Asthma training

Asthma is the most common long-term medical condition in children and young people and sadly, every year, children continue to avoidably die from asthma.

The NHS has training available for all who care for children and young people with asthma to help improve their understanding and awareness of the issue.

The e-learning for health website has free online training for all levels of professionals who work with children and young people (CYP) with asthma.

We encourage anyone who supports children and young people to complete this free online training. This may include, but is not limited to:

  • teachers and school support staff;
  • youth workers;
  • children’s group leaders (e.g. wraparound and holiday clubs, uniform groups, sports and hobby clubs);
  • staff working in Children and Family Centres;
  • social care and housing staff;
  • parents, carers, and friends of young people with asthma.
