Childminders get First Aid training

What started off as a semi-formal training session for nine childminders, a few years ago, has slowly transformed into a small business that has trained over 180 women, to date. The Victoria Nanny Agency, with assistance from the Faculty of Health and Applied Sciences (FHAS), offers basic First Aid training to childminders as part of community engagement.

The first training session for the year started in February, while the next one is scheduled to take place in April.
The last training was provided by the Faculty’s third-year students.

“We help women to gain basic skills on how to save children’s lives, the importance of good hygiene practices and basic awareness about HIV/AIDS, amongst others” said Victoria Joseph, the Manager of the agency.

“The training is aimed at creating awareness of what to do in emergency situations. It takes the form of mostly
demonstrations for choking management and how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation,” Carolie Cloete, the Emergency Medical Care Programme Coordinator at FHAS elaborated. NUST offers a three-year Bachelor of Emergency Medical Care degree, designed to provide students with techniques, principles, concepts, and problem-solving techniques of emergency medical care.

The agency plans on expanding training to parents in the future, as well as various towns across the country.
