First Aid for those caring for children. Be aware of possible emergencies and be properly equipped to deal with them.
The Ofsted requirements for Nannies and Au Pairs depend on whether registration is required. If you choose to register, in most cases people working with children including Nannies, Au Pairs, Childminders, Nursery Workers and Childcare Workers still need the 2 days 12-hour course to meet the requirements. If you are looking at also entering other childcare sectors, then the full 2 days or our blended paediatric course would be best.
Regulations for the Childcare Register require the childminder or home child care to have an appropriate first aid qualification. However, it is for the provider to determine whether these minimum standards are appropriate for the type of care they provide and whether more advanced training or qualification is required.
This one day or online/blended course is for Nannies and Au Pairs who do not need to register. This 6 contact hour course can be taken as a classroom course or blended using ProNanny.co.uk and is also ideal as an annual refresher for any paediatric first aid course.
All our first aid courses fully meet the UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2021 as per the HSE requirements.
The content of this and all our courses has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines and come with a Certified CPD Statement as well as a National MedicAid Certificate and for online courses an Evidence-Based Learning statement.
