Personal safety training for schools and young people
We Make You Safer
When working with schools, we can put together a bespoke programme of training covering areas as diverse as:
- Personal safety
- Conflict management
- Leadership skills
- Motivational training
- Reading confrontational body language
- Communication skills
We provide training annually at the University of Sheffield, aimed at teenagers who are leaving school and going on to university. We talk to them about isues of personal safety they may encounter when away from home for the first time as well as covering some basic training in conflict management. You can read a testimonial about this work in the Clients section of our website.
If you are interested in booking a training programme for your school, please contact us to find out more about the packages we can offer. You may be able to get government funding to cover some or all of the training costs – please check this with your local authority.
Teenagers and young adults
Brooks Jordan also provides personal safety training to young people through local organisations such as youth clubs.
People are always surprised to hear that young males aged between 16 and 24 are statistically the most likely to be attacked or assaulted. For this reason, we recommend that parents of teenagers consider enrolling their children on a conflict management and breakaway skills training course.
We are also intending to deliver personal safety and conflict resolution training in 2012 for young offenders. This will be free of charge. Our aim is to teach them how to manage conflict or aggression without resorting to violence, helping them to stay out of trouble in future.
