The course:

QNUK Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (RFQ)

  • 1-day training in your setting (6 hrs or 2x 3 hrs) preceded by completing a self-guided E-Learning module accessible via the internet with special log-in and full support supplied by Riverside Cares
  • Teaching dates available throughout the year
  • This course complies with both the Ofsted voluntary and compulsory registration requirements
  • Fully certificated for 3 years
  • Suitable for early years settings, child-minders, creches, schools and anyone who wishes to equip themselves with this vital knowledge
  • Idea course for staff undertaking the responsibilities associated with being a First Aider in an early-years setting.
  • An excellent choice for Early Years practitioners who require a Paediatric First Aid qualification which meets the requirements of the EYFS.

Attendees will be required to demonstrate first aid procedures as they would in a real work environment, for example providing CPR to a casualty on the floor

Department of Education legislation requires all newly qualified level two and three childcarers in Early Years settings to have either an emergency paediatric first aid or full paediatric first-aid certificate. Riverside Cares offers both courses.

This qualification is available to those over 16 years.

Due to the language of the assessment, it is recommended that learners have sufficient command of the English language (if you have English as a second language we would suggest equal to functioning English L2) in order to understand the assessment and to undertake the recommended assessment methods.

Attendees will be required to demonstrate First Aid procedures as they would in a real work environment. This includes providing CPR to a casualty who is on the floor, therefore be physically capable of doing so.

Early Years settings are legally required to have on-site at all times at least one person with a valid full 12-hour paediatric first aid certificate the person needs to be available on-site and when the setting accompanies children on trips.

Booking this course: Contact Riverside Cares Team via this link 

Please note that candidates between the age of 14-16 years can undertake the qualification, however, they should not be relied upon by employers to be a sole first aider.

Attendees will be required to demonstrate first aid procedures as they would in a real work environment, for example providing CPR to a casualty on the floor

First Aid Skills for Children and Young People

First Aid Skills for Children and Young People

School children in state education will be required to learn basic first aid skills as part of their curriculum from September 2020. Primary school children will learn about how to ask for help from the emergency services and how to respond to a head injury. Secondary school children will learn more advanced first aid skills including CPR and about defibrillators. We will be delivering specially designed sessions for young people from January 2020.

£200.00

Supporting Children With Epilepsy. 3-hour course for up to 15* staff 

Groups up to 8 students can be taught via Zoom in our virtual classroom

This vital course teaches what epilepsy is and the necessary skills required to look after a child with this condition. You will learn how to provide any additional day to day support which might be required, as well as learning how to respond in an emergency situation.

You will be taught about the different types of epilepsy and understand the impact they each can have on individual children.

Why This Course Matters

The Children and Families Act 2014 introduced the legal obligation that schools must provide appropriate care for children with medical conditions. Riverside Cares’ epilepsy training will ensure that staff will confidently understand the condition and have the appropriate knowledge to manage seizures. The training course is designed to support a School in fulfilling its responsibility to provide equality of access to learning and to ensure all children have the opportunity to be included in all school activities.

One in every 220 children will have a diagnosis of epilepsy. That’s an average of one child with epilepsy in every primary school, and 5 in every secondary school ( Epilepsy Action).

This course is suitable for you/your staff if you:

  • Work in an Early Years Setting
  • Work as an ‘at home’ childcarer
  • Childminder
  • School
  • Nursery
