First Response is a basic first aid training programme co-owned jointly by Girlguiding and the Scouts and available to members of both organisations. Within the syllabus and training plan Girlguiding and the Scouts have identified what content can be delivered online (via zoom) and what is required to be demonstrated.
Module 10A covers the online learning of 1st Response and is split into three two-hour zoom sessions – 1) Life Support, 2) Major Illness, 3) Trauma and Injury. (These three can be done in any order)
Module 10B is the practical demonstration of specific parts of the Life Support section. (This can only be done when 10A is completed)
Module 10A: Session 2 – Major illness. This covers
To be able to understand the symptoms and signs for:
c) Heart Attack
g) Sepsis / Meningitis
To understand the planning and preparation needed for members with known conditions / illnesses and to know where to look for help and advice from other sources related to these conditions / illnesses.
When you first join as an adult volunteer, many roles require you to undertake a minimum level of first aid training (for some as part of your Wood Badge.) Once completed, you will need to keep your first aid current, through attending training every three years.
What if I have a current First Aid certificate – do I still need to do 1st Response? Possibly not. We have provided the list of requirements of 1st Response training. If you have recently done a course which meets these requirements, (or most of them) then you simply need to offer this as evidence to your Local Training Manager (LTM) or Training Adviser.

The syllabus has recently been adapted and now focused on conditions where prompt recognition and/or life-saving treatment is required. In addition, some conditions have been included because they occur most frequently on incident/accident reports submitted to both the Scouts and Girlguiding.
Our trainers will add some additional content not listed on the syllabus and this will be made clear to participants and will not detract from the core syllabus and training plan.
The zoom link will be emailed to you at least 24 hours before the session. Please look out for it – it may be in your spam folder!
