Course Description

Course description

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.

In the UK, accidental injuries are the commonest cause of death in children over one year of age. Accidental injuries can also result in permanent disability and disfigurement. Most accidents are preventable and knowing what to do if an accident occurs can save a life.

By developing the knowledge, skills and understanding required to deal with a range of paediatric illnesses and injuries you can help to keep the infants and/or children in your care safe and well.
