Heartstart and its links to the National Curriculum

As part of our vision to create a nation of life savers, we support hundreds of Heartstart schemes to train 120,000 schoolchildren a year.

To support your Heartstart scheme, we've provided links to the National Curriculum. They'll help:

  • you promote Heartstart to schools
  • teachers see how schoolchildren will benefit from the training.

We know that Heartstart courses in schools help meet the needs of their curriculum. From understanding the fundamentals of human anatomy and physiology, learning skills for work and life, to developing confidence, empathy for others and the chance to develop communication and debating skills, Heartstart offers teachers around the UK, the opportunity to make a broad range of links with the National Curriculum.
