What First Aid Training should a Nanny have?

The most commonly recommended first aid training courses for nannies include:

Paediatric First Aid: This course specifically focuses on first aid techniques for infants and children. It covers topics such as CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation), choking, dealing with burns, cuts, fractures, and other common childhood emergencies. Aid Training’s 6 hour Emergency Paediatric course fulfills this requirement and is suitable for those registering on the voluntary part of the Ofsted Childcare Register.

First Aid for Mental Health: Some nannies may also benefit from training in mental health first aid, which equips individuals with the skills to provide initial support to someone experiencing mental health problems. Aid Training offer a schedule of virtual training courses in this area.
