    Paediatric First Aid Level 3 Course Overview:

    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 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid is recognised as a qualification that fulfils this need.
