Course description

Positive Handling in Schools Certificate

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.

This course provides a comprehensive overview of how to engage in positive handling when the situation requires. It begins by talking about positive handling in general and going over the relevant legislation. It then goes into detail about the government guidelines and advice on this matter. The modules also discuss the aggression curve, giving teachers and support staff valuable information about the best time for intervention. Finally, it gives you the tools you need to make decisions about when you should physically intervene.
