1 day Emergency Paediatric Syllabus
The OFSTED requirements for Nannies and Au Pairs state that a minimum 6 hour child care course is required. Childminders, nursery workers and child workers still need the 2 day 12 hour course to meet their requirements.
If you are looking at also entering other childcare sectors, then the full 2 day course would be best. This one day course meets the needs of the voluntary part of the Ofsted Childcare Register for Nannies and Au Pairs.
This course can be taught as a QCF Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid.
Duration: This course covers at least 6 hours of training and is usually run over 1 day though can be run as shorter sessions if required.
The training is always the same regardless of the certificate you choose. Both certificate options include a First Aid training pack.
Please contact us to enquire about holding a course at your own venue or workplace.
