POSITIVE HANDLING TRAINING FOR YOUR SCHOOL
WE HELP SCHOOLS LIKE YOURS, 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.

“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. “
