If you have a professional interest, i.e. you are a child-minder or school teacher, etc, then this course partly fulfils the requirements of Ofsted and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Ofsted and the Early Years Foundation Stage require you to have 12 hours of paediatric first aid training, so the 2-Day Level 3 Emergency Paediatric First Aid would be required to fulfil their requirements. This 6 hour qualification also makes up the first half of the 12-hour Level 3 Emergency Paediatric First Aid course.
The Level 3 emergency paediatric first aid course is recommended for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and meets Childcare Registration requirements.
A range of subjects are covered including:
- Responsibilities and reporting
- Dealing with an unresponsive casualty
- Minor injuries
- Assessment of the situation
- Wounds and bleeding
- Anaphylaxia and Shock
Summative practical assessment is ongoing by the instructor, along with a written assessment. A three year Level 3 Emergency Paediatric First Aid (Level 6 in Scotland) will be issued to the learner, subject to successful assessment. No external assessors are required.
A maximum of 12 students are allowed and must be a minimum of 16 years of age and a certificate can be offered to all, subject to assessment.
