Lockdown Procedure in Schools

Our CPD approved Lockdown Procedure in Schools Course is aimed at teachers, school administrators and support staff. It gives 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.

Course information

In the last decade the threats to our society have multiplied and evolved in many ways.

Terrorist organisations have transferred their fight from Iraq and Afghanistan to our back garden, Europe – and we have seen the damage that a small number of determined individuals can do.

This Lockdown Procedure in Schools course will start by introducing the role of the lockdown officer, then discuss some of the likely reasons for a lockdown. It will go over some of the steps you can take to prepare your school for lockdown, as well as what to do in the event of a lockdown taking place.

Being prepared and knowing how to handle an emergency situation can be invaluable as it means that proactive positive action can be taken to protect yourself and others in your care.

Our Online training is flexible, efficient and cost effective meaning you can progress through the modules at your own pace and in your own time, so you can fit the training in around your work and personal life.

I decided to take the Introducing GDPR course with eduzuu and I'm very glad I did. The learning was also very solutions based and explained what to do in various scenarios. I will be going back to eduzuu for future training.
