Being unprepared facilitates mayhem.

Aggression Awareness & Prevention’ is an IEP endorsed training course designed specifically for ‘front-line’ employability professionals to develop their confidence, resilience and practical skills to be able to pro-actively reduce risk, recognise warning and danger signs and implement proven strategies to successfully defuse, de-escalate and successfully resolve conflicts before they can develop into violence.

With this in mind, Future Path have developed three training programmes to help providers to succeed – each includes a version of Mental Health First Aid, and you can choose from courses aimed at frontline staff, BD teams and support staff/management.
