During this qualification, learners are assessed by their trainer across 8 different first aid competencies as follows:

Successful learners will receive 2 Qualsafe Awards certificates:

Both of these certificates are valid for a period of 3 years from the date of successful completion.

The requirement of the Health and Safety Executive and Ofsted is that these certificate are renewed before the certificate

This combined qualification is for people who work and deal with First Aid on children as well as with First Aid at work incidents, and enables them to be a workplace First-Aider under the Health and Safety (First Aid) regulations 1981, and  a Paediatric First-Aider under the requirements of The Early Years Foundation Stage.


This qualification is based on the Health and Safety Executive’s training standard for the delivery of First Aid at Work and Annex A of the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Our combined First Aid qualification will allow learners to be able to deal with a wide range of paediatric emergencies, illnesses and injuries, as well as that of more specific First Aid at Work illnesses and Emergencies for example, Heart Attack and Stroke.


This qualification should be seen as the start of a training cycle that ensures a high level of competence throughout the life of the resulting certificate. The Health and Safety Executive and Ofsted both recommend annual refresher training in order to maintain their First Aid competencies to a high standard.


What does the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations say about First-Aiders?


The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 states that an employer should provide equipment and facilities adequate and appropriate in circumstances for enabling first-aid to be administered to employees if they are injured or become ill at work. The employer must undertake a First Aid Needs assessment to determine the number of First Aid boxes and First-Aiders required to ensure they have met the legal legislation.


The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 provides requirements to ensure that employers have trained their staff to suitable level, from a course which meets the requirements of the Health and Safety Executive. It states that employers should ensure that they have First Aid cover for staff holidays and illness.


We have provided a link to our First Aid Needs assessment Calculator on all our First Aid qualification description pages as well as in the paragraph above.  


What does the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)  say about First-Aiders?


The EYFS  states that at least one person with a paediatric first aid certificate must be on the premises and available at all times when children are present, and must also accompany children when they go on outings. We would advise settings to go over and above this requirement and even consider training for all staff. This will ensure first aid cover when staff are unwell or on holiday.

The EYFS also states that any members of Staff who are new to the Early Years sector, must complete AT LEAST the Emergency Paediatric First Aid qualification within three months of starting in order to be counted in the staff:child ratios.

Fully meets the EYFS requirements.

This combined qualification aims to benefit learners by enabling them to attain the knowledge and practical competencies needed to deal with a wide range of workplace and paediatric first aid emergencies, injuries and illnesses, enabling them to take on the role of a Paediatric/first-aider in the workplace.
