The Principles of medication administration in schools course is aimed at anyone who may contribute to supporting children with medical conditions in schools, including maintained schools, academies and pupil referral units (PRUs).

This course will provide a sound background to medication use in schools, including assisting with specialist tasks such as giving insulin injections. However, it does not replace any specialist advice you may be given from specialist nurses, specialist training courses or being shown techniques by other health professionals who may work with the child. The course will, however, give you a great understanding of medical conditions, medications, the legal framework and guidance surrounding medication use in schools, plus equip schools to put effective systems in place to support individual children.

  • Identify the key points of current legislation and guidance relating to medication
  • Understand different types of medicine available and why they are used
  • Understand how to support a learner who self-medicates
  • Module 1: Legislation and guidance
  • Module 2: Medical conditions and medications
  • Module 3: Administering medications in schools

The programme is carried out using a comprehensive blended learning resource pack which can be kept to record a staff member's development in the subject. Assessment is through a multiple choice question paper and completion of an activity workbook.
