Positive Handling Law Issues during training – it is not all physical.
“I was pleased that it wasn’t all physical and loved the fact that we were taught a lot about the law and when and how to protect ourselves with it. I have already managed to put some things and suggestion into place at my current work place due to it and hopefully we can all benefit. Brilliant course and I think all teachers and TA’s should do it.”
