This course combines the initial First Aid at Work Course and the Paediatric First Aid course. This is a classroom delivered course with the advantage of minimising the number of days training required to complete both courses.
This comprehensive course is ideal for schools, sports clubs, or childcare settings where both first aiders and paediatric first aiders are required to meet HSE, EYFS and OFSTED requirements.
By integrating the First Aid at Work and the Paediatric First Aid qualifications into an intensive three-day classroom session, this specially tailored course equips individuals with the necessary skills and knowledge for both adult and paediatric first aid. It condenses the training days needed to obtain both qualifications.
This course meets the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage and the requirements in the Government document ‘First Aid in Schools, Early Years and Further Education (updated 14/2/22)’ Where, within this document it states
'While the regulations do not require employers to provide first aid for anyone other than their own employees, it is strongly recommended that all schools and colleges consider the needs of non-employees such as pupils, students and visitors when making provision for first aid.'
