Positive Handling Online Training

A component of our programme which saves your school time and resources.

Gerard O’Dea, Director of Training at Dynamis, gives a brief tour of the very popular Positive Handling Online Training offered through the Dynamis training programme.

 

Comments from our learners about the Positive Handling Online Training from Dynamis”

It was good to do the online questions and learning before the course as it meant that aspects could be referred to rather than spend time going through. It also meant you got thinking about what you wanted from the course. The techniques were put across in an excellent way, and the next day the staff put into practise what had been taught. We worked together as a team and felt empowered as all of us had had the same training and knew what was expected of us.”

This was a great course – pitched exactly right. Good that much of the theory was completed online.”

Higher-Level Teaching Assistant – St Neots – Positive Handling Online Training April 2016

“We appreciated the tailoring of the course to include de-escalation and talking around this as well as the physical intervention itself. It was well worth doing the online training element ahead of time as it was really valuable having as much time as we did to work practically. Gerard answered our questions fully and talked specifically about some of the children we have particular concerns about (eg very young children in nursery). Thank you”

Being small, I particularly enjoyed being taught techniques that do not rely on strength or physical size. The training was largely hands-on (apart from the online training of course) and that helped me internalise the techniques.”

SENCo for Middle and Upper School – Hampshire – Positive Handling Online Training April 2016

Support and advice given to practices used in Early years settings brilliant. Safety highlighted to protect ourselves and our subjects in various scenarios online course material supported and knowledge recapped in class with visual notes and explained”

Early Years Practitioner – North London – Positive Handling Online Training July 2016

I have had positive handling training previously with different providers. I particularly liked the fact that the “theory” was on-line and I did this the day before the face-to-face training. It meant I had had time to reflect on my knowledge and the session did not feel like there was too much information in one go. Very good trainer.”
