This course is suitable for people aged 16+ who care for children in any professional setting (e.g. nannies, child-minders, nursery workers and au pairs), and is specifically aimed at newly qualified level two or three early years childcare staff.

The emergency paediatric first aid course is recognised by Ofsted for Early Years (EYFS) and meets Childcare Registration requirements.

If you don’t need first aid training for work reasons but would like to learn first aid for babies and children, our popular first aid for baby and child course is perfect for new and expectant parents, grandparents and carers.

This course covers how to help a baby or child who:
  • is unresponsive and breathing
  • is unresponsive and not breathing, including:
    • the chain of survival
    • the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) on a child
      • is choking
      • is bleeding
      • is suffering from shock
      • is burnt or has a scald
      • has a medical emergency, including seizures.

The course also includes details on accident reporting and administering medication for those working in a childcare setting.

All first aid courses include 3 year certification, refreshments and a comprehensive book.

Please ensure you read the terms & conditions for the course before booking your place.
