Training Manager Fay Gibbin at Busy Bees Training, part of the Busy Bees nursery group, currently oversees over 700 childcare, management and catering apprenticeships as well as 20 short courses delivered at each of the 12 venues throughout the country. Here, Fay offers her views on the importance of Paediatric First Aid training and how the childcare sector needs to champion an increase in qualified first aid practitioners.
Every childcare professional feels the weight of responsibility on their shoulders. After all, they have been entrusted with a parent’s most precious possession; their child. While a child is in their care, they are responsible for not only their day-to-day welfare and development, but more vitally, their safety.
