POSITIVE HANDLING TRAINING

We help schools who are dealing with challenging behaviours to effectively and appropriately manage disruptive, risky or extreme situations using appropriate Positive Handling strategies.

Our Positive Handling training reduces injury risk, improves inspection compliance and safeguards staff, children and your school’s reputation.  We are an Institute of Conflict Management Quality Award Centre (#2201) for the delivery of conflict and interventions training.

We achieve this using a robust Positive Handling decision-making framework based on all the relevant legislation and recent national guidance for Positive Handling, coupled with a modern, pragmatic approach to the holding and containment of children whose behaviour might harm themselves or others.

We deliver a relevant Positive Handling training course for your team at your school or service, on dates of your convenience.

Choose from a standard one-day course on an INSET day or a blended/twilight short course which leverages our online training system. We also offer training for Special Schools or those who look after children with SEND by blending communication and de-escalation tactics with the appropriate last-resort physical alternatives.

This feedback from October 2018 summarises the experiences of learners on our courses:

“Training is often VERY detailed and complex; what made the Dynamis training different – and better! – was that it was simple and clear. There wasn’t too much to remember and it was all taught and set within a framework of common sense and the practical day-to-day activities and situations that arise in a school.

The pre-course information around the legislation underpinning positive handling also gave me the confidence to know I am legally and professionally in a position to use positive handling without an excessive risk of negative repercussions.

I was able to put the training into practice immediately and, several weeks later, can still use the training without looking back at the materials. THANK YOU. “

An extremely informative, and well delivered course. Both theory and practical components covered and enough time specifically given and taken to answer questions. I felt confident and well supported to approach the practical hands on aspect of the course and again we were given plenty of time to role play and practice different handling techniques. I would highly recommend that all members of staff be given access to this training and have already said as such to my Headmaster.

“Very good to get background knowledge of law, guidance, etc. as well as practical theory.  Thank you.  After you came last year it really made my colleagues and myself think really hard.  We hardly do any restraining any more which is really good.”
