Our on-site, UK-wide Highfield Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (Blended 1 Day Learning) for Sports and After School Clubs is designed for anyone working or volunteering with children aged 5-16 years.
This comprehensive course ensures that your staff and volunteers are fully trained in all aspects of paediatric first aid.
This course is suitable for anyone who works or volunteers in youth clubs, sports clubs or any after school activity clubs.
It is crucial that anyone in contact with children and young people are fully trained in first aid and know what to do in an emergency.
