Overview

This accredited course has been specifically designed to meet the criteria set by the Department for Education’s Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework and is ideal for:

  • Those who have gained a level 2 and/or level 3 childcare qualification and have entered into an early years setting and wish to be included in the staff to child ratios to comply with EYFS requirements.
  • Registered childminders and assistants who are required to hold a current and full paediatric first aid certificate in order to comply with the EYFS requirements.
  • Anyone who has a non-professional involvement with infants and children, such as parents, grandparents and want to learn key paediatric first aid skills.

Successful candidates will learn the roles and responsibilities of the Paediatric First Aider, and will be equipped with the necessary skills to administer safe and effective treatment when dealing with a range of Paediatric first aid situations.

Due to the government regulations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are only allowing a maximum of 8 people per course. We can arrange for a combination of Virtual Learning and Practical Training, as well as allowing you to book out the centre for your group, or arrange for us to come to you.
