About the course

The Paediatric First Aid Certificate is a mandatory component of the Early Years Educator Apprenticeship. Eden Training Solutions support all apprentices and employers, we work underneath the Qualifications Network UK who are one of the UK’s leading Awarding Organisations for First Aid and Safety qualifications. Working under this awarding body, our aim is to contribute to the reduction of workplace injuries and illness through effective training and education.

For Early Years/Childcare settings, the Paediatric First Aid qualification is one of the routes to achieving this aim; however, for learners to have effective education, they need highly competent trainers, sufficient resources, engaging learning environments and valid assessments. These high standards are maintained through our effective quality assurance processes.

Millies Mark

Millie's Mark

Millie’s Mark will be awarded as a special endorsement to childcare providers that go above and beyond these minimum requirements by having 100% of staff trained in paediatric first aid, and also ensuring that everything learned during the course is kept alive and in the forefront of practitioners’ minds so that they are confident, ready and capable.
