Paediatric First Aid (Blended)

Event/course Code EDU 20/307
Event/course type Training course
Event Introduction The Paediatric First Aid training course is designed for people caring for children in any organisation setting. It is suitable for au pairs, nannies, childminders, school staff, nursery and pre-school workers, sport and leisure staff, crèche leaders, parents and anyone responsible for the welfare of children.

In order to meet the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework at least one person who has a current 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 assistants, who might be in sole charge of the children for any period of time, must hold a current paediatric first aid certificate.

This course is being delivered using a blended approach; delegates must first complete the e-learning component (which equates to the first day of study) and print and bring the certificate of completion to the second part of the training which will be delivered via a face-to-face session. In order to be awarded the certificate of attendance, delegates must complete the full duration of both components and exhibit that they have achieved the required learning.

The blended approach courses are only suitable for those who have sat a full Paediatric First Aid course previously.
Event Content Paediatric first aid training is relevant for workers caring for young children and where appropriate, babies. Providers should take into account the number of children, staff and layout of premises to ensure that a paediatric first aider is able to respond to emergencies quickly.
