First Aid Training for domestic staff and hotel staff

In an emergency, a domestic worker needs to react quickly and effectively. Knowing what to do could save a child’s life and many of you work in households with children. We run Paediatric Child Safety & First Aid courses, these courses are also suitable for Nannies wishing to join the Voluntary part of the Ofsted Childcare Register.

More info plus dates can be found here

Course time:

The course is held for nannies and Au pairs on a monthly basis and it’s Ofsted approved so this means you can use it to your Ofsted certificate. Our syllabus meets the requirement for the Voluntary part of the Ofsted Childcare Register, which many Nannies and Aupairs are now opting to join so that their employers can get tax credits. Your employer may well be willing to pay for your first aid certificate. It should be updated every 3 years at least.

The OCR required syllabus covers such topics as:

– First Aid Priorities / Dealing with an Emergency

– Choking

– Resuscitation (CPR) – Child and Baby

– Anaphylaxis

– Bleeding and Shock

– Burns & Scalds

– Eye & Ear injuries

– Fractures

– Childhood illnesses including Meningitis and Febrile Convulsions

Those delegates who complete the course are awarded a certificate that is valid for three years.

Course fee is only £120 inc VAT

Course instructions:

•  The Course is held in our offices. Please enquire what floor when booking.

•  10am until 4pm approx (Please make sure you arrive approximately 9.50am to make sure you don’t miss the start.)

•  Lunch break when you can stay and network or go out and get food
