  • Paediatric First Aid – RQF Level 3 Award– 2 day 12 hourtraining. The Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid has been developed to meet the requirements set out in the Department for Education’s statutory framework for the early year’s foundation stage (2014) for first-aid training in Ofsted-regulated childcare settings. Successful completion of the training programme will provide candidates with the essential knowledge and skills to undertake the role of paediatric first aider in a variety of childcare settings. In particular, it teaches basic life-support skills and cardiopulmonary resuscitation, to enable candidates to deal with life-threatening emergencies, as well as how to manage common paediatric illnesses, injuries and emergencies.

The Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid has been developed for candidates working in childcare, or those otherwise responsible for caring for infants and children, who are not required to have an Ofsted/EYFS qualification but want to learn about emergency paediatric first aid. While this qualification does not meet Ofsted/EYFS requirements for childcare professionals, it can contribute to the required 12 hours of training if candidates subsequently wish to attain the Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid.

Recent changes to the First Aid training and certification system have resulted in there being three main training routes available to people requiring first aid courses:

  • RQF Levelled First Aid Courses – Nationally recognised & certified through an awarding authority
  • Voluntary Society First Aid Courses – Delivered by St John Ambulance & Red Cross
  • First Aid Organisation First Aid Courses – Internally verified by the organisation

The HSE does not now regulate First Aid Awards.

As such, it’s important you choose your provider carefully. The North Yorkshire Outdoor Learning Service has all of its First Aid Courses externally validated and accredited through Qualifications Network. This means that all of our courses are nationally recognised and delivered to RQF standards. This means you can rest assured that your course is being delivered by qualified and experienced trainers who will design the course around your needs as much as is possible.Some of the courses can be combined together. For example the Level 2 Award in Basic Life Support and Management of Anaphylaxis can be added to a Level 2 Award in Emergency First aid at Work or the Level 3 Award in First aid at work. This is only available on courses run specifically for a client, not on our open courses. Please enquire if this is of interest to you.
