This is a practical course, with plenty of hands on skill development, and it is lots of fun as well!

It is designed to meet the requirements of registered childminders and the requirements for first aid for nannies in Scotland. It is ideal for those working in a childcare setting - nursery, kindergarten, home childcare provider.

Also very suitable for parents and families of young children who would like to know a bit more than the basics of first aid for infants and children.

Theoretical training and practical scenarios are used together to incrementally develop skills throughout the course.   Come prepared to be active and participate in progressive scenario practice.

Please note, this course does not meet the needs of Ofsted first aid for Early Years Foundation Stage requirements.  If you need to satisfy Ofsted requirements, or would prefer to demonstrate best practice in your Scottish childcare setting, please select our Paediatric First Aid 2 Day course instead.
