Assessment and certification: No independent assessment is necessary for the paediatric first aid training as the tutor will carry out an ongoing assessment during the course itself. All delegates will receive a Certificate of Attendance (subject to passing the assessment) which is valid for 3 years. In addition to the care for the children, staff also need to have general first aid cover.
As low risk places of employment for most nurseries and schools, an Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) qualification will be sufficient with enough staff trained to cover absences caused by holidays, training, sickness and other factors.
The Childcare Register is for providers who care for children aged up to 17. There are two parts – one is compulsory, one is voluntary. For more information please visit the OFSTED Early Years and Childcare Registers page for useful information.
