About Our First Aid Courses

12 Hour Certificate In Paediatric First Aid | First Aid abc

Ofsted and EYFS requirements

Our First Aid Courses for Nurseries, Pre-schools, Childminders and teachers meet the Ofsted requirements for Paediatric First Aid training, for anyone working in the childcare sector.

(EYFS 2014) 3.25. “At least one person who has a current 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 paediatric first aid certificate. Paediatric first aid training must be relevant for workers caring for young children and where relevant, babies. Providers should take into account the number of children, staff and layout of premises to ensure that a paediatric first aider is able to respond to emergencies quickly.”

First Aid abc run intensive 12 or 6 hour First Aid Courses covering the full Ofsted recommended syllabus.

We know how difficult it is to release staff at your childcare setting for two whole days of training, therefore we offer:

12hr Blended Learning Course with only one day of face-to-face learning with the rest in the form of an e-learning module.

This option still meets the requirements of the 12 Hour Paediatric First Aid Course recommended by Ofsted and the EYFS welfare requirements.

12hr Two Day Course, two days of face-to-face training.

By making the delivery of our course content as flexible as possible we hope to ease the difficulty of accessing staff training.

Our courses are taught by highly qualified and experienced medical and childcare sector professionals who regularly use their skills in real life situations and who are committed, high quality trainers. Find out more on out About Us page.

It is vitally important to be confident and competent when caring for a child in a medical emergency and we will ensure that, on completion of the course, you are equipped with the necessary skills to confidently help, should something happen.

--- Best course ever, well organised, sharing experience and knowledge with possibilities to practice under guidance (partly on different dummies) for the emergency. It gives yourself and your partner much more knowledge and confidence for worst case scenarios. This is so important, especially with young children! Well done! Highly recommended!!!
