Delivery

The course meets the criteria laid down in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) published by Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF), which became law in mainland Great Britain in 2008. (This legislation does not currently apply in Northern Ireland, but it is a useful standard for training and practice.)

Please note that, if required, any of our training courses can be delivered at weekends.

The course is assessed throughout through practical assessments and multiple choice question papers.

We can also deliver a one-day (six-hour) certificated course in Emergency Paediatric First Aid. As with the full Paediatric course, this training can be delivered on a timetable to suit you.
