Level 3 Paediatric First Aid

Level 3 Paediatric First Aid

Would you know what to do if a child in your care needed first aid? Having the correct paediatric first aid provision is not only a statutory requirement for the majority of childcare providers, it is extremely important for the safety of children.
The QA Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (QCF) qualification is ideal for those who work or intend to work in a childcare setting as it has been specifically designed to fulfil Ofsted’s first aid requirements for early years teachers, nursery workers and childminders (as defined within the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage 2014 and within the Child Care Register guide)
