Millie's Law

As of this month, Government legislation has made it compulsory for all childcare Level 2 and 3 qualifications to include paediatric first aid training. All newly-qualified staff with a Level 2 or Level 3 qualification in childcare must complete an additional qualification in emergency or full paediatric first aid.

These changes have been made in response to a campaign and online petition by Joanne and Dan Thompson, the parents of tragic Millie Thompson who passed away on her third day at nursery in 2012 after a choking incident. Her parents have worked hard to ensure that newly qualified staff must have paediatric first aid training.

Nurseries who have 100% of their staff trained in paediatric first aid will be able to display a new kitemark, 'Millie's Mark', that will reassure parents that their child is safe and being cared for by knowledgeable and appropriately trained staff.

Hoople offers regular paediatric first aid training programmes. Run over two days, the next available dates are:

  • Monday 26 September/Tuesday 27 September 2016
  • Monday 27 February/Tuesday 28 February 2016

To book or for further information, please go to CPD online, email our training team or call now on 01432 383500.

Level 3 Early Years Educator programmes

As a reminder, Hoople's flexible, Level 3 Early Years programmes are available to start at any time of the year on a rolling basis. These are perfect for nurseries and pre-schools looking to develop the knowledge and skills of their staff.

Subject to entry requirements (all Level 3 participants must hold at least a GCSE grade C or above in English and mathematics), learners are not restricted to specific term dates and can start the programme at a time convenient to both of you. Just one day per month is required for off-the-job training.

For more information, please email our friendly training team or give them a call on 01432 383500.

Introducing new recall system

A new, automatic recall system has been launched as part of CPD Online. This means that you will receive reminders from CPD Online when it is time to book onto a refresher course for any qualifications which require renewal—for instance First Aid.

Visit CPD Online now for more information about our upcoming courses, or remember to call our friendly team on 01432 383500 if you have training enquiries.

Reminder: evaluation surveys

Back in June, we announced our having gained Recognised Provider status with Skills for Care. This accreditation indicates that our provision has gone through an external quality assurance process to ensure that our training is of a high quality and designed specifically for the needs of the local adult social care workforce.

Last month we announced that we had updated our evaluation process to include a learner impact and manager's evaluation survey for a number of key courses throughout the year. Our intention with these surveys is to use your feedback to improve the way we evaluate and monitor our training, and ensure that training remains specific to your needs and, where indicated, improves the quality of delivery.

If you or a member of your staff are contacted about this survey, we would really value your honest comments about the service/training you received.

Which courses will be included in the surveys?

Please look out for our managers' evaluation surveys coming up for the following courses:

  • First Aid at Work Level 3 (3 Days) (12 July course)
