Millie’s Mark: The ‘Gold Standard’ in Paediatric First Aid

Millie’s Mark is a new standard to be displayed by nurseries who have achieved gold-standard provision. The certificate will help to give parents assurance that their child is being cared for by safe and knowledgeable staff. The new proposals will mean newly qualified staff with a childcare level 2 and 3 qualification must have an emergency paediatric first aid or full paediatric first aid certificate – a life-saving change that will add approximately 15,000 additional trained early years professionals to our nurseries and pre-schools each and every year.

*New Course* Students First Aid

Our new students first aid course teaches first aid to students at schools or clubs, for both children and teenagers over the age of 8 as part of a class. This means students will be able to gain practical experience practicing first aid techniques as they are in a smaller group, unlike our First Aid and Fire Safety Presentations in Assembly where students have an overview of first aid presented to them as part of a large group.
