Event description
PIPS training is aimed at all staff working in a Primary, Secondary, Special Schools & Alternative Provision settings.  It aims to support staff in developing a consistent, effective and acceptable team approach to managing behaviour, while, crucially, maintaining positive relationships and minimising risk for all. 

Comfortable clothing to be worn to support practical work during the course. 
Training objectives
To explore key issues surrounding challenging behaviour and emphasises the importance of positive, preventative, verbal and non-verbal de-escalation strategies.  This course promotes the least intrusive, most caring handling and explores a continuum of passive techniques designed to keep both pupils and staff as safe as possible based on 'making movement safe' rather than 'overpowering'.
