With the recent news in The Telegraph newspaper under new plans, all new staff will have to have level 2 or level 3 first aid training if they want to work in nurseries.
Sam Gyimah, the childcare minister will set out the plans in the wake of the death of Millie Thompson who choked to death in a nursery in 2012. He told the Telegraph that he expects all staff to be trained in first aid in the countrys nurseries "within 2 or 3 years".
At Green Cross training we can provide both the Emergency Paediatric and Paediatric first aid courses. Our Level 3 QCF syllabus for the award in Paediatric first aid (SCQF Level 6 AWARD Scotland) is a two-day course and satisfies the guidelines and criteria as defined by the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and OFSTED. This course covers the emergency scenarios that are faced by professionals, including teachers, au pairs and playgroup leaders, and anyone looking after young children.
