Certificate in Physical Intervention and Restraint
This physical intervention and restraint training course will provide you with the knowledge and skills to identify the appropriate thresholds for the application of physical force, as well as how exactly to apply this force.
School staff have a lawful power to use force to prevent immediate danger to a person or to manage a pupil’s behaviour if required. Understanding the guidance and legislation related to physical restraint, as well as how to appropriately use this, is a vitally important skill to any teacher or member of school staff. It is especially important when dealing with the youngest learners in our setting – those in Early Years – to ensure that they are appropriately safeguarded and their physical wellbeing is supported.
Developed by Kim Martin, early years inspector and trainer, this physical intervention and restraint training course for schools will provide you with the knowledge and skills to identify the appropriate thresholds for the application of physical force, as well as how exactly to apply this force.
Please note: This training course consists of learning through video, task completion and further reading/research. Please consider this when planning and allocating your time. To successfully understand and achieve the objectives of the course, learners are expected to engage in all aspects of the learning process to ensure they can successfully apply the knowledge and skills they have gained in their own setting.
