Paediatric First Aid course

12 hours (2 days)

This paediatric first aid course focuses on the situations and conditions most likely to be of relevance to those working with young children – and in particular teachers, nursery staff, child-minders and play group leaders. It also meets the requirements of the Early Years foundation stage statutory framework. This course has plenty of hand-on practice and is aimed at giving you the confidence to recognise and manage a wide range of emergencies until the ambulance or other medical help arrives as well as dealing with the more day to day situations that you may be faced with.
