Paediatric First Aid - DfE Clarification
Thank you for your email of 18 July, about the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
Individual local authorities (LAs) have to decide how they approve paediatric first aid training providers, and how many they have within their areas. The training given must, of course, meet the needs of childcare practitioners and the children they care for.
However, if a particular training course provider has already been approved by another English LA, then that would be sufficient because the EYFS does not require that approval has to be from a specific LA.
You may be interested to know that on 16 July the government launched, alongside a report called ‘More affordable childcare’, a consultation seeking views on reforming the regulatory system for childcare providers. The government proposes to streamline registration processes and simplify requirements, with a single set of essential measures to ensure children’s safety.
Annex A of the consultation sets out the specific changes that the government is proposing to make to the safeguarding and welfare requirements including the proposal originally made in 'More Great Childcare' launched by the government on 29 January.
This included removing 'constraints on childcare training, for example the obligation to only use LA approved first aid training'. Annex A additionally proposes to replace the need for LA approval with an ‘outline of specified course content’ for paediatric first aid training.
I hope this information is helpful to you.
