Online Administration of Medicines to Children – MED01/04
Our online administration of medicines to children course is particularly suited for staff that are working in the childcare, education and early years’ sectors and similar environments in which staff may need to administer medicine. If staff are required to administer medicine to children or need to assist children to take their own medication then this course is ideally suited to their organisation.
This online 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.
“I just wanted to say a big ‘Thank you’ for my training. I had an incident last night with my son, he was struggling to breathe due to aggressively being sick. If it wasn’t for the skills Matt taught me, I wouldn’t have known what to do! He was rushed to the children’s hospital by ambulance, and is OK now and in safe hands, but it just made me think I only went on the course a few weeks before so I’m glad it helped me. I had him in the perfect position where he wasn’t choking on his own sick and I would have never known that if you hadn’t taught me so a very big Thank you!!”
Why do our customers choose us?
The number of children attending education settings with a variety of medicinal needs has increased over the years - leading to increased importance in arranging for training for staff. We understand that medication training does not only need to cater for the children that require medical assistance - this training also needs to take into consideration not only the needs of the child but also those of the staff team and others such as the LEA, OFSTED and Healthcare Professionals.
Although this course is delivered in an online capacity - we achieve the great levels of interaction that delegates expect during our training courses that are delivered in our premises or off-site. The different teaching methodologies employed, together with our knowledge and experience, and the opportunity for delegates to interact with each other / the trainer ensures that our online training is highly interactive and informative.
Our courses are delivered by Registered Nurses who hold adult teaching qualifications, supported by a professional qualification and considerable, hands-on practical experience which is reflected in our grounded, pragmatic approach.
We teach over 18,000 delegates a year offering training to individuals, groups and entire teams of staff. We are committed to providing excellent training delivered in a relaxed yet highly informative style.
How do we approach medication training?

Our ‘administration of medicines to children’ course is just one of over 60 courses we offer. Acorn Health & Safety also provides training and consultancy in fire safety, food safety, manual handling, healthcare training and health and safety.
Our ‘in-house’ course programmes are the most cost-effective option if you have a number of staff that require training, and in many cases can be adapted to include a reference to local policy, practice and documentation. These courses can be delivered either at any suitable venue or you can hire our purpose-built training centre located in Warmley, Bristol, whichever is best suited to your needs.
We also run a rolling programme of ‘open courses’ which are particularly suited for individuals, organisations that only have a few delegates or those looking to release small groups of staff at a time.
Please contact us to discuss all of your training needs so we can advise the most suitable and cost-effective solution.
