Been trying to sort out my first aid course and had a letter from local early years team to say that they are no longer funding the course - you have to pay and then claim back, but you might not get it all refunded :angry:

However I'm chuffed as when I dropped LO off at school I spoke to our local nursery manager and she told me that the local college in another town (which is closer than my authority city) is offering the 12 hours Ofsetd required paed first aid course for free.

I rang this morning, they're sending me an application form to fill in and they'll put me on thier next course.. yipee!

Well done! :)

It's also worth contacting your local Sure Start Centre to see if they are putting on any courses for staff, they will often let childminders join in as it is in their remit to support childminders.
