Paediatric First Aid Course – Blended (50% online & 50% classroom) EYFS Course

Paediatric First Aid Course – Blended (50% online & 50% classroom) EYFS Course

This is the Full Paediatric First Aid course as detailed in the 2021 edition of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and is therefore the qualification accepted by OFSTED when inspecting registered childcare settings.

The Blended Paediatric First Aid course is split in to two parts; a six hour tutor-led classroom based component and a six hour e-Learning component.  The e-Learning component can be stopped and re-started, so does not have to be sat in one six hour session, but must be completed before the tutor-led classroom day!

Delegates will be sent details of the online part of the course approximately fourteen days before the tutor-led classroom based day.  The online part must be successfully completed before the tutor-led classroom day (short assessment at the end of the e-Learning with a maximum of three attempts).
