Forest School First Aid with Paediatric Training

/live/courses/Forest School Tree.jpg

This is enjoyable and highly practical two day first aid course is a must for all Level 3 Practitioners and those supporting Level 3 Practitioners.

No previous first aid experience is required to attend this course.

As a Forest School practitioner, as well as the children you would also have a number of adult helpers and staff that you are responsible for, as such the course is about treating both adults and children.  As many practitioners also work in an Early Years setting we also cover infants to allow us to award a Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (RQF) certificate in addition to the 16hr ITC Forest School First Aid certificate.

Booking a Course

Open Course Programme


We have a programme of public Forest School First Aid courses with Paediatric training in London for individuals to attend.

Dates, locations and cost of these courses are on our course calendar.  View public first aid course dates >> /live/courses/Calendar - small.jpg

 

To gain the outdoor elements of first aid training that you need as a Forest School practitioner it is also possible to attend a standard Outdoor First Aid course, the context and rationale of the course isn't as relevant and the made-to-measure Forest School First Aid course but it does meet the necessary requirements of Forest School.

We would only recommend this option if you already hold a Paediatric First Aid certificate and if you can't attend one of our open Forest School First Aid with Paediatric training courses.

In-house Training

We can run in-house training at your venue for groups of up to 12 learners per instructor.  You need a room large enough to not only seat everyone but also to allow them to lie on the floor and be rolled around without bumping into furniture or each other and access to outdoor space.

If your group already hold Paediatric First Aid certificates and you only require the 16hr ITC Forest School First Aid certificate we can run this course without the additional Paediatric Training that is included as standard on our open courses which does reduce the cost slightly.

If you have just 2 or 3 staff members to train in Forest School and Paediatric first aid then why not contact us about hosting an open course? If we can find suitable dates and you are happy to have external attendees at your venue we can often join forces to host a course that is convenient for your staff. We need a lead time of 2-3 months to advertise the remaining places and appreciate any help in advertising the course to toher local schools and Forest School groups.
