A fun and interactive Paediatric First Aid course covering the requirements of OfSTED and the EYFS Framework.
The dates are Thursday 25 January & Friday 26 January 2018 - same time, same venue (both sessions must be attended).

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 will involve some lying down.
There is a one hour break for lunch on each day but lunch will not be provided - only refreshments.
This course is renewed by re-taking a Paediatric First Aid course every three years.

Logged-in users - please refer to the ID requirements attached - please bring one document with you in order to take the theory assessment.
Please also read the attached policies before attending the course.
