British Red Cross first aid training

Upcoming new legislation from the Department of Education requires all newly qualified level two and three child carers to have either an emergency paediatric first aid or full paediatric first aid certificate. At the Red Cross we are leading the way by updating our two day paediatric first aid course and introducing a new one day emergency paediatric first aid course. In addition, both courses also now include paediatric automated external defibrillator (AED) training.

The two day paediatric first aid course remains a legal requirement for at least one person in a professional child care service establishment, such as a nursery or for child carers who are solely responsible for children (including nursery class assistants who may be left alone with children).

Both courses are designed for people caring for children in any setting; equipping you with the knowledge and skills to act in a crisis. Additionally, they are recognised by Ofsted for the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and meets Childcare Registration requirements.

Paediatric first aid training from the Red Cross:

  • Is delivered through our conveniently located training venues across the UK
  • Is recommended by Ofsted and highlighted in the Early Years Foundation Stage framework
  • Teaches first aid skills for responding to accidents and medical conditions in babies and children
  • Provides certificates which are valid for three years

Our paediatric first aid training courses are available at the following venues: Abingdon, Barking, Belfast, Birmingham, Cardiff, Chislehurst, Croydon, Edinburgh, Euston, Glasgow, Harrow, Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle upon Tyne, Northampton, Nottingham, Salford, Sheffield, Southampton, Swindon and Wimbledon.
