Health and safety for schools

School specific training

Health and Safety Services provide training for schools in a variety of ways; some courses are delivered on pre-arranged dates and are accessed through a booking form system and via a training calendar, others are delivered at individual sites to staff groups or via training webinars.

The majority of training provided is delivered as part of the service level agreement offered to schools with no additional costs; schools that do not have a service level agreement can access all of the same training but these are chargeable.

This year we are providing a catalogue of courses which gives you more detail about the course content, who the target audience is and expected outcomes, we hope you find this useful.

All training will be booked directly through Health and Safety Services using a simplified booking form. You can book training through your SLA advisor or Health and Safety Services.

Training that can be delivered at individual schools includes:

  • Introduction to health and safety
  • General health and safety awareness for catering and cleaning staff
  • Fire awareness
  • Fire marshal
  • Risk assessment workshop
  • DSE assessor
  • Incident investigation
  • E-Learning 

Training webinars

We have developed a series of three training webinars for schools that hold a Health and Safety SLA with the Coventry City Council Occupational Health. These three courses, can be used by staff who are required to complete mandatory training.

The webinars provide useful health and safety information for fire safety, managing fire evacuation and controlling workplace hazards and risks. Once staff have watched the webinars they can test their knowledge with a quiz. Managers should print the quiz and retain it as evidence of completing the webinar training.  

These webinars have been provided as part of your school/academy SLA. They are protected under the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988, the principal legislation covering intellectual property rights in the United Kingdom and the work to which it applies.
