Latest Paediatric First Aid criteria – from 3rd April 2017

Paediatric First Aid Criteria

Since the implementation of the latest version of EYFS Statutory Framework (3.4.2017), Early Years settings now have a duty to make sure that the training that they give their staff meets all the requirements. Albany Training have produced an easy to read but comprehensive sheet showing the full criteria that we meet when delivering the Paediatric First Aid courses.  If you require a copy of this information for your training files, then please just email us at http://info@albanytraining.co.uk and we will send you a copy.
