Changes to the Level 2 Award in Paediatric First Aid

Important announcement for all centres approved to offer the: IQ Level 2 Award in Paediatric First Aid - 600/8676/2 (QCF)

 

As you may be aware, the current Level 2 Award in Paediatric First Aid is under review. As a result of this, IQ will be replacing this qualification with the new qualification IQ Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (QCF) which will be available from September 2014.

 

In order to facilitate this transition, we are going to expire the IQ Level 2 Award in Paediatric First Aid (QCF). Therefore:

 

  • the last date for registrations for the IQ Level 2 Award In Paediatric First Aid (QCF)  will be 31/08/2014
  • the last date for certifications will be 31/08/2015
  • if your centre is already approved to offer the IQ Level 2 Award In Paediatric First Aid (QCF), you will automatically be approved to offer the new qualification, however centres will not be entitled to direct claim status.
  • Unapproved centres have until 1st August 2014 to become approved for the current Level 2 Award. After this date, centres should only be seeking approval for the Level 3 Award.

 

The QAN number for the new qualification will be available by August 2014.

 

The specification for the new qualification will be available by August on the ‘Upcoming Qualifications’ section of the IQ website.
