Changes to First Aid Training for Childcare Sector Regarding changes circulating within the Childcare sector we have fully researched the First Aid training requirements and summarise our findings below: Nanny, Au Pair, Babysitter - Paediatric First Aid – 6 hours - There is no set minimum that this course should take. Our syllabus meets the needs of the Voluntary part of the Ofsted Childcare Register, which many Nannies are now opting to join. Registered Childminder - Paediatric First Aid – 12 hours - In line with the Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework (EYFS) our course covers all topics required by Ofsted. Nursery or Pre - School - Paediatric First Aid – 12 hours - In line with the EYFS our course covers all topics required by Ofsted. Foundation Stage Teachers - Paediatric First Aid – 12 hours - The EYFS requires that at least one person in a school holds a twelve hour certificate in PFA. The EYFS guidance applies to those who deal with 4, 5 and rising 6 year olds. School staff Teaching & Support - Emergency First Aid for Schools - 6 hours - In line with the guidance from The Department of Children, Schools and Families, this course is child orientated and suitable for all school staff who support First Aiders. After School clubs - Emergency First Aid for Schools - 6 hours Or Paediatric First Aid – 12 hours - Ofsted will expect the course to be relevant to the age of the children. If under 5’s are present we recommend the 12 hour course. The general guidance, as we see it, is if under 5’s are involved then even if the 12 hour course is not a requirement we still recommend it. The guidance from Ofsted regularly highlights the need for the training to be relevant to the age of the child / children being cared for. It is important to note that changes regularly occur, so relevant websites are listed below so you can stay up-to-date. www.ofsted.gov.uk www.dfes.gov.uk www.surestart.gov.uk Approved First Aid Training Testimonials Here are some of many positive comments our students have made regarding our courses: “Excellent course.
