Paediatric First Aid

This course meets the full requirements of OFSTED / EYFS 2021 for those caring for or working with babies through to young adults.

Have fun learning how to deal with the typical accidents that children have and cover adult skills as well.

Each skill is tailored to children’s needs and the differences between the treatment of adults and children is thoroughly explained.

At the end of the course you will feel confident to cope with the following scenarios and more: drowning, falling off a bike, cot death and nose bleeds.

The course covers infant and child skills as a matter of course, but we also cover adults skills. This means you have the skill to help your colleagues and friends and also gives you an EFAW certificate as well.

I've learned so much about depression, stress, self harm, suicide, etc and the mental health action plan and how to tailor it to individuals.
