Impact assessment

Paediatric first aid (PFA) in early years provision

An assessment of the benefits and costs of increasing the number of staff trained in PFA on early years providers.



Following a consultation this impact assessment confirms proposals for:

  • all newly qualified staff with level 2 or level 3 childcare qualifications to have full or emergency PFA training
  • a voluntary ‘quality mark’ scheme

We published a draft of the impact assessment during the consultation process.
