Online Administration of Medicines to Children in Schools – MED04L

Our administration of medicines to children course is particularly suited to staff working in the education, childcare and early years’ sectors and similar environments where they may be required to safely administer medicine or assist children to take their own medication. This course considers Level 1 and Level 2 administration.

This online training course is live-streamed using ‘Zoom‘. It’s the same great training achieving high levels of interaction and is still being delivered by a knowledgeable and experienced trainer. Where required all course materials are provided in advance of training, all you need is access to the internet and a suitable device (computer, laptop, I-pad or similar) to join in.

“Matt was a great trainer, he kept things interesting and funny but was still able to emphasise the importance of our training. I thought it was great that he often gave us examples of real life scenarios.”
