Remember, when assessing your first aid needs that you need to take into account any staff that you have working on site (teachers, nursery assistants etc.) and any members of the public (parents, visitors etc.) and therefore may also need first aiders qualified in First Aid at Work or Emergency First Aid at Work.

We are able to offer a combined Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work & Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid qualification and combined Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work & Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid.  These provide both the “at work” and “paediatric” first aid requirements, without learners having to complete multiple courses.

Paediatric first aid qualifications are also ideal for parents who wish to gain better first aid knowledge in case of having to administer first aid on a child.
