Paediatric First Aid OFSTED compliance course

This course is designed for those working as a nanny, in a nursery or daycare setting and provides certified training to meet Ofsted’s requirements. The course can be taught over two days, three evenings or one extended day. We take a maximum of 16 candidates per course (extra trainers can be booked at a reduced rate).The course is taught in a very hands-on manner. It equips you with the skills to be able to recognise and respond to a first aid emergency in a safe and efficient manner.

Your staff will be trained not only how to treat an injury but also how to prevent common accidents occurring and the knowledge of what type of injuries are common with each age group. We enable your staff to respond to an emergency independently, but also run through a number of scenarios so they have hands-on practice working as a team. This Paediatric First Aid course meets the requirements of the Early Years foundation stage statutory framework.

Becoming a brilliant trainer takes experience, for this reason we only employ trainers with at least 3 years of training experience.

Why Train With Us:

All our trainers are qualified medics and have hands-on experience of dealing with first aid emergencies and specialist knowledge of basic life support and paediatric first aid. They bring the experience of their workplace, either working in A&E departments, Paediatrics or for the London Ambulance Service to every class they teach.

It is one thing knowing what happens in a medical emergency, it is another skill being able to relate this to those with little or no knowledge of first aid in a clear and simple manner. Becoming a brilliant trainer, takes experience, for this reason we only employ trainers with at least 3 years of training experience.

Active Learning:

Every aspect of our courses employ active participation learning methods. We understand that candidates on the course expect to take home a huge amount of essential first aid information. We found the most effective method of teaching is to actively engage the class with the subjects. Our approach is based on the Montessori method of teaching, whereby learning is most effective in an enjoyable, relaxed and interactive environment

All our classes are kept small and we feel our candidates need the space to practice and one-to-one attention to benefit most from the course. Small class sizes also allow the attendees to ask questions or for subjects to be covered in greater detail if needed. Classes can be booked at a time and location to suit you. (evenings and weekends at no extra cost).
