Emergency Paediatric First Aid Training

Would you know what to do if you saw a child in need of first aid?

Having a good understanding of emergency paediatric first aid is incredibly important for the safety of children and it could mean the difference between life and death.

This QA Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid Qualification is perfect for:

  • Parents or family members who want to learn key paediatric first aid skills
  • Those who work with children and are not required to comply with Ofsted’s Childcare Register or EYFS requirements
  • Those who want to provide additional support in their organisation to the paediatric first aiders that are trained to meet EYFS or Ofsted Childcare Register requirements 

Emergency Paediatric First Aid

Successful participants will learn the roles and responsibilities of the emergency paediatric first aider, and will be equipped with the skills needed to deal with a range of paediatric first aid situations, such as performing CPR and dealing with wounds and bleeding.

In line with Ofsted Early Years and Childcare Register requirements, at least one person who has a current full paediatric first aid certificate must be on the premises and available at all times when children are present, and must accompany children on outings. Childminders, and any assistant who might be in sole charge of the children for any period of time, must hold a current full paediatric first aid certificate.

Duration for the QA Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid course:

Full Day (6 hours) We are flexible with starting times to meet the needs of your business.

QA Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid Course aims:

At the end of the one day paediatric first aid course the learner will have an understanding of First Aid procedures when working with children and babies. Although the majority of First Aid procedures are similar to those used in adult First Aid there are substantial differences in the protocols for resuscitation, choking, casualty handling and incident management.

QA Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid – Course Content:

This Course content covers the essential life saving skills for babies, infants and young children in play settings and the home environment. Each course can be adapted to mirror the working environment and surroundings of your particular child care setting.

  • Responsibilities of the First Aider
  • A systematic approach to incident management
  • Primary and Secondary Assessment
  • Principles of Resuscitation – CPR
  • Foreign Objects
  • Poisoning
  • Collapse – causes and treatment

  • Fractures
  • Broken Bones
  • Appropriate contents for a first aid kit

Emergency Paediatric First Aid – Assessment and Certification:

No independent assessment is necessary for the paediatric first aid training as the the tutor will carry out an ongoing assessment during the course itself. All delegates will receive a Certificate of Attendance (subject to passing the assessment) which is valid for 3 years.

In addition to the care for the children, staff also need to have general first aid cover. As low risk places of employment for most nurseries and schools, an Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) qualification will be sufficient with enough staff trained to cover absences caused by holidays, training, sickness and other factors.

For delegates who are required to register with Ofsted in England, or CSSIW in Wales then you will need to complete the 2 Day Paediatric First Aid course
