Highfield Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (Blended 1 Day Learning) for Sports and After School Clubs
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.
This qualification is assessed by the following two methods:
- Practical assessment – there will be continual assessment by the tutor as participants demonstrate the practical first aid skills, during the face to face session
- Theory assessment – Learners must answer a series of written questions prior to the session using the Highfield assessment paperwork. Each learner will receive a copy of a first aid book and email support from a tutor to assist their understanding.
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.
If your organisation requires more than 12 staff to be trained, additional trainers can be booked for the same date.
Firstly, you must decide if you are a high or low risk environment. Next you must consider how many staff you employ. The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) provides a table showing what First Aid qualifications/ training your organisation requires:
