First Aid Part-time


Paediatric First Aid HABC Level 3 Award

A brand new course which provides you with a comprehensive knowledge of the principles of first aid for babies and young children. The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage is a document published by the Dept for Education and applies to Early Years childcare. The Framework states that at least one person who has a current Paediatric First Aid Certificate must be on the premises at all times when children are present. There must also be at least one person on outings who has a current Paediatric First Aid Certificate. This Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid is recognised as a qualification to fulfil the obligations of this Statutory Framework.
