Course Aims

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 course will start by introducing the role of the lockdown officer then discuss some of the likely
reasons for a lockdown, 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.
