Services this programme is available to
These modules are only taught after the TNA has identified a specific child or adult whose behaviour may pose a significant risk to either them or others. The skills when taught are child or adult specific, and will have a behaviour support plan, physical intervention risk reduction plan, risk assessment, record of all those who attended the training and a commitment to complete a refresher programme within less than 12 months.
Duration (length in hours/days)
This programme is designed to be delivered over a 1 and half day period. This should allow sufficient time to cover the theory and practical work requested. It should also allow participants to see positive benefits of the training in action when course participants return to their places of work after the course. This includes an onus on the Programme Director Martha McGinn to keep the content current with changes to policy, legislation and government published and BILD Codes of Practice. This responsibility also involves the design of all training slides, case studies, exercises, assessments and course manuals.
This programme has been specifically designed to meet the needs of staff working in target care settings to equip them with the skills to provide a team response to a service user when their behaviour is a risk to either themselves or others and restrictive physical intervention is the only right intervention available.
