Here at Training Qualifications UK, we like to make sure you’re kept aware of all the most important goings-on in the world of End-Point Assessment. With that in mind, this week we provide information about the Early Years Educator Standard.

Paediatric First Aid Certificate – Self Verifying Tool

We are aware of the difficulties around the guidance for verifying Paediatric First Aid Certificates for the Early Years Educator Standard.

We have approached the EQA for further guidance, and are currently following the requirements of the Assessment plan.

To support you to prepare your Apprentices for the necessary Paediatric First Aid Gateway requirements, please see our PFA Self Verifying Guidance Tool.

Due to the impact COVID-19 has had on many regulated providers, we strongly advise that you use the tool and ensure that all Paediatric First Aid certificates are valid, ahead of submitting your Apprentices through Gateway.

Paediatric First Aid Guidance documents

We have also updated our Early Years Educator Gateway requirement document, and created a standalone Paediatric First Aid support document. These support documents are live on our Verve EPA Suite.

Should you have any questions in regards to these documents, please feel free to contact us at
