CIEH Level 2 Award in  Paediatric First Aid

Description

Designed to ensure that all employees are aware of their own safety and the safety of customers, contractors and the public. This qualification can be tailored to business and individual needs to make the learning experience relevant and fit for purpose.

The national standards for first aid in childcare settings state 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’. Additionally, at least one person with a current paediatric first-aid certificate must accompany every outing.

The Practice Guidance in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets out the first-aid training requirements for Ofsted-regulated child-care settings. This guidance includes details of the course content and the duration of the training. The CIEH Level 2 Award in Paediatric First Aid has been developed to meet these requirements and is based on the QCF Units F/600/2036 and J/600/2037.

Trainers and centres who register to deliver the CIEH Level 2 Award in Paediatric First Aid will automatically be registered to deliver the CIEH Level2 Award in Principles of Paediatric Emergency First Aid.
