We are delivering face to face training and will work with you to mitigate risks associated with Covid 19, however our courses are now available online as well as via Zoom/Teams giving you greater options and flexibility to keep you and your staff fully trained and compliant and able to confidently carry out their duties. 


Other options include reducing face to face class sizes or having back to back sessions with smaller groups, either working at the same time in different rooms with multiple trainers or, scheduled for consecutive sessions throughout the training day is a healthy way to mitigate the risks. Having the least amount of contact between trainers and delegates by utilising our instructional clips on a screen and having staff work together in their usual “bubbles” or groups of 3, which forms the basis of our risk assessed framework for training delivery. 


Further mitigation during face to face training may be used where appropriate such as testing and recording core temperatures on arrival (you may already have this in place) through the wearing of PPE and clips of the techniques being demonstrated sent to each delegate's phone or device for them to work from in groups.


The training we provide is essential and required by you to fulfil your legal safeguarding duties and with plenty of options for delivery available there is something to suit every one. 

If you wish to discuss this in more detail please get in touch.


Throughout this period, all those who currently have training booked with us or have previously trained with us are able to take advantage of our free consultancy and advice service for any safeguarding or training issues and questions you have.  You can do this by emailing or by calling 03300 235636. 


Our online courses may be booked by emailing or calling us or via our shop.

Restraint Reduction Legal Briefing on the Use for Force with Children, Young People and Vulnerable Adults (Positive Handling Theory Session) - Duration approximately 2 hours

Delegates are enrolled onto our online course after which they will receive and email containing their login details and a link to the course. Delegates are able to complete the training on their own and at a time to suit them, so you no longer have to book at date or time and get staff together. Delegates can log in and out and their progress will be saved for when they return.


This session consists of 9 lessons and each lesson consists of a video followed by an assessment of multiple-choice questions. Delegates must achieve at least 80% on each assessment to pass and be able to move onto the next lesson.  Each assessment can be taken as many times as required until the pass rate is achieved.  Upon completion a certificate will be emailed to each delegate. 


Delegates are able to leave their feedback and ask any questions at the end of the course.

Physical Intervention Skills – (Safer Holding, Handling, Essential Physical Intervention & Disengagement Skills) 

This essential follow up to the first theoretical session equips participants with the necessary physical skills to intervene where it is deemed necessary to prevent harm.  A copy of the Physical Intervention manual is included in this course for delegates to download.  You will see videos demonstrating a set of easy to recall, properly medically risk assessed, bespoke physical skills, enabling staff to consider the holding, handling and escorting of their individual specific needs relevant to their workplace and service users. Working in a group of 3 with one person acting as the subject, delegates follow the video tutorials and record themselves demonstrating each one and then upload them in the training portal where specified, to be assessed by ourselves. A full assessment report will be provided to each delegate and once passed they will receive their certificate.

Soft Restraint Kit and SEELS - You are now able to complete the Theory session of this course online, which means we will only need to deliver the physical session of the course in person. During lockdown we are utilising video to train and refresh new and existing clients in the physical aspects of the course so please get in touch to discuss how this can be achieved for you.


Livelink & bespoke consultancy - Doug is able to provide live tutorials, such as for our Positive Behaviour Support course, assess methods or even host discussions to groups via Zoom or other video media.


I hope this helps to give you and your staff the assurances that we are here to help you facilitate your consultancy and training needs during these unprecedented times.

We would be happy to discuss how we can assist you.
