Learn how to defuse and de-escalate incidents in schools.
Learn safe techniques for physical interventions.
The aim of this course is to instruct attendees in the underpinning legal knowledge, conflict management skills, and intervention techniques necessary to enable them to be able to safely manage aggression and phsical intervention in schools.
This 1 Day course for teachers and school staff can also be delivered as shorter twilight sessions, or any other format that is suitable for you.
As you know, Head Teachers are now expected to make suitable decisions about what training to provide for their staff, but you may not know that failure to choose the correct training for your staff could leave schools open to claims of negligence and liability under Health and Safety Law.
If it is foreseeable that a teacher you employ might have to escort a pupil, break up a fight, or physically intervene in any way with a child in your care, then you could be considered legally negligent if they had not been provided with appropriate training to do so and someone claims injury or misconduct.
Get Safe Training can help you avoid and defuse incidents by providing your teachers with clear information to help them make safe decisions about physical intervention, and teaching safe techniques to use if necessary – techniques, taught by experts, that are legally audited, used internationally and proven to be extremely effective, to limit the risks to all involved, and to avoid accusations of inappropriate touching.
Get Safe Training provides flexible, low cost courses, from in-house twilight sessions to BTEC qualifications, and free training needs analysis. Our Physical Intervention in Schools courses start from only £495 for up to 16 delegates, and can be delivered as short after-school sessions.
Some schools try to avoid training their staff properly with well intentioned ‘no contact’ or ‘minimum force’ policies – these often infringe employee’s rights and could increase your liability rather than reduce it. Teachers can and will physically intervene if they feel they need to.
