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
