Councils

Improve personal safety and service levels and maintain compliance

When you work with members of the public, aggressive and challenging behaviour can happen at any time. Do you know how to deal with these situations swiftly and manage and reduce risk?

Whether you work within a large team or alone on a front desk, our range of council training courses are designed to help you handle difficult and unexpected conflict situations.

We’ve been providing local authority conflict management training, and other associated courses, since 1996. Our clients include Kirklees Council, Hartlepool Council, Durham Council and Chesterfield Council.

Our courses are for you if:

  • You manage a council or local authority service of any kind
  • You’re looking for effective conflict resolution training for your staff to improve personal safety, reduce risk and improve service levels
  • You want your staff who come into direct contact with the public, in person or over the telephone, to have the knowledge and confidence to communicate effectively and defuse challenging behaviour, keeping themselves and your clients safe
  • You need to commission role-specific safety training
  • You want to minimise the need for physical intervention
  • You want conflict management and personal safety training for teams, as well as lone worker training
