Physical Intervention

Hey everyone it’s Mark Dawes from NFPSLtd here and if you’ve landed on this video is because you’re looking for
more information on physical intervention. And I can understand how
difficult that can be for you because it could be like navigating through a
minefield because there’s some physical
intervention organisational trainers out there that are really good and there’s
some that are not really good but here’s the crux of the matter if you’re looking
for physical intervention training or information then you become responsible
for the information and training that you take on board if you do not do your
due diligence properly. Now I understand this because a long time ago when I was
looking for information I had to navigate through the minefield of
organisations and agencies out there that were telling me I have to do this
and how to do that and it was like being bludgeoned to death, but that whole
landscape has now changed. Physical intervention is no longer
primarily about teaching a range of techniques within a rigid system. It’s now about finding solutions to
problems and that means that in your training in your delivery, or in your
commissioning of training, you need to have an agency or an organisational
trainer that are flexible enough to be able to understand things like risk
assessments so they can actually move things around and get things medically
reviewed and risk assessed so they meet your specific needs. That’s
a key factor nowadays you cannot have an off-the-shelf one-size-all-fits you know
fits course for everyone. Now I was actually the first person in
the UK – if not worldwide – to write Awarding Body Qualifications on physical
intervention and we have a whole stable of qualifications now for for frontline
operatives in the care sector in the education sector in the security sector and a whole range of other sectors and we also have trainer qualifications too and the
beauty of that is it allows us to evidence a structured approach of
learning and assessment towards passing someone and qualifying them to a
competent standard so we can actually evidence that, and that’s a really
another important things you to understand because you may one day be
called upon to provide evidence in a court of law or in a tribunal. The other thing about our training is, is
that we’ve had it legally reviewed and it’s all underpinned by health and
safety and risk assessments and medical reviews, and these three cornerstones are
really really important for you when you’re looking at training and that’s whether you choose to look at training with us or whether you choose to look at train
someone else make sure those conrnerstones are there. And also really important for you is
make sure that you get the support you need from the training provider you use. That’s absolutely crucial because it’s
okay doing the training course but come the day of the race when you’ve actually got to deliver training you may need more than just that training
course. So any provider like us should provide
you with with resources online resources post course access post your support and
all of the guys and girls who train with us have my phone number of my direct email so they can
contact me if they have any issues and we get back from straight away. But listen, this is only a short introductory

    Simple yet operationally functional skills with the relevent underpinning knowledge needed and then backed by vocational qualifications. Works for me, thats why I support and recommend NFPS training.

    I have been training with NFPS and indeed Mark Dawes for several years now and I can say that their intervention trainers course is the best by far, I personally now run my own training company delivering Intervention training to Schools, Care homes and to the Security Industry. So if you want to be the best, you have to train with the best.
