The course is taught by qualified medical and emergency services personnel and is designed for Professionals looking after children; including teachers, childminders, Au Pairs and playgroup leaders.
It is also an excellent course for parents who would like a more in depth training on common accidents and illnesses focussing on babies and children. Scenarios are used to consolidate learning and practice real life possibilities.
This Paediatric First Aid course meets Ofsted requirements for Registered Childminders and the requirements for Nannies under the DfES Approved Carers Scheme. It can also be used as evidence for employees working towards an NVQ in Childcare and Education.
