Positive Handling Information Briefing for Teaching Staff (3hr)

Summary

This session offers comprehensive and bespoke awareness training for teaching staff who may not be directly involved in physical intervention but need to have an awareness of their rights and responsibilities.

Who should take this course?

Teachers or other adults working within a school environment.

The course will develop confidence to appropriately manage behaviour in the classroom and wider educational setting with the full assurance and support from the Governors and Senior Management Team.

This session can be used as a precursor in deciding if staff wish to undertake the full Positive Handling training course as part of their Continual Professional Development (CPD).

Duration and delivery

The course requires a 3hr hour input. Staff do not practise positive handling techniques themselves, but will have a practical demonstration and be shown specific techniques which may be used by trained colleagues.

Content

By the end of the session staff will:

  • Have an understanding of the legislation in relation to the use of force and physical intervention and be able to identify the key pieces of legislation relating to this subject.
  • Be able to explain their own rights, and the rights of others, relating to the use of force.
  • Be able to explain their duty of care, rights and responsibilities when calling for backup to ensure the safety of all concerned in the potential for physical intervention.
  • Have improved confidence and knowledge to be able to deal with difficult and challenging behaviour in a positive and more confident way.

At the end of the session we have built in 30 minutes as Q&A so there is time built in to deal with any possible worries or concerns staff may have about their own legal rights and responsibilities in relation to the use of force in their teaching environment.   It may be useful therefore to ensure a member of the SMT team and Safeguarding Lead is in attendance to record any concerns which can then be discussed and actioned after the session.

Further Learning

Practical techniques for positive handling are covered in Part 2 of the Positive Handling course.

Certification

A CPD Certificate of Attendance will be provided to all staff who complete the course.

Protect and Prevent

Schools have ethical and professional obligations to protect young people from harm and to prevent them becoming radicalised or involved with terrorism. These obligations are recognised in Ofsted inspection guidelines. With years of relevant expertise IBA UK is at the forefront of providers enabling schools to meet these crucial duties.
