Highfield Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (PFA)
Our Essex, Kent and London-based Highfield Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (PFA) course ensures at least one Early Years practitioner in a setting has a full Paediatric First Aid (PFA) certificate, as per Ofsted guidelines.
All newly qualified entrants to the early years workforce who have completed a level 2 and/or level 3 qualification on or after 30 June 2016, must also have either a full PFA or an emergency PFA certificate within three months of starting work in order to be included in the required staff: child ratios.
This nationally accredited qualification meets the highest standards in training set by Ofsted and fully meets the statutory requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
This qualification also meets the requirements for accredited training as described by Millie’s Mark Foundation for settings wishing to gain this status.
The qualification is valid for a period of three years after which point learners must retake the course. In addition, annual refresher training is strongly recommended.
