Course Overview:

This combined first aid course is perfect for those working in schools or other childcare settings where both qualified First Aid at Work and Paediatric First Aiders are required. This course is also recommended for first aiders who work in environments that may include both adults and children such as youth groups and sports clubs.

This comprehensive course covering adult, child and baby first aid guidelines has been designed to reduce the number of training days required to achieve both qualifications. Students who successfully complete this course will receive two Ofqual regulated qualifications:

  • QA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work
  • QA Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (RQF)


What’s more, both qualifications are accredited by Qualsafe Awards and meet the requirements of:

  • Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981
  • Ofsted
  • The Department for Education
  • Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework
  • NVQ in Childcare and Education


Assessment and Requalification:

Learners will be continually assessed throughout the duration of the course, with successful candidates receiving both a QA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work certificate and a QA Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (RQF) certificate. Both qualifications are valid for a period of 3 years.


Refresher Training:

HSE guidelines now state that employers should ensure that all qualified first aiders ‘remain competent to perform their role’. In order for an employer to meet this requirement, it is strongly recommended that first aiders attend annual refresher training.


Why Choose First on Scene?

With years of experience dealing with real life emergencies, our expert trainers can draw on their own first aid experiences to make learning fun and memorable. This ensures that Learners leave with the confidence and vital lifesaving skills needed to deal with a wide range of emergency situations.
