Paediatric Blended Learning – Students Loving It!

The newly offered Blended Learning Paediatric First Aid course is being getting rave reviews by participants!

I found the online learning an excellent option when trying to achieve a work / home life balance.  It’s easy to follow and covers a wide breath of subject areas.  I really can’t think of any suggestions to improve this blended learning course’

‘ I enjoyed the blended learning and found the online part convenient, easy to use and preferable to previous first aid courses attended’

‘ The blended learning course was really helpful.  I feel very confident in doing First Aid and in my opinion it is perfect!’

‘ This was brilliant! Really enjoyed the course and it helped me to build confidence by being hands on (practical session).

Akesis Medical Services are working with an on line provider who have developed an excellent interactive elearning module to work alongside its face to face paediatric first aid course. It is an excellent alternative to the 2 day paediatric first aid course and it is suitable for anyone who works with young children. It is a comprehensive course in two parts for professional child carers including nannies, au pairs, pre-school, nursery and reception year teachers and child minders caring for children under 8.

The course content meets Ofsted and Scottish requirements for first aid training in Early Years settings.

The Blended Paediatric First Aid Course comes in 2 parts:

Part 1 involves completing the interactive e-learning module and can be done any time before you attend the face to face training. You will be sent a link to the e-learning module when you book this course.

Part 2 is a one day face to face course where you will learn and demonstrate all the practical sections of the course

  • Role of a first aider, accident reporting and the first aid box
