Paediatric First Aid


This 12-hour Paediatric First Aid course is suitable for any childcare professionals e.g. nannies, nursery workers, children’s activity providers and early years teachers. It will give you the knowledge and skills to provide the initial treatment for a range of baby and child First Aid conditions and incidents, in a prompt, safe and effective manner.


The course is interactive and assessed through both practical scenarios and written questions, and the accredited certificate lasts for three years. If you have completed this course at least once face to face with a trainer, then you can choose a blended option where the first 6 hours are completed online, followed by 6 hours in a classroom.


We also offer the 6 hour Emergency Paediatric First Aid qualification for childcare assistants, which forms day 1 of the 12 hour course.

Topics include:

  • Role of the Paediatric First Aider
  • Incident management
  • Unconscious casualties and the safe airway position
  • Choking
  • Bleeding and shock
  • Anaphylaxis
  • CPR and the safe use of a defibrillator
  • Seizures
  • Minor injuries
  • Childhood illnesses


£115 per person for the full 12 hours face to face or £85 per person for 6 hours online and 6 hours in a classroom. This includes a paediatric manual and accredited certificate valid for 3 years (min. 6 and max. 12 participants). Private group rates on request.


The 6 hour Emergency Paediatric First Aid course costs £65 per person also including a paediatric manual and accredited certificate valid for 3 years (min. 6 and max. 12 participants). Private group rates on request.


We can run the course at any suitably sized venue or can source a venue for you at your cost, if required.

| Primary Survey |

When you come across a casualty, you'll need to conduct a 'primary survey' to assess the situation and possibly save their life. This short video clip shows you how!

Thank you so much Louise, the girls LOVED it! They came home brimming with advice for us and wanting to practice the recovery position on everyone. Hopefully they won’t ever need to use their new knowledge but I’m so glad they have it! And they hugely enjoyed learning it.Eliza

Louise was very energetic and engaging and the session was informative, giving key information without being overwhelming. All the explanations were very clear and it was brilliantly practical – this type of teaching sticks!Sam

Louise makes learning first aid easy and she gives you confidence in giving it a go. The course has a great format and lots of humour makes it very memorable.Lou

Louise was brilliant with our group of 6 year olds. She set just the right pace & covered so much. The children came away proud of what they had learnt and confident to try out their new skills. A really worthwhile 1.5 hours. Thank you so much!Catherine

The course was excellent and this is an integral life skill to take away and not JUST a certificate you "should have" or "need to get to qualify".  Louise delivers all the information in a clear and fun way which means staying engaged throughout the day.Will

Louise runs an amazing first aid course. I came away feeling confident that I am now able to help in any situation if it was to arise.Jasmine
