This Is What You Should Be Looking For - And I'm Not Trying To Sell You Anything!

Positive Handling Training - NFPS Approved Training Providers

On this page are a list of training providers all of who are qualified with a BTEC Level 3 Award in Physical Restraint Instruction (for full disengagement/breakaway and positive handling training) and a BTEC Level 3 Award in Self-Defence Instruction (for disengagement/breakaway training only). 

That means that everyone on this page has gone through a structured process of learning and development and holds the appropriate qualification for teaching physical restraint, also known in schools as positive handling or care and control.

They Can Deliver BTEC Level 2 Qualifications Which Is Good For Compliance

This means that all of these providers can also deliver a range of BTEC Level 2 Awards ensuring that your staff are trained to a recognised standard of learning and development regulated by Ofqual with BTEC Certification, which is good for your school in terms of compliance and best practice. 

Mapped Over To The Required Statutory, Regulatory and Best Practice Guidance Standards

All of the providers listed here have also specialised in delivering training in schools so their training is also mapped over to the Statutory standards as contained in the Education & Inspections Act 2006, The Department for Education Guidance on the Use of Reasonable Force in Schools and the Restraint Reduction Network Standards as best practice (where legally correct to do so).
