RQF Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Statutory Framework requires all early years providers to have at least one person who has a current and full paediatric first aid certificate on the premises and available at all times when children are present.
The QA Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (RQF) has been specifically designed to meet the EYFS criteria, ideal for:
- Those who have gained a level 2 and/or level 3 childcare qualification and have entered into an early years setting
- Registered childminders and assistants
- Anyone who has a non-professional involvement with infants and children, such as parents, grandparents and want to learn key paediatric first aid skills.
Successful candidates will understand the roles and responsibilities of the paediatric first aider, and will be equipped with the necessary skills to administer safe and effective treatment when dealing with a range of paediatric first aid situations.
