The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage is a document published by The Department for Children, Schools and Families and applies to Early Years childcare within England, Wales and Northern Ireland. 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 TQUK Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (RQF) is recognised as a qualification that fulfils this need.

To comply with current requirements in the childcare sector, you must take this qualification again after three years.  This must be taken as the two days again, there is no shorter course if you have taken the course before.

All successful students will be issued with a Paediatric First Aid Certificate, along with a wallet-sized plastic card detailing their achievement. The childcare sector dictates, that to be valid when working in the childcare sector, learners must retake the Paediatric First Aid qualification before the expiry of 3 years from the date that the original qualification was achieved.   Please contact ProTrainings for further information
