Breakaway Training - New dates! Please contact Conrad Maramba or Lucy Macfarlane in the Learning and Development Office

The Breakaway training is designed for ‘at risk’ staff groups to safely remove themselves from potential harm. It provides delegates with simple but effective skills and legal knowledge to safely disengage from a range of situations.

 

By the end of the session, the delegates will have explored:

  • Legislation, policy and procedures
  • How to safely remove yourself from physical contact whilst using communication skills to defuse the situation

The course will cover:

  • Policy and use of force legislation (including Common Law and Section 3 Criminal Law Act)
  • What effective distance, positioning, stance and non-verbal postures are
  • How to move safely with simple balance displacement skills
  • Effective breakaway and release skills and medical implications of techniques
