A great course! Much better than my previous one!

Best 1st Aid training so far!


I enjoyed the training and has helped my knowledge to get better
Really enjoyed all the different teaching methods!


Much better than previous Paediatric course three years a go. Much more in depth

From the beginning we were able to repeat activities until we were confident and no feeling of being rushed.

Being able to understand and feel able to ask questions and having them answered.

Made interesting and understandable

Very good trainer, not boring at all, kept the interest at all times

Great trainer, made it an enjoyable experience

Really good - very interesting + fun!

Balance of practical & theory

This course is the best first aid training I have ever done. Very relevant to my work and extremely helpful

Very good teacher, straight to the point, lots of interaction with dummies and getting us to act out and do it ourselves. Liked revision things.

Convenient location - nice small group - lots of chance to practice - practical.

Having been away from training and work for 14 months ... I was worried I would struggle with concentration. The course was well structured and delivered. I had no problems at all

From 1st September 2014 you will no longer need to use a local authority approved trainer.

It is now the responsibility of the early years provider to select a training company. It is preferred that this company delivers a nationally approved and accredited first aid qualification.

We have delivered a regulated Paediatric first aid course for many years and as of 1st September will be offering the new Level 3 award in Paediatric First Aid from Qualsafe who are the UK largest first aid awarding body. This course covers the St John Ambulance and Red Cross paediatric first aid content.

This is a 12-hour course delivered over two days or 4 evenings. The course is designed for workers caring for children in the absence of parents. Suitable for child minders who need to comply with Ofsted Paediatric First Aid Requirements. First aid for child minders.

Attend a public course or we can come to you and deliver to your group.

This new level 3 award is worth 3 credits. Whilst the guided learning hours are quoted as 16 hours the contact time will remain the same at 12 hours.

The certificate must be renewed every three years.
