Does anyone know whether you have to have someone with a first aid at work qualification held by someone in the setting as well as paediatric first aid???

Isn't that just typical.......... I [very] recently went on L3 H+S and they said 25+ !!!!

 

....... I dream of a world where everyone says the same/correct thing..

and yes- that 3 day health and safety course was 3 loooooooong days that I will never get back! :(:( :wacko:

It is statutory to have a first aider in every session, but I was never asked for First Aid at Work, the Paediatric one was sufficient.

 

Just as well the cost of having someone in all the time who had completed both would have been prohibitive.

Sorry, I had misread the question. Many years ago (and I do mean many, prior to Ofsted) we had two staff do a 6 or 10 week (not sure how many weeks then) first aid course to find out at the end of it, didn't cover paediatrics and wasn't accepted by Social Services!!
