Manual Handling Training

Whilst working with children can be massively rewarding, it is also far less predictable, meaning that accidents can happen much more easily. Knowing what to do should these accidents occur can mean the difference between a minor injury and a major, even fatal, accident. Paediatric first aid training allows you to react quickly and effectively in an emergency situation, as well as calmly and safely.

About the course…

Offered as both a one and two day course (depending on the level of knowledge you require), the content does not differ but the depth at which each area will be explored, of course, does. The two-day course is, naturally, more intensive, covering each element in greater detail. This would be best suited for those working with younger children and/or babies. Whilst the one day course would be sufficient for individuals working with children up to the age of 8.

Our paediatric first aid courses meet the requirements outlined by OFSTED and the Childcare Register but the course – as with every other available course in the country – is not approved by OFSTED, as this is not something that the body awards.

As well as schools, those working towards their Early Years educator qualification or an NVQ in childcare and education, organisations that typically require this type of training include:

  • Day nurseries
  • Private nursery schools
  • Pre-schools
  • Before and after school clubs and organisations for children in the early years age group
  • Childminders, au pairs and carers of children at home

What you will learn…

Each of the following subjects are covered on both the one- and two-day course:

  • Legislation
  • Contents of a first aid kit
  • Recording of accidents
  • Recovery position
  • CPR babies and children
  • Asthma
  • Embedded foreign objects
  • Fainting
  • Febrile convulsions, infantile convulsion
  • Diabetes
  • Shock
  • Meningitis
  • Choking
  • Bleeding (minor and major)
  • Cross infection
  • Anaphylactic reactions
  • Breaks and fractures
  • Sprains and strains
  • Heat exhaustion
  • Hypothermia
  • Head injuries
  • Burns and scalds
  • Eye injuries

How you will be assessed…

There will not be a final examination upon completing this course – but you will be required to demonstrate, in a practical setting, what you have learned. This will allow your instructor to confirm that you have progressed to the necessary level to pass the course.

Where the course takes place…

Offering you as much flexibility as possible, this course can be delivered on-site at your business location (often the preferred option for many organisations) or off-site at a more suitable venue in Liverpool. If you require support identifying such a location, just let us know and a member of the team will be happy to help.
