AoFAQ Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid (QCF)

first-aid-for-babies-and-children-short

What is the Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid Course?

Here at Evince™ Training we are very excited about delivering the The AoFAQ Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid (QCF) qualification.

This is a one day regulated first aid qualification is specific to infants aged under 1, and children aged from 1 year old to the onset of puberty. If is ideal for parents and babysitters.

This qualification is the first unit (day one) of the AoFAQ Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid (QCF). This latter qualification meets the requirements of the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) as issued by the department for Education and Skills Foundation Stage relating to Early Years childcare.

What will we be doing?

We will train you to be prepared for paediatric emergencies that could strike at any time.  Whilst such emergencies are thankfully rare we will raise your awareness to provide vital support while waiting for professional paramedic treatment.  We want you to be reassured that any steps you take will follow the right approach.  We will work with mannequins so that you can get hands-on experience.  Preparing to provide paediatric first aid necessarily requires a very different approach to supporting adults.  Approaches to urgently supporting adults you may have picked up over the years are very unlikely to help babies and children, in fact real harm could be done.  We will provide you with simple, appropriate treatments for babies and children.  We anticipate that we will de-bunk the odd myth as well.

Evince Training Limited is extremely proud to be an authorised centre offering AoFAQ Regulated First Aid Qualifications. The fact that our courses marked with (QCF) are regulated by Ofqual, the Government’s office for qualifications, gives you confidence in our attention to detail and commitment to achieving and maintaining the highest standards. You also have the reassurance that by choosing our regulated courses you have complied with the employers requirement to exercise ‘due diligence’ placed on you by the HSE.

What do you get at the end?

This is a regulated level 3 qualification and is ideal for anyone who works with or comes into contact with infants and children in their working or voluntary roles. It is also ideal for babysitters, parents and families with young children who would like to learn first aid for their own peace of mind.

Further Training Available! The learner can progress to a range of qualifications with us including:

AoFAQ Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work
AoFAQ Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid
AoFAQ Level 2 Award in CPR and AED
AoFAQ Level 2 National Award in Safeguarding Children and Young People
