Statement for Instructors, Coaches, Leaders and Guides

We would encourage you to read the following Government guidance in order to develop strategies if the current situation should change. 

Government guidance 

First Aid 

You are encouraged to read the guidance provided by the Resuscitation Council on both delivery of First Aid and performing First Aid available here: https://www.resus.org.uk/media/statements/resuscitation-council-uk-statements-on-covid-19-coronavirus-cpr-and-resuscitation/

If your First Aid Training is due to expire in the coming months, you should consider if it is appropriate to renew your First Aid ahead of its expiry. If your First Aid expires and you are unable to access appropriate training, please contact your deployer to consider alternative First Aid cover, for example team teaching.

Managing your participants

The guidance is clear that hand washing is essential in the protection of your health and preventing the spread of the virus, careful consideration should be given to ensuring venues have hot running water and washing facilities with alcohol gel (or wipes if gel unavailable) provided in addition to handwashing facilities. For venues without this option you must ensure appropriate alternative measures are in place.

Cancellation Policies

We recommend you review your cancellation policies and ensure your position is clear, you are advising your learners of that position at the time of booking and that your arrangement is balanced, fair and two way, e.g. what happens if you cancel the activity due to your own inability to provide the activity.
