In the UK professional child care providers such as Nannies, Nursery Carers, and Childminders must complete a suitable paediatric First Aid Course at regular intervals. Our 12 Hour Care for Children programme meets regulatory requirements necessary for such a first aid course.
The course includes both primary care (CPR) and secondary care (first aid) skills. The primary care portion of the course prepares the rescuer to render aid to an infant or child with a life-threatening emergency such as choking or cardiac arrest. Secondary care focuses on developing secondary patient care skills and building the rescuer’s confidence to render first aid to an infant or child in need when emergency medical services are either delayed or unavailable. The Care for Children course content is based on guidelines from the Paediatric Working Group ofILCOR.

This is the blended option so you will be supplied with some materials prior to the course for you to read and complete the require knowledge reviews at your leisure, then attend one day classroom session between 6 -8 hours to complete all of the practical elements of the course AFTER completing (and passing) the theory exam, which will be undertaken as the first activity after reviewing the knowledge reviews
