Paediatric First Aid

This course is designed for people that are left in charge of caring for children in the absence of their parents / guardians, and therefore is ideal for nursery staff, childminders, schools and parents.

This regulated first aid qualification is specific to infants aged under 1, and children aged from 1 year old to the onset of puberty. 

It fulfills the requirements of the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) as issued by the department for Education and Skills Foundation Stage relating to Early Years childcare.

This Level 3 qualification is an extended version of the Emergency Paediatric First Aid.

Please note that the Paediatric first aid course is 12 hours face to face teaching time.

We at Cornerstone Training understand how difficult it can be to release your staff for training and still keep the required ratio of staff:children, and so we are flexible in our training delevery to suit your business needs - this includes evenings and weekends.
