Product Details

This one-day Emergency Paediatric First Aid course provides learners with an understanding of the key first aid injuries a parent or guardian of a child may come across. The training course will look at common concerns from child resuscitation, choking, seizures, bleeding and some minor injuries. 

The course is suitable for parents or guardians who occasionally look after children. If you are a childminder, nursery staff or primary school teacher, you should look at our 2-Day Level 3 Paediatric First Aid course which satisfies the guidelines and criteria as laid down by the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and ESTYN/Ofsted. This 6-hour training qualification is the first part of the 12-hour course.

Intended Audience

  • Primary School Teachers
  • Nursery nurses
  • Childminders
  • Parents

The Emergency Paediatric First Aid training course is made up of practical and theoretical sessions which include a range of topics focused on infants and children including:

  • Understanding the role and responsibilities of a paediatric first aider
  • Being able to safely assess an emergency situation
  • Being able to provide first aid for someone unresponsive and breathing
  • Being able to provide first aid for someone unresponsive and not breathing
  • Being able to provide first aid for someone suffering a seizure
  • Being able to provide first aid for someone who is choking
  • Being able to provide first aid to someone with external bleeding
  • Knowing how to provide first aid to someone who is suffering from shock
  • Know how to provide first aid to someone with bites, stings and minor injuries

The Emergency Paediatric First Aid training course will include a variety of interactive sessions including discussions, group break-out activities and practical scenarios with a variety of first aid equipment. All of these elements will build the candidates' knowledge to help them pass the assessments and to build their confidence to provide first aid.

The practical scenarios will include recovery position, resuscitation, the use of Automated External Defibrillators and blood loss with shock. All candidates need to be physically able to take part in these scenarios with many of them taking place on the floor.

Candidates should wear clothing that they feel comfortable with to support their learning while taking part in group discussions and practical sessions with other candidates. Candidates should be aware they will be practising placing one another in the recovery position and practising resuscitation. We, therefore, recommend flat shoes, and trousers and to be cautious of baggy low tops.

The price includes:

  • Registration with the Awarding Body and electronic certification
  • Paediatric First Aid Made Easy book to accompany the face-to-face training
  • Face shield key ring
  • Reminder card and pen
  • First Aid consumables for each candidate
  • Access to First Aid equipment to practise all scenarios in pairs
  • 1 day of face-to-face training with great trainers
  • Travel in the Swansea area

If there are additional costs, we will agree on these at the time of booking, for example, excess travel, off-site parking, and venue hire.

There is no post-course learning for the Emergency Paediatric First Aid training course.

You can arrange a program of support from Dewi Development Ltd for your staff, this can include ongoing coaching, annual Continual Professional Development or access to a debrief session.

The Continual Professional Development is recommended to be a half day and we can focus the topics around the needs of your staff and your business.

Your staff may wish to access a debrief session following a serious incident in which they utilised their skills and need to discuss the actions they took.

As a regulated qualification there are assessments to ensure the candidates have reached the required standard. The practicals and resource materials will help prepare all candidates for the assessments.

There is a multi-choice paper and 5 practical assessments which are built into the day. The practical assessments are observed as individuals develop their skills through the course.

Successful candidates will be issued with an Ofqual regulated Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid qualification by the awarding body Qualsafe.


The qualification lasts for three years and can be renewed by resitting the Level 3 Emergency Paediatric First Aid training course.

We can deliver the training course at your venue which has a suitable training room or we can support you in arranging a suitable external venue. Training at your venue can save you costs but be aware staff can be distracted by day-to-day concerns..

Locations will require:

  • Room big enough to sit 12 candidates to sit in a horseshoe
  • Tables for group work and assessment at the end of the session
  • Floor space to practise their first aid skills
  • Projector and screen with computer connection, however, we can provide a projector with a laptop

While we will deliver our courses across the country, we focus on supporting local businesses in south Wales from Cardigan to Haverfordwest, Carmarthen, Swansea, Cardiff and Newport.

The course will have three planned breaks per day, including lunch. Refreshments are NOT included when delivered at one of your venues, but tea and coffee will be included when delivered at a venue arranged by ourselves.

The Emergency Paediatric First Aid training course involves various practical sessions, where candidates will need to get down to the floor to practise their first aid skills. This will include practising recovery position and demonstrating effective resuscitation for a minimum amount of time. If you have any concerns about your candidates carrying out these activities, you should get in touch before booking the course.

If candidates have any physical or learning needs for the group work or for the assessment, this should be notified as part of the booking. We may be able to provide reasonable adjustments to support candidates learning, but we need to agree on all adjustments in advance with the Awarding Body.

Excellent, informative and practical. Certainly equips you with the knowledge and confidence to apply basic first aid and aed situations. This course should be part of the training given to every employee/student.
