Paediatric courses in Essex

What is in our Paediatric First Aid Training course?

Paediatric first aid training is required by many working with children. This 12 hour course is designed for people who have responsibility for children within their work duties. Updated to reflect both the latest medical practice but also the current guidance from EYFS and OFSTED, this course is essential for childminders and those working in early years settings.

Hopefully an emergency will never arise, but if it where to occur the confident application of basic skills in the first few minutes can make a drastic difference.

What do you cover?

The delegates receive instruction in:

  • Developing and maintaining an emergency plan;
  • Communication with the emergency  services;
  • How to perform Cardio-pulmonary resuscitation;
  • First aid for the unconscious casualty;
  • First aid for the wounded or bleeding;
  • Choking;
  • Head injuries;
  • Dealing with foreign bodies in the eye, ear and nose;
  • Problems caused by extremes of  temperature;
  • Medical conditions such as Asthma and Meningitis;
  • Anaphylactic shock;
  • Caring for the unwell child;

We now run our courses at West Leigh Baptist Church.

There is free parking available onsite.

Courses typically start at 1000 at weekends. We ask that you arrive about 10-15 minutes before the course is due to start and report to the building’s reception. Here you will be meet by some of our team and directed towards the training room.

All our first aid courses are highly practical so we advise that you wear old, comfortable clothing as you will be rolling around on the floor and many of our first aid courses include the use of fake blood. We use proper “stage” blood which is designed to wash off clothes, skin and hair, but it’s best to wear older clothing.
