The course aims to show you how to safely use physical interventions and reasonable force if required in order to keep the child or young person safe.

Intended Outcomes

Delegates will have the opportunity to learn how to:

  • Understand the legal obligations and constraint depending on location
  • Make decisions based on a clear understanding of what their duty of care requires of them in critical situations;
  • Use a common framework to describe the phases, intensity and risk level of behaviour they are dealing with;
  • Apply a range of different verbal and non-verbal tactics which are non-physical, to reduce the risk of escalation or to defuse situations which are escalating;
  • Describe the legal principles which underline their right to use physical force in different scenarios and to know when it is appropriate to (and when it is inappropriate to) use physical force with reference to local statute/legal principles;
  • Understand the legal obligations and constraint depending on location
  • Recognise situations of high-risk and to avoid introducing actions into a scenario which would heighten the risk of serious injury or death during an incident;
  • Apply the principles of safe intervention with children in a school environment to a number of key scenarios, which often occur;
  • Effectively record the salient facts and rationale in a structured manner after the incident to withstand examination during inspection.
