Paediatric First Aid

Our paediatric first aid courses are run in accordance with the Department of Education’s Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Statutory Framework and are regulated by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) in England and Wales and certificated for 3 years via our Awarding Organisation, Qualsafe Awards.

Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (RQF) - Blended

We are among the very few first aid training provider's in the UK that are able to offer the full (12 hour course) Level 3 Award in Paediatric first aid RQF qualification as a Blended course. Regulated by Ofqual and accredited by Qualsafe Awards our blended Paediatric first aid qualification meets the requirements of Ofsted and early years for nurseries, pre-schools, childminders and nannies.


This Blended approach has become our most popular course for childminders and childcare settings to complete their full paediatric first aid qualification as it’s an excellent alternative to the traditional 2 day classroom version, incorporating a single day's training alongside our interactive online e-learning package, providing the same level of qualification to that of the traditional course over 2 days, but saves time spent in the classroom and also reduces the costs involved.


The online part of the Blended course can be accessed on any device and as it is completely self-paced, you can decide how fast or slow your training goes which means you can fit the learning around your busy lifestyle. What’s more, after you have completed the course, you can refresh your knowledge and understanding by revisiting all the training materials. If you wish to exit the course at any time, simply close down your browser.


The blended course is made up of 2 parts to meet the 12 learning hours.

​Online Part: You will be sent a link to register for the online part when you book the course and this must be completed before attending the practical training part with a trainer

Practical Part: 1 day face to face training date with a trainer where you will have the opportunity to learn and demonstrate the practical elements of the course.

“We have been working with Red Hawk Training since June 2016. During this time they have provided high quality Paediatric First Aid training to our Norland Graduates. They have always been extremely accommodating and flexible in meeting our training needs. The feedback that we have received from our delegates has always been very positive and they regularly comment that it is the most comprehensive First Aid training they have received”
