POSTPONED - LEAMIS - Microsoft Word - Level 1
Emergency Paediatric First Aid Level 3 (6 hour)
The Emergency Paediatric First Aid course is a stand-alone qualification that matches the content of Unit 1 of the two-day full Paediatric First Aid course.
The emergency first aid training course would be the equivalent of 1 day of training and would need to be refreshed every 3 years in order for the staff member to keep counting in the ratios.
Who needs this qualification?
This Emergency Paediatric First Aid is primarily aimed at those working in child-care settings, but it will be useful for anyone with responsibility for caring with infants and children.
Candidates who have completed this qualification are also eligable to complete day 2 of the full paediatirc first aid course. There is a time scale of 6 weeks for this to be completed.
Health and Safety - Paediatric First Aid Level 3 (12 hour)
The national standards for first aid in childcare settings state that ‘at least one person who has a current paediatric first-aid certificate must be on the premises at all times when children are present’. Additionally, at least one person with a current paediatric first-aid certificate must accompany every outing.
The Practice Guidance in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets out the first-aid training requirements for Ofsted-regulated child-care settings. This guidance includes details of the course content and the duration of the training. This Paediatric First Aid course has been developed to meet these requirements.
The new (2016) requirement means that a nursery recruiting a level 2 or level 3 member of staff who had newly completed their early years/childcare qualification must have an emergency paediatric first aid or a full paediatric first aid certificate, if they are to count towards the staff/qualification ratios under the early years foundation stage. The emergency first aid training course would be the equivalent of 1 day of training and would need to be refreshed every 3 years in order for the staff member to keep counting in the ratios.
Who needs this qualification?
The Paediatric First Aid 12 hour Level 2 Course is primarily aimed at those working in child-care settings, but it will be useful for anyone with responsibility for caring for infants and children. Primary Schools with a reception class would require this qualification.
The Paediatric First Aid course is a two-unit award, comprising:
Unit 1: Paediatric Emergency First Aid
Unit 2: Managing Paediatric Illness and Injury
(Virtual) P-KAI01 (Academy) Induction Step 1- Induction Training for New Governors - The National and Regional Context for Governance and Legal Responsibilities

You will also have the opportunity to reflect on the skills that you bring to the role of governor in your school.
