Paediatric First Aid
Course Description

QA Accredited

2 days

Group

The course provides theoretical and practical training in First Aid techniques that are specific to infants aged 0 to 1, and children aged from 1 year old to the onset of puberty.

The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, published by The Department for Children, Schools and Families, applies to Early Years childcare within England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Statutory Framework states that ‘at least one person who has a current paediatric first aid certificate must be on the premises at all times when children are present. There must be at least one person on outings who has a current paediatric first aid certificate.’ The Level 2 Award in Paediatric First Aid is recognised as a qualification that fulfils this need.

Level 2 Award in Paediatric First Aid

The Level 2 Award in Paediatric First Aid consists of two units and is provided over two days with a minimum contact time of six hours per unit.

For the purposes of Registered Childcare provision and Early Years childcare within England, Wales and Northern Ireland, the Candidate must successfully complete the full two day Level 2 Award in Paediatric First Aid.

Delegates will become familiar with the role of the paediatric first aider and be able to assess and react appropriately to an emergency situation including being able to provide first aid for a child and an infant who:

  • is unresponsive
  • has an airway obstruction
  • is suffering from shock
  • is wounded and bleeding
  • has a fracture or dislocation
  • has a head, neck or back injury
  • has a condition effecting the eyes, ears or nose
  • has a chronic medical condition or sudden illness
  • is experiencing the effects of extreme heat and/or cold
  • has been poisoned
  • has been bitten or stung
  • has sustained an electric shock

Credit Certificate in Paediatric First Aid

A one day course covers Unit 1 of the qualification. Candidates successfully completing only the 1 day course will gain a Credit Certificate only, not the full Level 2 Award in Paediatric First Aid.

Attendees will be able to:

Understand first aid techniques specific to infants and children
Act as a designated Paediatric First Aider
