St John Ambulance is now an Approved Activity Provider for the
We're excited to announce that we are now an Approved Activity
Provider (AAP) for the skills section of The Duke of Edinburgh's
Award. We are one of only 21 organisations, including Oxfam, to
have this status.
AAPs are organisations whose opportunities for young people have
been approved by the DofE and can count towards the Award.
Our new status as an AAP will enable us to reach even more young
people doing their DofE, especially those who aren't St John
Meeting the highest standards
First aid is the fifth most popular activity for DofE
participants to complete for their skills section. As an AAP, young
people who want to learn first aid with us will know that our
programme meets the highest standards set by the DofE.
Free first aid resources
To meet the DofE’s requirements, we have produced a first aid self-teach workbook, free to download
from our website. The workbook provides young people with
everything they need to learn about first aid for the skills
section of the Award. It includes suggested activities, worksheets,
and case studies. This enables them to put together their own
schedule of activity to complete the skills section.
This is only the start, over time we plan to get more of our
activities officially approved, including our volunteering
opportunities for young people.
