Did you know that 12 young people a week lose their lives to sudden cardiac arrest according to official statistics published by the government?
Unfortunately 80% of those young people that die have had no symptoms. We would only know there was an underlying problem if the individuals had attended some form of cardiac screening.
The reality is that this screening just doesn’t happen. But the fact remains that young people are dying every single day from cardiac arrest.
The Level 2 Award in Paediatric First Aid (QCF) meets the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage as laid out in the Practical Guidance document, and helps to prepare you in dealing with the devastating sudden cardiac arrest that can occur.
This training is suitable for anyone working with children in the absence of their parents and is particularly aimed at: nursery schools; schools; child minders; nannies; and early years’ centres.
Any business or charity needing to meet Ofsted requirements should take this course.
