This course is designed for individuals who are involved in childcare, and meets the requirements of OFSTED, Sure Start, the National Childminding Association, the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, and the UK Resuscitation Guidelines (2010).  

We are on the list of first aid providers approved for North Yorkshire Early Years and Childcare providers.



The course is delivered across two days, or in shorter sessions for flexibility.  Sessions times can be arranged to meet your needs (weekdays, weekends, daytime or evening).  The courses are delivered and assessed by accredited trainers and assessors.

Entry requirements:

Students must be a minimum of 14 years of age and a certificate can be offered to all, subject to assessment.  A student cannot assume a responsibility in the workplace for children and infants until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the student is suitable for that role.  The certificate will expire as dated on the certificate, irrespective of age.
