Course Overiew

Early years (paediatric) first aid training course

This Ofqual regulated paediatric first aid course is ideal for those who work or intend to work in a childcare setting as it has been specifically designed to fulfil Ofsted’s first aid requirements for early years teachers, nursery workers and childminders (as defined within the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage 2014 and within the Child Care Register guide). It is also ideal for parents, nannies and au pairs who regularly look after children under the age of 8, or those who are working towards an NVQ in Childcare and Education (Level 3).

Over a 2 day period, students will learn with the vital skills needed to administer safe and effective treatment when dealing with potentially life-threatening paediatric emergencies. What’s more, this course now includes infant and child AED use following the Resuscitation Council (UK) 2015 Guidelines update.


Assessment and Requalification

Learners will be continually assessed throughout the duration of the course with successful candidates receiving a QA Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (RQF) certificate, which is 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 employers to meet this requirement, it is 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 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.
