HoT 'n' Deadly! First Aid Training

HoT ‘n’ Deadly! First Aid Training targets High school students in Years 9-12 from low SES rural areas.

The objectives of the HoT ‘n’ Deadly! First Aid Training are to:

  • Provide high school students with life long skills in first aid;
  • Maintain and build new relationships with students and staff from other rural schools;
  • Inform students about paramedic career opportunities in their local area;
  • Provide positive role models of paramedic students and local paramedics who share their professional and life stories with students to build aspirations;
  • Provide opportunities for paramedic students to engage with people in rural areas.

The project addresses many of the barriers for rural students to participate in higher education and the intention of the project is to build students’ interest in a career in paramedicine that offers them a range of employment opportunities in their local communities.

Paramedic students within the School of Medical and Health Sciences at Edith Cowan University will assist with the first aid training and be invited to present short anecdotes on their experience as paramedics and why they decided to continue their education.
