Paediatric First Aid (Level 3 RQF)

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Statutory Framework requires all early years providers to have at least one staff member available at all times who has completed a full paediatric first aid qualification. They must also take into account the layout of the premises, the number of children on site and their needs, and how quickly staff are able to respond to incidents, when assessing first aid provision.

Our comprehensive 2 day Paediatric First Aid course equips learners with the vital skills necessary to diagnose, manage and treat a wide range of paediatric injuries and illnesses.
