From 2015, this course will be renamed Paediatric first aid.
The first aid for child carers/paediatric first aid training course is designed for people caring for children in any setting. It is suitable for au pairs, nannies, childminders, nursery and pre-school workers, sport and leisure staff, crèche leaders, parents and anyone responsible for the welfare of children.
The child carers/paediatric first aid training course is recognised by Ofsted and includes the requirements of the appointed person in the workplace. In-line with the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, it can be used as evidence for an NVQ in childcare and education.
We offer first aid training for every need, including a range of courses for members of the public. The most popular first aid for baby and child course is perfect for new and expectant parents, grandparents and carers.
On completion of the course, a certificate will be issued which is valid for 3 years.
Candidates must be physically able to carry out the procedures detailed in the course outline.
Child carers must hold a valid paediatric first aid certificate.
