Would you know what to do if a child in your care needed first aid?
Having the correct paediatric first aid provision is not only a statutory requirement for the majority of childcare providers, it is extremely important for the safety of children.
The QA Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (RQF) qualification is ideal for those who work or intend to work in a childcare setting as it is been specifically designed to fulfil Ofsted’s first aid requirements for early years teachers, nursery workers and childminders.
Successful candidates will learn the roles and responsibilities of the paediatric first aider, and will be equipped with the necessary skills to administer safe and effective treatment when dealing with a range of paediatric first aid situations.
The Activity First Aid course will explain the responsibilities of a first aider and how to assess an incident in an outdoors environment. Training also includes heart attacks, strokes and epilepsy and seizures. For a full list of what's covered, please click here.
