- There must be at least one person on outings who has a current paediatric first aid certificate.
- First aid training must be approved by the local authority and consistent with guidance set out in the ‘Practice Guidance for the EYFS'

Shropshire Council offers a number of places on Early Years First Aid (Paediatric) courses to practitioners who have signed up to our subscription scheme.
Please note that the number of places available to subscribers as part of the subscription scheme will depend on the number of NEF-funded children at the setting. The attached First Aid Matrix is a guide to how many places you may be entitled to.
However, if you need additional places we are pleased to advise you that you are now able to book courses at a discounted price with St John Ambulance. Please see the attached flyer for more information.
If you do not access the Shropshire Council courses you can choose your own provider from the Training Providers List on this page. We cannot reimburse practitioners who access this training privately.
