Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid

This two day First Aid  training course has been developed for people who work with children and babies covering a wide range of paediatric emergencies to boost confidence and competence when dealing with an unwell child. At the end of this course you will gain a Nationally Accredited Level 3 award which satisfies the guidelines and criteria set out by Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Ofsted.

At the end of Day 1 you will have achieved a Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid which may be all you require and therefore you will not need to complete Day 2. However, this will not be enough to satisfy requirements set by Ofsted and EYFS.
