*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

 

Neil delivers First Aid training courses to Gloucestershire County Council's staff and foster carers. Neil's training style is friendly but professional  and is always able to develop a good rapport with the group. This ensures that delegates are relaxed to enough to participate in the exercises, ask questions, enjoy & learn from the course. He is enthusiastic when delivering training and individually encourages the delegates with the practical exercises.  Neil draws upon his vast experience & knowledge as a first aider by giving practical examples which delegates always find beneficial. He also ensures that the courses meets the delegates' needs and is therefore very flexible in approach.
We always get positive feedback from Neil's courses and I have personally attended one of  Neil's courses which I thoroughly enjoyed and learnt from. I would not hesitate to recommend Neil for first aid training. (Tracey Stephens, Workforce Advisor, Glos CC)
