This first aid course is designed to support individuals with the responsibility for the welfare of infants and children to become paediatric first aid trained. The course will be of interest to teachers, childminders, early years practitioners, parents and anyone who has a responsibility for the welfare of children and infants.
The few seconds after an accident are critical and can make a huge difference to a child’s life. This course will provide you with the knowledge and skills on how to administer basic first aid and the procedures to follow that could help to save the life of an infant or child in your care.
It focuses on emergency scenarios that those working in Early Years may have to face and gives them the knowledge and confidence to deal with situations. Topics within the course are regarded as good practice by the Early Years Foundation Stage, being important for the safe, prompt and effective treatment of injuries and ill health of infants and children. This qualification meets the requirements for Paediatric First Aid outlined in the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Our paediatric first aid workshop will provide knowledge and practical competence required to deal with a range of paediatric first aid situations. There will be 2 units over the 2 days. Emergency paediatric first aid and Managing paediatric illness, injuries and emergencies.
Practical skills will be assessed by continuous observation by the trainer and there will be a written assessment paper to check understanding.
When you have small children of your own you never know when emergencies will arise. It is therefore reassuring and comforting to know that you have the knowledge and skills to know how to handle critical situations that could help to save the life of an infant or child.
