The new qualifications, which were launched 1 February 2019, are the Highfield Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (RQF) 603/3846/5 and the Highfield Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid (RQF) 603/3847/7.
Important changes to the Highfield Level 3 Emergency Paediatric First Aid (RQF) qualification include the removal of criteria specifically covering PPE, first-aid kits and the completion of accident or incident reports.
Changes to the Highfield Level 3 Paediatric First Aid (RQF) qualification include the removal of the same criteria, but with the addition of using a training device autoinjector.
Please note, the new qualifications have different registrations, qualification specifications and assessment paperwork. Centres must ensure they are purchasing or requesting the correct registrations and using the correct corresponding paperwork when delivering the new qualifications.
Any registrations held for the qualifications due to expire can be exchanged for new qualification registrations by your account manager.
