QA Level 3 Paediatric First Aid

What’s It About?

This two-day paediatric first aid course has been specifically designed to meet the criteria set by the Department for Education’s Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Statutory Framework. 

During the course, you will develop the skills and knowledge needed to deal with a range of paediatric first aid situations.  This includes: assessing an emergency, dealing with an unresponsive infant or child, CPR, choking, meningitis, head and spinal injuries, anaphylaxis, asthma and more.

What Will You Gain?

By attending the course, you will meet the standard required by OFSTED and EYFS and be qualified to respond to a situation whereby an infant or child is ill or injured.

On returning to the workplace, you will have the confidence to react quickly to any incident, especially those involving children.

You will know the different types of injuries and illnesses that may occur when looking after children and know what to do and how to treat them.

Who Should Attend?

This course is right for you if you are a childminder, nanny or au pair.  It is also perfect if you work in an environment with children such as schools, nurseries or playgroups. If you are likely to face the range of paediatric first aid emergencies, this course would be perfect.

It is also ideal for anyone who has a non-professional involvement with infants and children.  This would include parents, grandparents and want to learn key paediatric first aid skills.

Why’s It Important?

If you work with children, even if on an occasional basis, first aid training is essential. You need to know exactly what to do in an emergency, whether you’re alone or with other staff members.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Statutory Framework requires all early-year providers in England to have at least one person with a current paediatric first-aid certificate. Employers should also take into account the number of children, staff and layout of the premises.  They must ensure that they have adequate cover at all times to be able to react to emergencies quickly.

Having designated qualified first aiders in the workplace is also a legal requirement. The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 state that employers should provide adequate and appropriate equipment and enough trained first aiders to help injured or ill staff.

Although accidents can be prevented, they can still occur, so it’s important to be prepared. Having adequately trained first aid personnel onsite will ensure that if an emergency does arise, it will be dealt with promptly and effectively.

A paediatric first aid at work qualification is only valid for three years.  Before it expires, you are legally obligated to ensure that your employees renew this qualification.  If you don’t, you are putting everyone involved in your business at risk; your employees, children, and visitors.
