Paediatric First Aid

Paediatric First Aid Training 2021-2022

Gloucestershire Local Authority will make a funding contribution towards the cost of paediatric First Aid training for childminders and settings, not schools or home carers. On completion of an appropriate EYFS compliant training, settings may apply for payment of up to £60.00 per practitioner up to a maximum of 3 practitioners per setting per financial year (1st April-31st March).

To receive the funding contribution, childminders and practitioners should email a scanned copy of their certificate which must be from a company providing EYFS compliant training together with a receipt for payment. Email address to be used is eyservice@gloucestershire.gov.uk.

You must indicate clearly whether you are a registered childminder, childminder currently going through the registration process or which daycare setting you are from. Payment will be made by BACs (bank transfer). Cheque payments are no longer possible, therefore please complete and return the BACs form which can be found at the bottom of this page.

Childminders currently going through the registration process will be eligible to apply for reimbursement on completion of a recognised EYFS training course for childminders and upon receipt of their Oftsed or Childminder Agency Registration certificate. Please email a scanned copy of your certificate
showing completion of the course together with your First Aid certificate plus receipt and BACS form.

Please note this funding is subject to availability and there is no guarantee of future funding. Applications for funding must relate to the current financial year: 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022.
