Aims & Objectives

This 1-day Emergency Paediatric First Aid Course covers the practical skills required to save the life of an infant or child during the event of an emergency.  The aim of this course is to provide these persons with a sound knowledge and understanding of Emergency First Aid procedures when working with children and babies.

The Emergency Paediatric First Aid Course is recognised by Ofsted for Early Years (EYFS) and meets Childcare Registration requirements.

Who should attend?

This 1-day Emergency Paediatric First Aid Course is suitable for newly qualified level two or three early years childcare staff, child minders, nursery & school staff and anybody who deals with children and infants.

If you don’t need first aid training for work reasons but would like to learn first aid for babies and children, then this 1-day Course is perfect for new and expectant parents, grandparents and carers.

Please note
In line with EYFS and Childcare Register requirements, at least one person who has a current full paediatric first aid certificate must be on the premises and available at all times when children are present, and must accompany children on outings.

Childminders, and any assistant who might be in sole charge of the children for any period of time, must hold a current full paediatric first aid certificate.
