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.

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.”Primary Teacher, E17 London
