The qualification is designed for learners with a responsibility for the care of children and babies on a professional level providing the knowledge and practical competence to deal with a range of paediatric first aid situations.
This 12-hour qualification meets the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage. It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure adequate numbers of appropriately trained personnel.
The qualification is available to learners aged 16 or over.
Due to the practical nature of the first aid assessment there are physical demands and learners must be able to demonstrate their skills as in a real-life situation. An example of this would be to demonstrate CPR on a manikin at floor level.
It is recommended that learners should hold a minimum of Level 1 in literacy or equivalent to undertake this qualification.
It may be possible to allocate a reasonable adjustment to a learner who has a disability, medical condition or learning need; learners should contact their training provider to discuss. Any reasonable adjustments granted must be in line with the FAA Reasonable Adjustments Policy.
The qualification has 12 assigned guided learning hours (GLH) and 15 hours total qualification time (TQT). GLH indicates the number of classroom contact hours that the learner will undertake. TQT includes GLH but also takes into account any unsupervised learning and is an estimate of how long the average learner will take to complete the qualification.
The minimum classroom contact time of 12 hours must be delivered over a minimum of 2 days. The course can be spread over a maximum of 6 weeks, ensuring that each session is a minimum of two hours. The class ratio for this qualification is a maximum of 12 learners to 1 Trainer/Assessor.
The qualification is valid for three years from the date of achievement. It is recommended that the learner attends annual refresher training.
The learner will need to complete the full course again to requalify for a further three years.
Learners who achieve this qualification may progress on to other related qualifications within first aid. FAA also offer qualifications in health
& safety, food safety, safeguarding and first aid for mental health should learners wish to diversify.
