A fun and interactive Paediatric First Aid course covering the requirements of OfSTED and the EYFS Framework.

The 2-session course (12 hours in total) is approved by the First Aid Industry Body (FAIB). This course is assessed more around practical ability and, although there is a theory assessment, this is written in such a way that it is easier for those with English as a second language to complete.
This course meets the needs for the EYFS Framework in the same way as the Level 3 Qualification.
The 2-session course can be physically strenuous at times and comfortable clothing should be worn. Please - no skirts or dresses as the course is practical and will involve some lying down.
There is a one hour break for lunch on each day but lunch will not be provided - only refreshments.

For Governors who have missed one of the following modules:
Governors must have completed at least one module in Level 1 to attend this session.
Level 1 – Foundation of Good Governance
Typically, it is expected that new governors will take 12 months to complete the 6 modules and 2 self-assessment booklets needed to be an accredited governor at Level 2. It is anticipated that some established governors may wish to undertake this programme in which case it will also serve as refresher training or ‘continuous governor development’ (CGD).
Level 1 examines the role and expectations of the modern day governor through the 20 key competencies set out in GAP based on the DfE’s 3 core functions of governing bodies. There are three 2 hour linked training modules and a robust self-assessment booklet to be completed.
• Module 1 Good governance
• Module 2 Understanding School Data
• Module 3 Safeguarding and Inclusion
A certificate of induction will be awarded and enable governors to progress to level 2 ‘Accreditation’.
GAP Level 2 – Accredited governance
Building on level 1, this involves three further training modules, each lasting 2 hours. Governors will evidence how they contribute to effective governance and the impact of their work through their own school experiences.
• Module 4 Driving school improvement
• Module 5 Managing relationships
• Module 6 Preparing for Ofsted
