Paediatric First Aid Course Certified

To Administer First Aid to Babies and Children

Paediatric First Aid for Nannies

Paediatric First Aid Course CertificateWhen applying to the Agency, all applicants will be asked to provide proof of an original up-to-date Paediatric First Aid Certificate. If they don’t currently hold an up-to-date qualification, they will be required to take the course in order to be placed with one of our Clients. Valid for 3 years, this qualification meets the Ofsted Early Years.

Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Childcare Register requirements for paediatric first aid training.

Taught in a classroom setting, the course offers a practical, hands-on approach that delivers the training and confidence to use first aid skills in a real-life situation. For added reassurance, they will be assessed throughout the course using a range of practical demonstrations, question and answer sessions, quizzes and engaging activities designed to coach and support them.

They will also learn basic adult first aid skills, from how to note details of an accident to how to administer medication. All good stuff.

Where are the first aid courses held?

There are a number of training centres who offer the recognised certificate.  St John Ambulance hold a blended course which is part on-line and part in-person. The British Red Cross run a 2 day in-person only course. Conveniently, both have venues throughout the UK and, attendees are advised to take a packed lunch in case the venue doesn’t have a cafeteria. Tiger Lily and Safe & Sound First Aid Training are other companies that offer recognised First Aid courses.
