We help Alternative provision schools and referral units with managing disruptive, distressed or dangerous behaviours and to de-escalate crisis events, by providing relevant and appropriate training based on real scenarios, which reduces risk to staff, the children and the organisation as a whole along with promoting an ethos of dignity and respect in all interactions.

You are probably dealing with increasingly Challenging Behaviour of different kinds and with different causes.  You may be doing this with fewer staff than before and more children who have needs accross a broader spectrum of behaviour, specifically with more risk of violence.  You may be seeing a changing demographic in your school with pupils who have an even greater need for confident staff who can engage with them successfully.  It may even be the case that your staff team are asking for more robust physical protective alternatives for those situations when words alone fail to create safety.

“Very informative and very professional and the language used was very careful to avoid problems when restraining someone appropriately. The way it was delivered was interesting and a lot of demonstrations etc. and opportunity to ask questions.”

Pastoral Manager, The East Manchester Academy

“Gerard made the learning accessible and was able to cater for scenarios that may occur in the environment. Gerard answered questions by quoting cases that had been in the public eye to bring home the danger of some situations “
