The Care Certificate is a requirement for all staff beginning their career in the care sector, ideally it should be completed before starting work and must be completed within twelve weeks from the commencement of employment.  This course is also suitable for existing staff to refresh or improve their knowledge.

The online course is available with a practical module locally to rehearse practical skills where required. We can also integrate classroom based and online qualifications to expand on knowledge and build training packages.  Where required, we offer many regulated qualifications to support your training in the care sector and these can be integrated with your care certificate training package.

Care Certificate Recommendations

Health Education England, Skills for Care, and Skills for Health, made a number of recommendations which were agreed by the Department of Health Governance Assurance Board:

  • The 15 standards should remain, subject to some amendments
  • Individuals will need to complete all 15 standards to be awarded the Care Certificate
  • The Certificate should be prioritised by employers for “new staff, new to care”
  • 12 weeks will remain as the guidance timeframe for a full-time individual to complete the Care Certificate
  • The minimum level for quality assurance of the Care Certificate, and the certification itself, will be the responsibility of employers
  • In addition to events and workshops, a suite of materials will be made freely available for employers to download and use to support them in implementing the Care Certificate.

The Care Certificate replaces both the Common Induction Standards and the National Minimum Training Standards.

TQUK Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid Ofsted recommended (QCF)

TQUK Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid Ofsted recommended (QCF)

This accredited qualification provides theoretical and practical training in First Aid techniques that are specific to infants aged 0 to 1, and children aged from 1 year old to the onset of puberty.   Learners will become familiar with the role of the paediatric first aider and be able to assess and react appropriately to an emergency situation, such as a child or an infant who is unresponsive, has an airway obstruction or is suffering from shock.:

Topics also included are wounds, fractures, dislocations, injuries to the head, neck, back, eyes, ears or nose, poisoning, bites or stings and electric shock.

This qualification consists of two units and is provided over a period of 2 days with a minimum contact time of 6 hours per unit.

The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage is a document published by The Department for Children, Schools and Families and applies to Early Years childcare within England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Statutory Framework states that ‘at least one person who has a current paediatric first aid certificate must be on the premises at all times when children are present. There must be at least one person on outings who has a current paediatric first aid certificate.’ The TQUK Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (QCF) is recognised as a qualification that fulfils this need.

To comply with current requirements in the childcare sector, you must take this qualification again after three years.  This must be taken as the two days again, there is no shorter course if you have taken the course before.

All successful students will be issued with a Paediatric First Aid Certificate, along with a wallet-sized plastic card detailing their achievement. The childcare sector dictate, that to be valid when working in the childcare sector, learners must retake the Paediatric First Aid qualification before the expiry of 3 years from the date that the original qualification was achieved.

This course gives learners the opportunity to gain a formally recognised regulated qualification. If you require funding, a regulated qualification is often required. Phone us and we can advise if needed. If you choose our course leading to a regulated qualification, there are additional assessment criteria to be undertaken with an instructor and a small extra certification charge.
