Would you know what to do if a child in your
care needed first aid?

Having the correct paediatric first aid provision is
not only a statutory requirement for the majority of
childcare providers, it is extremely important for the
safety of children.

The QA Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (QCF)
qualification is ideal for those who work or intend to
work in a childcare setting as it has been specifically
designed to fulfil Ofsted’s first aid requirements for
early years teachers, nursery workers and childminders
(as defined within the Statutory Framework for the Early
Years Foundation Stage 2014 and within the Child Care
Register guide).

Successful candidates will learn the roles and
responsibilities of the paediatric first aider, and will be
equipped with the necessary skills to administer safe
and effective treatment when dealing with a range of
paediatric first aid situations.
