Workshop Description
This first aid course is designed to support individuals to become paediatric first aid trained with the responsibility for the welfare on infants and children. The course will be of interest to teachers, child minders, early years practitioner’s parents and anyone who has a responsibility for the welfare of children and infants.
The few seconds after an accident are critical and can make a huge difference to a child’s life. This course will provide you with the knowledge and skills on how to administer basic first aid and the procedures to follow that could help to save the life of an infant or child in your care.
It focuses on emergency scenarios that those working in the Early Years may have to **** and gives them the knowledge and confidence to deal with situations.
