Care L&D

About this course

This course is suitable for anyone who cares for infants and children such as parents, grandparents, guardians, nannies and meets the first aid training needs of newly qualified level two or three early years childcare who are working in early years settings.

Babies and children are naturally inquisitive and have not yet developed an understanding of what could potentially cause them harm. Often, they are pre-verbal; therefore, they cannot articulate how they might be feeling, or feel discomfort due to an illness or injury.

Hence it is vital to have the knowledge, skills, and confidence to know what to do in an emergency when looking after babies and children. Whether it’s a pre-schooler choking on a piece of fruit, a toddler having a febrile convulsion, or an accident while out and about, having relevant and an up to date first aid qualification is essential.

This EPFA course will provide delegates with the opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge needed to deal with a range of paediatric first aid situations, including: managing an unresponsive infant or child, CPR, choking, seizures, external bleeding and more.


What you’ll learn

a Understand the role and responsibilities of the paediatric first aider.

a Respond to a range of accidents and first aid emergencies they could encounter in the workplace, whether the infant/child is conscious or unconscious.

a Record and report accidents and incidents including RIDDOR.

Owing to the practical nature of this course a basic level of general fitness is required, delegates must be physically able to carry out the procedures detailed in the course outline. Should you have any questions relating to the accessibility of this course please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Simulated competency assessments will take place throughout the session, supervised by one of our trainers, allowing delegates to return to the workplace and embed the learning further, until deemed competent within their organisation’s guidelines and protocols.
