Our 12 hour paediatric first aid course is aimed at early years professionals including teachers, nursery staff, childminders and nannies. This course covers the full syllabus required by OFSTED, ESTYN and Care Inspectorate Wales for early years settings. As a regulated qualification, the course also meets the high standards required for Millie’s Mark accreditation.
Practical paediatric first aid training
We believe that first aid is a practical subject, best taught practically. That’s why our training courses include plenty of hands-on training in first aid techniques and procedures. We only use presentations to reinforce the theory behind each area of first aid, rather than as the main way of delivering our training.
The 12 hour paediatric first aid course includes the following topics:
First aid for babies and children who are unconscious
Treatment for babies and children who have stopped breathing
First aid for babies and children having seizures
Bleeding and shock
Burns and scalds
Head, neck and back injuries
Medical conditions including asthma, anaphylaxis, meningitis, diabetes
Quality, up to date training
We deliver regulated qualifications through the awarding organisation ITC First. The exams regulators for England and Wales (OFQUAL and Qualifications Wales) oversee this qualification and we undertake both internal and external quality assurance on our courses. That means you can be assured that your trainer is qualified, experienced and teaching current practice.
