Under the Ofsted guidelines, schools and nurseries are required to have an adequate number of First Aid trained staff. Our Emergency Paediatric First Aid training is ideal for anyone who cares for infants and children, such as parents, guardians, grandparents, or those who care for them in a professional setting and want to learn key paediatric first aid skills.
This Emergency Paediatric First Aid training course teaches learners what emergency scenarios they may be faced with when looking after babies and young children, including responsiveness, choking, seizures and bleeding. Any newly qualified entrants to the early years workforce who have completed a level 2 and/or level 3 qualification can be included in the required staff:child ratio if they gain an Emergency Paediatric First Aid certificate within 3 months of starting work.
This training is available as a blended Emergency Paediatric First Aid course, meaning you will do part of this course online and the other face-to-face to save up time and money while benefitting from the same quality training. Upon completion, learners will receive an Emergency Paediatric First Aid certificate.
Please note that the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) statutory framework states that only those holding a full certificate can be counted towards the required number of supervising adults in a childcare setting. Due to this course only being day one of the full certificate, this course in particular, will not fulfil this requirement but opens the pathway to getting fully certified in Paediatric First Aid. This Emergency Paediatric First Aid course is better suited for those that are working as part of a team with other staff who hold a full certificate. As a comprehensive training solution, Flexebee provides the full Paediatric First Aid certification as well. Please see our Paediatric First Aid course here.
The aim of this Emergency Paediatric First Aid training course is to greater increase your knowledge of how to respond in emergency situations.
