This course is ideal for teachers working in Early Years primary education, day and private nurseries, before and after school clubs and registered child minders. This qualification meets the standards required by Ofsted Early Years and the Chidlcare Register.

The DFE Statutory framework for the early years foundation stage recommends at least one person with a full ( two day ) PFA qualification must be on the premises and available at all times when children are present, and also on outings. The two day trained staff can be supported by staff holding the emergency PFA certificate.

Since 1 January 2014 all our courses include Automated External Defibrillator (AED) training in line with British Heart Foundation recommendations.
