Highfield Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid (RQF)

Description

This one-day Emergency Paediatric First Aid course has been designed for those who have an interest in child and infant basic life support.

Course Objectives

  • Responsibilities and reporting
  • Resuscitation
  • Dealing with an unresponsive casualty
  • Minor injuries
  • Assessment of the situation
  • Epilepsy
  • Wounds and bleeding
  • Anaphylaxis and Shock.

Course Prerequisites

If you have a professional interest, i.e. you are a child-minder or school teacher, then this course partly fulfils the requirements of Ofsted and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Ofsted and the Early Years Foundation Stage require you to have 12 hours of paediatric first aid training, so the 2-Day Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid would be required to fulfil their requirements.

Course Outcome

Practical skills are assessed by continuous observation by the trainer and there is a written assessment paper to check understanding.

Duration

1 day
