As of April 2017 new government legislation requires all new nursery and pre-school staff to undertake paediatric first aid as a compulsory measure in-line with recently published guidelines set by The Department of Education.
This means all newly qualified staff with a childcare level 2 and 3 qualification must have either an emergency paediatric first aid or full paediatric first aid certificate which must be refreshed every 3 years.
In addition nurseries with 100% of staff working directly with children trained in paediatric first aid and who achieve ‘Gold Standard’ first aid provision, will be awarded with a newly created certificate which will be known as ‘Millie’s Mark’. Nurseries who are awarded this certificate will be able to display this to show parents that their children are being cared for by well trained, knowledgeable staff in a safe environment.
Both our Paediatric First aid and Emergency Paediatric First aid courses meet the requirements of the Department for Education (First Aid) syllabus guidelines, Ofsted requirements for registered childminders and the requirements for nannies under the DfES Approved Carers Scheme. Beyond this, we will always look to tailor the course to the most relevant requirements of your particular child care environment.In addition we offer a further course in Safe Use Of An Automated External Defibrillator [AED] in accordance with Department of Education guidelines published in June 2017. Information on how to obtain AEDs in schools and nurseries is available here.
Together with your input we can provide courses that are suited to fit your needs and tailored to your particular work environment. We provide highly trained instructors specialised within the education sector, who through their experience and understanding, can not only work around you and the best interests of your school or nursery, but also, and perhaps more importantly, provide a bespoke service that ensures the best possible protection for your employees and pupils.
Lastly, our trainers are all experienced and understand the workings of a busy school or education facility. Therefore our instructors are able to work around the requirements of the students, staff and timetable. For further information please fill out our contact form below or call on 0845 0041746.

We offer all our programmes as ‘in-house’ courses at your premises or we can arrange a suitable off-site venue (although this second option would involve additional costs).
