Early Years Training

Aim: To introduce first aid to learners who have children and babies in their care and to enable them to recognise and respond to a paediatric emergency.
Aim: To identify the health and safety issues relating to those working in the child care environment.

First Response Training is an accredited training provider via Advantage Accreditation, which ensure our courses and trainers meet high-quality standards. Our team of curriculum experts have developed our Early Years courses in-line with relevant guidance and legislation, including the Early years foundation stage (EYFS) statutory framework, the Ofsted Education inspection framework (EIF), the Childcare Act 2006, Working Together to Safeguard Children, and Every Child Matters. The team regularly revisit course materials to ensure content is up-to-date according to these national standards. We work hard to ensure our training is excellent so that the care our young children receive is excellent too. Learners are often assessed at the end of their courses and their assessment results determine whether or not they will receive their certificate. Some of our courses also feature practical assessments.
