Paediatric First Aid Course by Eden Training Solutions

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 under the Qualifications Network UK which is 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.

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.

When your setting gains the Millie’s Mark accreditation, you provide reassurance for your parents that all childcare practitioners know what to do in a paediatric first aid situation. It acknowledges that children’s safety is at the forefront of your mind when you care for children.

Eden will provide support through Eden Paediatrics to ensure employers are accredited to this industry quality mark.
