For low to medium risk settings Module 2 provides personal safety strategies, non-restrictive physical skills including responsive interventions to manage big emotions and breakaway training for those who experience hazardous behaviour that poses a physical risk to staff or service user. Staff need training in personal safety, breakaway or separation techniques but should not be required to use manual restraint. (this is the maximum level for lone workers)
Restraint Training for Schools
For medium risk settings Module 3 provides training in restrictive and non-restrictive physical intervention skills including; positive handling, guiding/shepherding techniques, restraint or clinical holding. For those experience hazardous behaviours that poses physical risk to staff or service users, where non-restrictive breakaway skills may not always be adequate to manage the risk and restrictive physical skills or manual restraint may be required.
Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is a person-centred approach to supporting people with behaviours that challenge.
For medium to high risk settings, Module 4 provides advanced physical skills training to manage high risk situations where the level of risk poses a significant physical risk to staff or service users, and restrictive physical skills or manual restraint are required regularly. The level of risk posed may require the need for higher level techniques including floor or safety pod holds, seclusion, or rapid tranquillisation.
The Soft Mitts mechanical restraint course trains delegates in the use of the VIP-R soft Mitts as an alternative to traditional wrist restraints when mechanical restraint is required to prevent injury or harm in the event of challenging or hazardous behaviours.
This course for staff in schools and child care settings explores the ability to resolve conflict through interpersonal skills rather than force.
This course explores the six stages of managing aggression and challenging behaviour including physical and non-physical defence strategies and will be tailored to your workplace setting.
Restraint Training for Schools: Equipping Educators for Safe and Effective Behaviour Management
Restraint Training for Schools is designed to equip educators and school staff with the knowledge and skills needed to safely and effectively manage situations where physical restraint is necessary to protect the safety of students and staff. This training is tailored specifically to meet the needs of schools and is based on best practices in the field of restraint and behaviour management.
Participants will learn how to recognise and respond to escalating behaviour, de-escalation techniques, and how to safely apply physical restraints when necessary. The training is delivered by experienced trainers who have extensive experience working in school settings and understand the unique challenges faced by educators and staff.
The practical skills component focuses on hands-on instruction and practice. Participants will learn how to safely apply physical restraints, as well as techniques for escorting students and managing crisis situations. Restraint training is designed to be realistic and scenario-based, with participants practising the skills they learn in a controlled environment under the guidance of experienced trainers.
The training is designed to minimise the risk of injury to both students and staff during restraint situations. This includes training on proper positioning and monitoring of the restrained student, as well as strategies for managing difficult behaviours without resorting to physical restraint.
The training emphasises de-escalation techniques. Participants will learn how to recognise and respond to escalating behaviour before it reaches a crisis point. This can help to reduce the need for physical restraint and create a safer learning environment for everyone.
The training is valuable for educators and school staff who may be required to manage challenging behaviours in the classroom. The training provides practical, hands-on training and ongoing support to ensure that participants have the knowledge and skills needed to manage difficult situations safely and effectively. With a focus on safety and de-escalation, can help to create a safer learning environment for all students and staff.
