As an employer and childcare provider you are responsible for making sure that your children receive immediate attention if they are taken ill or are injured at Nursery / School. Accidents and illness can happen at any time and sitting a paediatric first aid training course can save lives and prevent minor injuries from becoming major ones. Thats why the Government has introduced a new law to all Childcare Providers that will be coming into place from October!
New nursery and pre-school staff will be required to undertake paediatric 1st aid training for the first time, thanks to new government proposals.
The new proposals will mean newly qualified staff with a childcare level 2 and 3 qualification must have an emergency or full paediatric first aid certification – a life-saving change that will add approximately 15,000 additional trained early years professionals to our nurseries and pre-schools each and every year.
All Training courses are…
- Maximum of 12 Delegates & 3 Year Certificates.
- Accredited Instructors Across The UK
