About Us

We aim to make a real difference in Hull

Lessons 4 Life was formed in April 2017. The company directors, who have a background in education and the emergency services, believe that first aid is a vital lifesaving skill that should be taught to everyone. 1445 children die from preventable deaths each year yet 32% of these deaths are avoidable. We aim to deliver emergency first aid training to pupils and community groups in Hull. Pupils who are confident in first aid grow into adults and parents who are able to give lifesaving treatment to prevent unecessary deaths.

Our first aid training sessions will make sure that children/adults have the skills they need to deal with life threatening situations which may arise in school, at home, work places, and in the community for family, friends and peers. This will create a unique environment where every memeber of the Hull community has the vital skills necessary to help save a life.

We only use instructors who have many years experience of working for the Emergency Services. We are experienced professionals who are qualified to give training which is knowledgeable, medically accurate, current and informative.

"In my capacity as PSHCE co-ordinator at Beverley High School, I commissioned Lessons 4 Life to delivery 'what to do in an emergency' training to the whole of year 10 during a wellbeing day. The pupils were all engaged, enthused and completed the sessions fully equipped and eager to make a difference in such emergency situations."
