*NEW* Paediatric First Aid Annual Update for Childcare Practioners

Course Overview

ITC Paediatic First Aid Annual Update for Childcare Practioners (3.5 Hours)

This course has been designed for those who work professionally with children under the age of puberty. Changes to the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage in March 2017, now state that: " Providers should consider whether Paediatric First Aiders need to undertake annual refresher training during any three year certification period, to help maintain basic skills and to keep up to date with any changes to Peadiatic First Aid procedures.

This course is primarily for those who work under the Ofsted/EYFS guidedance, and hold either the Emergency Paediatric or Full Paediatric First Aid qualification that is Ofsted/EYFS Compliant and is valid.

Please note this qualification does not replace the need to complete another Emergency Paediatric or Full Paediatirc First Aid qualification every 3 years. This course is just designed to compliment and update previous training.

If you aquire the Full Paediatric First Aid qualification look for the ITC Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (RQF) qualification on our website.

Testimonial

 

We have been using 2nd chance First Aid for all our first aid / Epi-pen courses for the last 6 years. 
 
After completing 1st aid training every 3 years for the last 20 years I personally found some training centre's in the past have become monotonous and strained in there approach to teaching 1st aid. With all trainee's minds focusing not on the holistic approach to 1st aid - but the pass or fail re-enactment test at the end of the course.
 
Thankfully with 2nd chance 1st aid the course is held at a venue of your choice - this helps in keeping a calm environment which inevitably helps staff  retain information. Neil ensures the course is suitably tailored to the group and ensures all his information and teaching techniques are currently endorsed practices. 
 
1st aid training is a serious training qualification, however my staff (especially new to child care) have remembered lots of detailed information due to the fun yet importantly informative way Neil teaches.
 
Roll on March 2012 when we will be seeing Neil again.
