Be Prepared

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 Ofstedā€™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.

Myself and a group of local chilminders completed this course. We found the practical sessions so valuable. First Responders made the training enjoyable and we really feel we benefitted from this course, as we are looking after children accidents can occur and we are glad of the chance to learn how to deal with situations.
