First aid covers a multitude of skill sets and responses to many medical situations. Its primary aim, is
to provide immediate medical care and treatment that will either resolve the situation (in less
serious 'everyday' cases) or provide an essential short-term emergency stop-gap until professional
medical assistance is in place.
The aim of this course is to equip you with the theoretical knowledge, skills and confidence you need
to deal with paediatric first aid situations. It covers all of the key topics including: emergency
planning, assessing a situation, basic Life Support, CPR, shock, fractures, bleeding and a range of
other minor illness and injuries.
Please be aware that having a theoretical knowledge on its own is not enough to be considered
competent in paediatric first aid and practical demonstration in some areas is required to complete
this training. Please contact us to arrange this.
Paediatric first aid is a skill that would be useful for anyone that works with children and infants.
This includes those working in nursery, school and pre-school environments, as well as professional
childminders, club leaders and sports coaches.
