This Level 3 Regulated Course covers Paediatric First Aid, allowing you to provide the best care for children in Emergencies.
This qualification is designed for learners who wish to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of first aid to enable them to provide care and manage life-threatening conditions, illnesses and injuries in early years settings. It offers the opportunity for those involved in early years settings to provide quality and effective first aid care. This is achieved through an understanding of the general duties, responsibilities and treatment principles of first aid.
Learners gaining this qualification will know that first aid is the responsibility of everyone involved in the working environment. Topics within this course are regarded by the Early Years Foundation Stage as being important to maintaining good practice in the safe, prompt and effective treatment of injuries and ill health of infants and children who are under the care of trained personnel.
This qualification meets the requirements for Paediatric First Aid outlined in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Each learner who completes this course will be awarded UCAS points that will contribute to their progression into higher education. UCAS tariff points translate qualifications and grades into a numerical value which is then used by higher education course providers to assess whether learners have met their entry requirements. While universities will have their own entry requirements, this new points system gives learners the opportunity to generate more UCAS points to support their progression into university.
All our first aid courses fully meet the UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2021 as per the HSE requirements and it is the latest version laid down by the Awarding Organisations.
