Trainers and centres should start delivering the updated CIEH level 3 paediatric first aid qualifications from 1 January 2015. Registrations for the level 2 paediatric first aid qualifications will cease on 31 December 2014 and trainers will have a maximum of 6 weeks from this date to complete their training programmes and submit results to the CIEH for processing.

The CIEH Level 2 Award in Paediatric First Aid has been developed to meet the first aid training requirements set out by The Practice Guidance in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) for Ofsted-regulated child-care settings. This guidance includes details of the course content and the duration of the training.

The CIEH Level 2 Award in Paediatric First Aid is primarily aimed at those working in child-care settings, but it will also be useful for anyone with a responsibility for caring for infants and children.
