Learn how to deal with First Aid emergencies specific to children. This course satisfies the guidelines and criteria as laid down by the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and OFSTED.
In order to obtain this qualification, you must attend both days and complete the two units of accreditation.
You'll cover topics including:
- Responsibilities and reporting
- Assessment of the situation
- Head injuries
- Dealing with an unresponsive casualty
- Infantile convulsions
- Foreign bodies
- Control of bleeding and shock
- Eye injuries

You'll be assessed through questions your tutor will ask you during the course. At the end of the course, you'll sit a multiple choice assessment which lasts 30 minutes. Throughout the course, you'll need to demonstrate practical application of the skills and techniques you've learned in each unit. If you pass the course, you'll receive a certificate and wallet-sized card with your qualification which will last three years.
A basic level of literacy and numeracy is advised. You must be able to kneel on the ground in order to perform the CPR technique required on the course.
Please bring pens and paper. Wear comfortable clothing during the course.
There may be materials you need to help with your studies. You'll either make a one-off payment for these when you enrol, or you'll buy them during the course. Your tutor will talk to you about this at interview or in your first class (if you don't need an interview).
Depending on your course and circumstances, you may be able to get funding to help with materials fees. Please check with us when you come in for interview or enrolment.
