The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage is a document published by The Department for Education and applies to Early Years childcare. The Statutory Framework states that ‘at least one person who has a current paediatric first aid certificate must be on the premises at all times when children are present. There must be at least one person on outings who has a current paediatric first aid certificate.’ The HABC Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid is recognised as a qualification that fulfils this need.
All successful students will be issued with a Paediatric First Aid certificate, along with a wallet-sized plastic card detailing their qualification.
Open courses are inclusive of tuition, examination fees and a course handbook. Free follow up support will also be available
from your tutor.
