It is designed for people wishing to become a paediatric first aider in the workplace with a responsibility for the welfare of infants and children. This qualification is intended for those already working or preparing to work in the Early Years sector, such as schools, nurseries, child care, childminding, afterschool clubs, activity centres and crèches. Current staff must have a valid Paediatric First Aid qualification and new entrants have to get qualified within three months of starting work.

This Paediatric First Aid course is normally held over two days and meets the requirements of the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) for staff who need to have at least 12 hours of paediatric first aid training.

The course consists of two units, Emergency Paediatric First Aid and Managing Paediatric Illness, Injuries and Emergencies, which our highly skilled instructors teach in a interactive and engaging manner.

On the course candidates will learn the essential first aid skills to deal with young children, including CPR, resuscitation, dealing with choking, bleeding, asthma, allergic reactions and much more. You can be safe in the knowledge that people who have trained with us will be given the knowledge to act in an emergency involving this age group.

Learners gaining this qualification will get the practical skills needed to ensure that they can carry out their first aid responsibilities in the working environment.  The topics covered help to maintain good practice in the treatment of injuries and health emergencies  of infants and children.

Everybody who completes the course successfully is awarded an Ofsetd recognised certificate which is valid for three years.
