12 Hour Paediatric Child Care



This accredited qualification provides theoretical and practical training in First Aid techniques that are specific to infants aged 0 to 1, and children aged from 1 year old to the onset of puberty.

You will become familiar with the role of the paediatric first aider and be able to assess and react appropriately to an emergency situation, such as a child or an infant who is unresponsive, has an airway obstruction or is suffering from shock.

Topics also included are wounds, fractures, dislocations, injuries to the head, neck, back, eyes, ears or nose, poisoning, bites or stings and electric shock.

This qualification consists of two units and is provided over a period of 2 days with a minimum contact time of 6 hours per unit.

The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage is a document published by The Department for Children, Schools and Families and applies to Early Years childcare within England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The Statutory Framework states that ‘at least one person who has a current paediatric first aid certificate must be on the premises at all times when children are present. There must be at least one person on outings who has a current paediatric first aid certificate.’ 

You will be issued with a Paediatric First Aid Level 3 award Certificate, along with a wallet-sized plastic card detailing your achievement on successful completion. The childcare sector dictate, that to be valid when working in the childcare sector, learners must retake the Paediatric First Aid qualification before the expiry of 3 years from the date that the original qualification was achieved.   Please contact us for further information
