as these can look different, depending on your skin colour. Thanks Mini First Aid for making your classes relevant to everyone".
Holly, our trainer was an excellent facilitator. The session was informative and enjoyable, and the class size made it feel accessible and easy for everyone to get stuck in. Holly's first-hand experience in the field, coupled with being a parent made the information really palatable and relatable. She made sure to have inclusive material which was perfect for the multicultural group we were in. I'd highly recommend the class if you want to arm yourself with the confidence to respond to a child in an emergency situation.
Mini First Aid is a great fit for our brand and we have been delighted to partner with them on a number of initiatives. We offer our customers a Mini First Aid class when they sign up for a Junior ISA*. Empowering families through free first aid courses alongside our accessible Junior ISA product, we prioritise their well-being and financial security. A successful competition in the Spring gave us the opportunity to market our products to Mini First Aid's 150,000 followers, and we saw a really positive impact on engagement with both existing and new customers. *T&C’s apply.
St Joseph’s School, Wetherby (Early Years class) Our Nursery class love to get involved in whole-school curriculum enrichment activities but First Aid for 3-4 year olds? Even for our well-seasoned teachers, this sounded like a tall order. How wrong we were! Our sessions with Claire were absolutely brilliant. Skillful teaching, great resources, clear messages and important safety information; empowering our children to feel like mini first aiders. With the help of Max the teddy, we learned simple first aid techniques for cuts, scrapes and head bumps; as well as learning how to make someone comfortable by lying them on their side if they are very poorly. We learned about how you may need to phone 999 in an emergency and that you need to know your address. The children absolutely loved The ‘Mini Adventures of Freddie’ story which brought everything together perfectly. Thank-you Claire. Never underestimate 3-4 year olds! They really can save lives!
I attended this baby and child first aid class yesterday and would highly recommend it to anyone with children. Very straight forward and informative. Amazing value for money too.
We have been working with Mini First Aid since 2017 on various platforms. Most recently, we ran a highly successful campaign with a 3 pronged approach - the first was to educate more parents about sensitive skin via a Mini First Aid blog, newsletter feature and podcast, the second was to team up on a brand awareness competition via social media, and the third was to reach a wider audience by giving out free Childs Farm samples to hundreds of parents whilst they were learning life-saving first aid. It was a great way to reach our target audience with a multichannel approach.
We did the 2 hour course today in readiness for our baby’s arrival. Joe was brilliant, the course is packed with usual info and hugely confidence-building to be able to practise your technique should anything did go wrong. Thanks so much!
Fantastic course, delivered brilliantly by Joe. Thank you for giving me more confidence to know what to do in emergency situations! Cannot recommend this class highly enough! Thank goodness for real life superheroes like Joe!
Excellent course ran today in Diss by Joe! So glad we attended. I personally from the 2 hours feel so much more confident in not only infant and child 1st aid, but also feel confident the basic skills learnt tonight can be used in emergency to adults too ! Well organised and expertly delivered by Joe who really knows his stuff. Any questions or situations you’ve dealt with Joe will have the advice needed. Fantastic value for such and excellent course. It takes 2 hours and could save a life! Thanks a lot Joe
There are a gazillion things I never seem to get around to doing (fixing the broken blind in our bedroom, getting some photos printed of ‘the baby’ who is almost two but still doesn’t exist on our walls, pinning down the coffee date I’ve been promising my neglected friend via WhatsApp for at least 6 months…) BUT this morning I finally got my arse in gear and ticked off something from my ‘Really Must Do’ list by attending a First Aid class designed specifically for parents, grandparents and carers of babies and young children. It took just two hours out of my morning and covered a whole host of stuff including what to do if a child is choking, how to deal with burns/breaks/bleeding and the basics of life-saving CPR for kids.
Did the Mini First Aid at Wymondham today with Joe and it was brilliant. Loved Joe’s serious but relaxed approach to dealing with children who won’t necessarily sit still while you tend to them! You can tell he’s got 3 kids of his own. But that’s important..he understands the challenges and that children and babies aren’t just mini adults. They can’t always tell you when something is wrong. Really pleased I did the course and would recommend it to EVERYONE with children of any age. Most important thing I learnt today – when doing CPR you are more than likely not doing it hard enough so use appropriate but stronger than you think force to pump the heart. Thanks again Joe
Mini First Aid really are the best for all your first aid needs! I found the company online through researching baby first aid products and the reviews were so great that I had to buy and try, and I was so impressed! The first aid kits really are so extensive! I want to say a huge thank you to Angie from Mini First Aid for coming to our home to teach my family and I baby first aid! I had some basic knowledge but it didn’t compare to the hands on approach in our class where we got to practice techniques. Angie was incredible and so patient with us, and the lesson was invaluable to us as new parents!
Bionical have been working with Mini First Aid since 2022, and we couldn't be happier with the relationship. Following expansion and a global pandemic, we were looking for a way to maintain the highest standards of compliance in training for our nursing staff across the UK, whilst maximising efficiency of delivery. It has been lovely working with Mini First Aid who have supported Bionical to maintain compliance and service excellence, whilst being a completely stress-free process. Thank you to both the Head Office administrative team, as well as all your franchisees and trainers.
The [Mini First Aid] course was wonderful – truly something that all parents should do.
One afternoon, we were enjoying a day out in the sunshine and had stopped to feed our daughter of 7 months, she’s just started solid food and we’d been giving her sliced banana to chew on. On this particular day, she inhaled a small piece and began to choke. I quickly remembered Martin’s words, put her in the proper hold, bottom in the air and one forceful strike between her shoulder blades dislodged the banana and although she was shocked, she was able to breathe again and I can’t tell you how relieved we felt! It may have only been 10 seconds in which she couldn’t breathe but it was terrifying. Had I not had the training from Martin and Mini First Aid, I cannot even begin to imagine how differently the situation could have turned out. In fact, I’d go as far to say that the training I received enabled me to save our daughter’s life.
It was a pleasure meeting Kate and Jacky from Mini First Aid and being taught what to do in case of an emergency. Learning CPR and what to do when a child is choking is invaluable. Obviously, I hope I never had to use the things I learned in today’s class, but horrible things happen and knowing these techniques can really make a huge difference. The class was fun and accessible given the seriousness of the topic. I would highly recommend everyone doing it.
Well paced, excellent/easy to follow content and baby/breastfeeding friendly too! As a first time mother- I always have in the back of my mind “what if”….. today’s course was a real reassurance that I would have the basic tools at my disposal and know what to do in an emergency, CPR or even minor injury event (cuts, bumps etc). I cant recommend this course highly enough…. for only £20 it’s the biggest reassurance you can buy. The course leader is a brilliant guy, friendly – informative and helpful. Do it today.
25 Aug 20 - Paediatric first Aid, A relaxed and informative course, it felt safe in the current circumstances (Covid-19)
I recently attended a 2 hour Baby and Child First Aid session along with my husband and our parents. We all found the session extremely useful and we all now feel very confident in dealing with an emergency situation with a baby or child. Joe is very relaxed but very knowledgable and able to talk from first hand experience too from both a personal and professional level. I felt the course offered everything we would need to know and was presented in such a way that it was easy to process and take on board. We feel so pleased that we have attended and will definitely be recommending the session to family and friends.
We have seen hundreds of clients go through the Infection Control Course and heard nothing but positive feedback. They were able to do everything in their own time and now have the ability to promote their certificate/badge to all current and future customers which has helped them secure both venues and new clients. I would highly recommend anyone that is running a children's activities business to complete this course.
25 Aug 20 - Blended Paediatric First Aid - 'Amazing amount of detail, best first aid course I have attended (I have attended 5 in total)
BRILLIANT! Very happy we had a private class at my house with family and friends! Given me real confidence after my child has been unwell. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to do first aid!
Sky are always looking for ways to better support their staff and Parents@Sky Network offers support and benefits to staff who are parents. I came across Mini First Aid through a Facebook promotion and there was a huge demand for the Infant and Child First Aid class which was shared on our internal and external social channels. The communication and organisation of the event was excellent - Sarah-Lou was professional, engaging and even injected some parent style humour! The class was interactive and educational - everyone took something away from it including much more confidence in dealing with any emergencies which could arise with their little ones. The feedback received on the back of it was amazing! It was a great success and hopefully something we can do again, and potentially roll out to other sites in the UK. Thank you Mini First Aid, you were a pleasure to deal with!
This weekend myself and five mummy friends had a private Mini First Aid session from the comfort of my own home. Now I’ve done it I can’t believe I hadn’t done it sooner, what a no-brainer!! It’s a great feeling knowing that I’d know what to do should a situation arise. All in all, I can’t recommend it enough so get your session booked in now!”

A brilliant, informal and well-presented (easy to understand) course, and absolutely essential for anyone who has kids or even just looks after them once in a while. I’ve been wanting to do something like this ever since having my son (5 years ago) but not got round to it, which is ridiculous…why wait for something horrid to happen to spur you on to learn what you should’ve done! Absolutely brilliant and highly recommended. The booklet to take away is also really handy too. Thank you very much, 2 hours and £20 very well spent
