CPD - Medication Awareness Training for Schools

Efficiently trained staff will reduce the risk of harm to both students and staff. By following the guidelines set by The Department for Education & Skills and The Department of Health, this course ensures participants are given the best training and provides a sound knowledge of medication uses, as well as touching specialist treatments for specific illnesses in children.


  • Learn the legal responsibilities for school governors to teaching staff and parents
  • Learn how to look after children who self medicate, how to handle an emergency situation and covertly administer medication
  • Learn how to read pharmacist’s labels, how to deliver, store and dispose of medication

It’s a great introduction to administering medication in schools or a handy refresher – However, in order to administer medication to children in schools you need formal training from an NHS practitioner, this course is not a substitute for this training.
