Do nannies and au pairs need first aid training?

Yes, the Ofsted first aid requirements for Nannies and Au Pairs depend on whether registration is required. If you choose to register, in most cases people working with children including Nannies, Au Pairs, Childminders, Nursery Workers and Childcare Workers need the 2 days 12-hour course to meet the requirements. If you are looking at also entering other childcare sectors, then the full 2 days or our blended paediatric course would be best.

Regulations for the Childcare Register require the childminder or home child care to have an appropriate first aid qualification. However, it is for the provider to determine whether these minimum standards are appropriate for the type of care they provide and whether more advanced training or qualification is required.

This one day or online/blended course is for Nannies and Au Pairs who do not need to register. This 6 contact hour course can be taken as a classroom course or blended using ProNanny.co.uk and is also ideal as an annual refresher for any paediatric first aid course.

Common Questions

Why do I need accredited training courses?

Whether you are employed, running a business or taking training for other reasons, you need to ensure the course is trustworthy and will pass due diligence checks.  Taking courses that are accredited gives you peace of mind of the quality, compliance and that your certificate will be accepted.

What is CPD and why is having Certified CPD important?

CPD stands for Continuous Professional Development and is required in many business sectors. Even if you do not require a set CPD credit level, having Certifed CPD ensures the quality of training. ProTrainings are the highest gold standard of CPD ensuring that all courses are externally verified and mapped to the highest levels.

What is "SCORM ready" and will courses run on a LMS?

SCORM courses run seamlessly on your existing LMS system without a separate login so staff only login using the existing company system. ProTrainings online courses have an advanced SCORM ready system to give more features than any other company.

Yes, you can with ProTrainings complete half of your course using video online training and then complete day two locally at your workplace or in one of our nationwide centres.
