ITC Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (RQF) - 12+ hours

 

Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid

This course is for those who might have to identify and manage emergency situations or manage minor everyday occurrences when looking after pre-puberty children. This qualification meets Ofsted requirements for those working in early years settings and is one of those linked to in the Statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) document.  The statutory document requires at least one person who has a current paediatric first aid certificate 'to be on the premises and available at all times when children are present, and must accompany children on outings'.

 

It also represents the best practice first aid qualification to hold for staff who look after all ages of Primary School children.

 

 

Qualification Structure

This qualification is built from 2 mandatory units of assessment:

 

Unit 1 Emergency Paediatric First Aid

Unit 2 Managing Paediatric Illness, Injuries and Emergencies

Passing both units lead to the ITC Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid  

Course Duration

Normally 2-days (minimum of 12 hours contact training time)
