Knowing when and how to act in a difficult situation can be the difference between a positive outcome and a potential career-ending prosecution.

This course will start by looking at some examples and statistics which highlight the seriousness and extent of aggressive pupil behaviour, it will then go on to explain how you can identify the stages of aggression and provide some tips on how you could de-escalate a pupil before they lash out. It also looks at where the law stands on this subject and finally best practice in theory if you ever do need to restrain a pupil.

Our course will provide delegates with the relevant information to understand pupils’ needs and how to make the right decision in a hostile situation to provide the correct physical intervention to diffuse the situation.
