What we’ve been up to

Training professionals

We are off to an exciting start this term and are looking forward to training staff who are new to Protective Behaviours on Level 1 courses. We are delivering three Level 2 courses including two DSPL areas for staff keen to progress their PBs knowledge skills, and practice!

New Level 1 course dates have just been confirmed on 19 & 26 November as the October course is now fully booked.

Please see ‘What’s coming up’ for course dates and booking forms.

Can you help please?

We are looking for a venue for a Level 2 course in the spring term on either of these dates:

· 26 – 28 Feb or

· 4 – 6 March

If you have or know of a venue that can accommodate up to 16 delegates and 2 trainers we’d love to hear from you. We want to keep costs as low as possible and could offer a complimentary place on the course.

Inset and Team training

We also provide inset and team training courses, a fantastic way to build a whole school/organisational approach to PBs practice. If you would like to find out how to commission a training course please email fiona@familiesfeelingsafe.co.uk
