Paediatric First Aid

2 Day Course

About This Course

When it comes to babies and children, the provision of first aid must be adapted accordingly to avoid further harm. At Community Education Skills 4 Life, in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, we run an all-inclusive paediatric first aid course. It has been designed specifically for individuals who provide care for babies and children under the age of 8. The course syllabus has been designed in accordance with the UK resuscitation guidelines (2010) and meets the requirements of: • Ofsted • Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Statutory Framework • Pre-School Learning Alliance • National Child Minders Association (NCMA) • Sure Start • NVQ in Childcare and Education • Independent Children’s Homes Association (ICHA) Course Details This 12-hour course is run over two days. All students will learn a high level of practical skill and theoretical knowledge so that they can deal promptly and competently with situations that may arise when caring for children and babies. The course is ideal for registered childminders in England and Wales as they are required to have a paediatric first aid certificate. It is also suitable for any worker that provides care for babies and children under 8 years old, including parents, nannies, au pairs, nursery workers, and playgroup leaders. People working towards an NVQ or CACHE in child care and education (level 3) may also use the course as evidence.
