In recent years the threats to our society have multiplied and evolved in many ways. Being prepared and knowing how to handle an emergency situation can be invaluable as it means that proactive action can be taken to protect yourself and others in your care.
This Lockdown Procedure in Schools Course will start by introducing the role of the lockdown officer then explore some of the common reasons for a school to go into lockdown, discuss some of the key measures you can take to prepare your school for lockdown, as well as what to do in the event of an unexpected lockdown being required.
The course is aimed at nominated lockdown officers, teachers, school administrators and support staff. The course will give them an overview of what to expect and how to act in a lockdown situation and is intended to inform and prepare staff rather than alarm them.
Our online training is flexible, efficient and cost-effective. This allows our delegates can work through the modules at their own speed and in their own time, so they can fit the training in around their work and personal life.
Key topics covered include; the responsibilities of the lockdown officer, the lockdown signal and the all-clear signal, suitable locations for a lockdown, lockdown communication and managing violent intruder lockdown situations.
