Knowing how to respond in a medical emergency is invaluable for both parents and childcare workers. Paediatric First Aid courses give you the skills you need to be calm and confident in a crisis.
We offer a professional paediatric first aid for nannies, au pairs and other childcare workers, such as childminders, maternity nurses, mothers help, teachers and teaching assistants. Our courses meet the requirements for Ofsted registration. We run 6 hour first aid courses, 12 hour first aid course and parent first aid courses.
Nannies and some Au Pairs have responsibility for looking after children. OFSTED and most Au Pair agencies suggest that First Aid training is either essential or, at least, best practice. Synergy can offer courses to cover first aid for nannies, au pairs and others with the care of young children:
Both Nannies and Au Pairs will need to check on the most suitable course. Those registered to provide childcare registered by Ofsted on the Early Years Register, will need one of the 12 hour courses. There are some exemptions provided by The Childcare (Exemptions from Registration) Order 2008. The responsibility for ensuring that the correct course is taken rests with the student.
