Thornbeck College

Thornbeck College is an Independent Specialist College providing personalised programmes to autistic and neurodivergent individuals

Working together to inspire, support, celebrate and equip autistic and neurodivergent people to fulfil their potential in life.

Learners celebrated World First Aid Day on September 13th by attending a First Aid workshop delivered by a member of the North East Autism Society's Training and Development Team.

Learners participated in a range of activities including: applying a plaster and a bandage, using an EpiPen, supporting someone into the recovery position and completing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

Increasing their knowledge and understanding in relation to administering appropriate first aid in a range of situations has supported the development of their personal safety skills.
