The Trust has chosen MAPA (Management of Actual or Potential Aggression) as the preferred method for dealing with physical interventions in our Academies. This training builds confidence and competence in preventing or reducing risks through interventions for both students and staff.
All academies should have at least two members of trained staff to physically intervene as a last resort and where necessary.
MAPA Values and Philosophy
The course content will cover both theoretical and practical elements. Therefore comfortable casual dress and not business dress should be worn on the day. Lunch will be provided.
Please note that everyone who completes MAPA Training needs a refresher course every 12 months.
The dates for your refresher courses are below. Please save these dates in your diary!
