Paediatric First Aid

Course introduction

This 12 Hour Paediatric First Aid course meets the requirements specified by OFSTED and the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). The Paediatric First Aid course can be used as evidence for an NVQ in childcare and education. This course also meets the requirements of the appointed person in the workplace.

Who Should Attend This Course?

The Paediatric First Aid course is perfect for anyone who is working with children and infants. It will be of particular interest to teachers, child minders, crèche assistants, playgroup personnel, nannies, Nursery workers, Pre-school workers, parents, grandparents and anyone else who has a responsibility for a child’s or infant’s welfare whilst in your care.

The Paediatric First Aid certificate is valid for 3 years from the date of the training.

The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) and the FAIB (First Aid Industry Body) strongly recommends that Paediatric first aiders at work undergo a First Aid Annual Refresher Course to maintain their skills and keep up to date with any changes to first aid legislation and procedures.
