This is a 1-day entry level course for anyone looking after children but do not need the full 2-day OFSTED Paediatric course.
Typically this would be for Nannies and Au Pairs although babysitters, parents and grandparents would also find this course suitable

This course is the entry level Paediatric First Aid course suitable for parents, nannies and au pairs. However, if you are registering with Ofsted you will need our full two day or one day online followed by one day in the classroom course instead.

All our first aid courses fully meet the UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2015 as per the HSE requirements. The content of this and all our courses has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines and come with a Certified CPD Statement as well as the Emergency Paediatric Certificate and, for online courses, an Evidence Based Learning statement.
