Course description

Would you know what to do if you saw a child in need of 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 (QCF) qualification is ideal for those who work or intend to work in a childcare setting as it has been specifically designed to fulfil Ousted’s first aid requirements for early years teachers, nursery workers and childminders (as defined within the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage 2014 and within the Child Care Register guide). 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.
