Having the correct Paediatric First Aid provision is not only a statutory requirement for the majority of childcare providers, it is extremely important for the safety of children. Our Paediatric First Aid Level 3 course is ideal for those who work or intend to work in a childcare setting as it has been specifically designed to fulfil Ofsted’s first aid requirements for early years teachers, nursery workers and childminders (as defined within the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage 2014 and within the Child Care Register guide).
Successful delegates will learn the roles and responsibilities of the paediatric first aider, and will be equipped with the necessary skills to administer safe and effective treatment when dealing with a range of paediatric first aid situations.

We would like to advise you regarding our new options that would be available to qualify or re-qualify delegates as a Paediatric First Aider. We have been working very closely with our awarding bodies to provide the 2 options below:
6 hours GEM Video Training and 1-day Classroom Delivery
(Attendees will receive joining instructions to complete our GEM Blended Learning First Aid video training which is the first part of the Paediatric First Aid training which is to be completed before attending one of our face to face training session. Our video training course is intended to give an introduction into the course which will be built on when attending our face to face session.)
2-day Conventional Classroom Delivery
(Attend one of our conventional 2-day public courses, at one of our local training venues.)
Upon successful completion, attendees will be awarded a nationally recognised Ofqual regulated certificate valid for 3 years that fully meets Ofsted requirements and will receive a Paediatric First Aid handbook to keep for future reference. Attendees of this course will also have exclusive free access to our GEM First Aid annual refresher video training, presented by our GEM trainers, each year until certificate renewal is needed in 3 years’ time.

** As of 10/12/2021, we will remain open following the Government moving to Plan B in response to the risks of the Omicron variant.
The health and well-being of our delegates and dedicated team will still remain a priority, which is why we want to reassure all delegates before attending, that we are taking extra steps to ensure the protection of attendees on our courses to maintain high standards concerning hygiene through this time. We have always maintained the highest standards of cleanliness with all our training equipment, but in addition to our usual hygiene processes which include regularly using disinfectant wipes and changing manikin lungs, we are also now giving all delegates their own training pack. Included in this pack will be a brand new and sealed bandages and gloves for use during the training.
Wearing masks on arrival and when moving around the building are not mandatory however masks will always be available on entry giving our visitors the opportunity to wear a mask if they wish to do so and hand sanitisation stations will be available throughout our facilities.**
This 6 hour face-to-face session follows 6 hours of Video Training delivered by our own GEM Trainers. This will be the first part of your Paediatric First Aid training which will need to be completed before you attend your chosen 6 hour face to face training session. Our video training course is intended to give you an introduction into the course which will be built on when you attend your face to face session.
Our 2 day Paediatric First Aid Level 3 (RQF) course has been specifically designed to meet the criteria set by the Department for Education’s EYFS Framework and fully meets Ofsted requirements. Successful candidates will learn the roles and responsibilities of the paediatric first aider, and will be equipped with the necessary skills to administer safe and effective treatment when dealing with a range of paediatric first aid situations.More Information
