#PositivePrevention 


Did you know that in the UK a knife incident occurs every 25 minutes and that 4 in 5 offenders are aged between 12 to 20 years, whilst a third of victims are aged between 10 and 17 years?  


A recent MORI Survey for the Youth Justice Board found that 29% of Secondary school children, along with 57% of those excluded, admitted to routinely carrying knives.


 

In support of our schools and academies, Tradewind Recruitment has sealed an exclusive partnership with Excel Training Solutions, an industry recognised organisation which has studied the advice laid out by the Department of Education and taken it to a higher level in order to help schools train their teaching staff on mitigating knife crime, search techniques and dealing with confiscations correctly. 


An Ofsted report dedicated to Safeguarding Children and Young People in Education from Knife Crime was launched in March this year, setting out lessons learned from London.  In this they report that ‘Knife crime is just one issue among many faced by children that leaders in schools have to understand and manage on a daily basis.  As one designated safeguarding leader put it: “If you asked a teacher who was in charge of knives, they wouldn’t know:  I’m the drug woman, the knife woman and the sex woman.”  It is therefore important to remember that knife crime does not exist in a vacuum and children who are victims or perpetrators may also be experiencing multiple vulnerabilities.


DfE inspired course


The ‘Mitigation of Risk, Knives in Schools Through Search’ course is already active in the private educational sector and can be delivered onsite in your school in a 4 hour time-frame, for up to 12 delegates and up to 2 observers (consider Governors and PTA).  


Participants will receive a certificate of attendance and awarded 4 CPD points.


The cost for the requisite training comes in at £995 +VAT, equating to only £83 net per delegate.
