Overview of Support offered

This Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid (RQF) accredited course has been designed to provide the knowledge and skills required to enable any person working or living within a childcare environment to provide effective emergency paediatric first aid if required. It is suitable for anyone aged 16+ such as parents, pre-school or nursery staff, toddler group volunteers, and foster parents.
Learners will be shown how to carry out lifesaving techniques on babies and toddlers using practice Anne dolls, and will be closely supervised to ensure their methods are correct. Their confidence will begin to grow as they are nurtured and guided in how to aid the most vulnerable in our society.

SainTs Training has been delivering numerous course to its mentees for many years and with this latest addition to our deliverables, we hope this continue to grow.
