Both the Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work and the Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work have been reviewed recently.
During the review, it was decided that the Emergency First Aid at Work qualification should be re-levelled and, from October 2017, it will be a Level 3 qualification.
The content of both qualifications has changed very little, but changes have been made to the assessment criteria to ensure the focus rests on the key areas of the qualifications. Additional guidance has been added to the structure of both qualifications to ensure that learners and training providers have a clear understanding of all aspects of the qualifications.
The new Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work and Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work qualifications will be launched on the 1st October 2017.
