03 Dec Discounted first aid training for early years centres
tpm has teamed up with Smart Rethink to offer high-quality first aid training for early years centres. The courses are at a discounted price for childcare settings that employ tpm apprentices.
Keeping staff and children safe is always a number one priority for any early years setting. But 2020 has brought added pressures for nurseries as it has for other businesses. For instance, just maintaining Covid-secure standards has brought a resource-draining element to operations. So we’re hoping that our offer of discounted first aid courses to the tpm network of early years centres will provide a welcome boost.
EYFS and Ofsted require at least one 12-hour fully paediatric first aid qualified member of staff in nurseries. They must be available all times including cover for sickness, holidays and trips. Ideally, this staff member should be supported by a six-hour trained member of staff. Additionally, HSE requires ‘employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work.’
The courses offered by Smart Rethink guarantee legal compliance. What’s more, the certification lasts three years.
Bespoke First Aid Training
Smart Rethink first aid courses offer professional and bespoke training. Indeed their courses are tailored especially for Early Years settings. Furthermore, they are fully flexible, with trainers able to deliver on-site at nurseries to a bespoke timetable to suit the employer. Smart Rethink, are a trusted and vetted associate of tpm with excellent feedback.

Recommended for all Early Years Settings
Carol Butler, owner of Ducklings Day Nurseries in Liverpool, has already taken advantage of the discounted offer. Her nurseries have a clear mission ‘to provide a caring place to play and learn, where each child feels, safe, happy and can reach their full potential.’ Therefore, having quality first aid training is a must for her staff. Carol is full of praise for tpm associate, Smart Rethink and their course:
‘We were impressed with the excellent training course. Smart Rethink came to our nursery and delivered a comprehensive and informative course. We chose the Paediatric First Aid Course, and it was perfect for our needs. We thoroughly recommend this course to all other childcare providers.’
