Teachers and support staff in today’s schools face a lot of aggression from their students.
These situations can be very difficult to deal with, especially if the student is particularly aggressive or threatens to cause serious harm to the school, themselves, or others. To mitigate these risks, all schools are required to give teachers and support staff training in positive handling to better help them understand the use of force in schools.
Positive Handling is a very serious subject. Knowing when and how to act in a difficult situation can be the difference between a positive outcome and a potentially career ending prosecution. This course will start by looking at some examples and statistics which highlight the seriousness and extent of aggressive pupil behaviour, it will then go on to explain how you can identify the stages of aggression and provide some tips on how you could de-escalate a pupil before they lash out.
It also looks at where the law stands on this subject and finally best practice in theory if you ever do need to restrain a pupil.
