QNUK Level 3 Award in
Paediatric First Aid
Why do you need Paediatric First Aid training?
- If a child was choking, 53% of parents stated they would try to get the object out using their fingers or another object; unfortunately anything pushed into a child’s throat could push the blockage further or damage the airway.
- Many parents are unaware of what to do in the event of an emergency. A massive 82% out of 2000 questioned parents with young children would not know what to do if their child started choking, was burned or even stopped breathing. Learn these valuable skills with us today!
- Allergic reactions can be frightening and time critical. Would you know how to react if confronted with a child unable to breath?

The booking process was easy and the lady on the phone answered all my questions and gave me the exact course I needed for my work place, the trainer on the day was smart, friendly and very professional, the course had plenty of practical input and kept us all engaged. One of the delegates has slight learning difficulties which we warned the company about upon booking, and the trainer was very patient , and they also passed which was amazing ,when the course was finished it didnt take long until we received the certificates, I will definitely be going back, from beginning to end it was professional, yet friendly and very good value for money!
What you need to know…
What should I consider when assessing first-aid needs?
Some small workplaces with low-level hazards may need the minimum provision for first aid. But there are circumstances and factors that will mean you need greater provision. You, as an employer, are well placed to decide the provision you need.
How many first-aiders do I need?
The findings of your first-aid needs assessment will help you decide how many first-aiders are required. There are no hard and fast rules on exact numbers and you will need to take into account all the relevant circumstances of your particular workplace.
Your employer is expected to have:
completed a first-aid needs assessment;
ensured that there is either an appointed person to take charge of first-aid arrangements or, if necessary, there are appropriate numbers of suitably trained first-aiders;
ensured their are adequate facilities and a suitable stocked first-aid box;
provided you with information about the first-ad arrangements.
In the event of injury or sudden illness, failure to provide first aid could result in a casualty’s death. The employer should ensure that an employee who is injured or taken ill at work receives immediate attention.
Is annual refresher training a mandatory requirement?
No. It is strongly recommended to employers to help trained first aiders maintain their basic skills and keep up to date with any changes in first-aid procedures.
HSE will prosecute in cases where there is a significant risk, a disregard for established standards or persistent poor compliance with the law.
