The Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid meets the criteria set by the Department for Education’s Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework, which requires all early years providers in England to have at least one person who has a current and full paediatric first aid certificate on the premises and available at all times when children are present. Providers should also take into account the number of children, staff and layout of the premises and increase their paediatric first aid provision accordingly to ensure that a paediatric first aider is available to respond to emergencies quickly. This course is therefore perfect for those working in an early years setting who wish to be included in the staff to child ratios as well as registered childminders and assistants who are required to hold a current and full paediatric first aid certificate in order to comply with the EYFS requirements. It would also be of interest to anyone who has a non-professional involvement with infants and children, such as parents and grandparents who want to learn key paediatric first aid skills. Over a two-day period, you will develop the skills and knowledge needed to deal with a range of paediatric first aid situations, including: assessing an emergency situation, dealing with an unresponsive infant or child, CPR, choking, meningitis, head and spinal injuries, anaphylaxis, asthma and more (learning outcomes listed below are not exhaustive).
