Paediatric First Aid in Peterborough and Cambridgeshire 

Who is the Ideal Candidate for a twelve-hour Paediatric Course?


The Twelve-Hour Paediatric First Aid course is suitable for Childminders, Teachers, Teaching Assistance, Nursery workers, Au Pairs, Nannies, School nurses, parents, or anyone providing childcare as this course surpasses the requirements set out by Ofsted, EYFS, and SureStart. Our Paediatric Course is also certificated as Level 3 RQF.

Paediatric First Aid Course Content 

There is an extensive range of subjects that get delivered within the 12 hours of the course — which is all listed below — there is a focus on more common worried for infants, such as choking, drowning and Asthma. You will also be demonstrated how to recognise and respond to specific worries and symptoms like a nose bleed or foreign bodily objects.¬†

The course itself is an ongoing assessment with no end test. We have chosen this practice of ongoing assessments as it helps absorb more information and shows students’ merit more accurately. Throughout the paediatric training, the instructor will demonstrate each course section. The candidates will be expected to complete the task, highlighting their learning information

Throughout the first aid training course, the candidates will be expected to complete a theory question paper to ensure learning has taken place. With prior notice, the theory test will be given verbally should a candidate have learning or language difficulties.

Once your paediatric first aid training has been completed, you will receive an email first aid booklet that supplies you with up-to-date information for the next three years. You will also be allowed to subscribe to video refreshers over three years to remind yourself how to execute certain aspects of first aid.

Our paediatric training course in Peterborough Cambridgeshire can be run as a weekday, weekend, or evening course; this will need to be discussed on booking. We also have more First Aid Courses available if this course isn’t what you’re looking for!
