  • Additional Info

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 severe ‘everyday’ cases) or provide an essential short-term emergency stop-gap until professional medical assistance is in place.

Please be aware that having a theoretical knowledge on its own is not enough to be considered competent in paediatric first aid and a practical demonstration in some areas is required to complete this training. Please contact us to arrange this.

Target Audience

Paediatric first aid is a skill that would be useful for anyone that works with children and infants and includes those working in nursery, school and pre-school environments, as well as professional childminders, club leaders and sports coaches.

Advantages

Although it can sometimes be challenging in what are often emotionally-charged circumstances, First Aiders need to remain as calm and objective as possible, especially when there is a medical emergency. Having the training and knowledge to deal with the situation effectively, it’s essential to ensure the necessary support is given to the child or young person.
