Our courses for schools

Flexible blended learning

We can deliver training in sessions that fit your teacher training timetable, tailoring these to fit your available time. Our blended learning approach allows staff to complete elements of their learning prior to or after the training.

Free policy reviews included

As part of our training contract with you, we will help you review your current policies that relate to the course content. This will ensure the policies reflect current best practice and legislation, and meet the DfE and Ofsted requirements. In particular, we offer guidance on your current behaviour policy, and can help you develop policies for violence and aggression and use of force if these are not in place.

24/7 advice and support line

Our training package includes ongoing advice and guidance through emails, regular newsletters and our website.  You will also have access to a 24/7, seven day a week manned telephone advice support line.  We offer this to support schools with needs that may arise during weekend and evening activities, which may be especially relevant to boarding schools.

Our trainers

All our teaching team hold enhanced DBS checks, relevant and appropriate First Aid qualifications and insurance.

They regularly update their understanding of  specialist subject areas, monitoring OFSTED guidance and reports, DfE and government updates and guidance, Health & Safety legislation, recent court cases in relation to use of force, current trends and best practice within the education sector.

Positive handling & use of force in schools - who is it for?

These sessions are designed to benefit all school staff, including safeguarding leads and specialists, health & safety managers, security staff, caretakers, senior staff, governors, clergy and other members of the welfare and pastoral team, and special educational needs teachers.
