Who is the Level 3 Paediatric First Aid training course suitable for? Delivered in our Northampton Training Suite or at Your Premises.

UPDATED EYFS FRAMEWORK: From January 2024 the latest EYFS changes mean that all staff that hold a Level 2 and/ or Level 3 Childcare qualification since 30 June 2016 in a nursery group and school-based setting must hold a valid Paediatric First Aid qualification to be included in the required staff: child ratios for Ofsted.

Our courses are delivered via a mix of E-Learning and Classroom learning totalling 12 hours which means you can complete the course with flexibility. Once you book your classroom course date, you will have 6 weeks to complete the E-Learning that is sent to you by e-mail (directly after booking the course).

If you work in a Childcare setting or simply want to learn about paediatric first aid techniques, then this is the right course for you. To note, this course meets EYFS and Ofsted guidelines for Paediatric First Aid training.
