NEW – paediatric first aid qualifications

Paediatric first aidTwo new qualifications are now available from HABC covering the area of paediatric first aid.

The qualifications, the HABC Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (QCF) (601/3867/1) and the HABC Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid (QCF) (601/4251/0), have been designed to replace the previous HABC Level 2 Award in Paediatric First Aid (QCF), which is being discontinued.

Registrations for the Level 2 qualification ceased on 31 August 2014 and HABC Approved Centres have a maximum of 6 weeks from this date to complete their programmes (unless special considerations are applied) and apply for learner certifications. The two new qualifications came into effect from 1 September 2014.

The paediatric first aid qualification is worth 3 credits on the QCF and is typically delivered over 2 days. It contains units covering emergency paediatric first aid and managing paediatric illness, injuries and emergencies.

The emergency paediatric first aid qualification is worth 1 credit on the QCF and can be delivered in just 1 day. It consists of one unit, covering what learners need to know on emergency paediatric first aid.

Both qualifications are assessed through practical demonstrations, as well as written and oral questioning.

If you are not currently approved to deliver paediatric first aid and would like to offer these new qualifications, then please speak to your HABC account manager. If you are currently approved to deliver paediatric first aid, you will be required to complete the first aid declaration, which can be obtained through your HABC account manager.

If you are a HABC Approved Centre, please contact your account manager for more details. If you are not already a HABC Approved Centre but would be interested in offering these qualifications through HABC, please call us on 0845 226 0350 or email info@highfieldabc.com
