2/. We are going to ask you to teach 2 sessions to a small group (2 to 5 students), both sessions are to be pitched at students on their first FAW course.


We are happy for you to choose which sessions you would like to deliver. Please choose two from the following list.

  • Anaphylaxis
  • Shock
  • Unconsciousness
  • Asthma
  • Heart attack and angina

Where possible make your lesson interactive and interesting. At least one of your sessions must have considerable practical content for the students. Remember most students do not learn well from simply being lectured at. Aim to run sessions of about 10-15 minutes, however the exact timing is not the priority.

We look forward to meeting you on the day of your course
