Free Personal Safety Training Session for Women in Calderdale18th November 2014
Now that winter is nearly upon us, the Inspire Sport & Fitness Centre at Calderdale College will be hosting free personal safety training sessions from 5pm-6pm which are available to females living in the Calderdale area.
The need for training was identified by a number of young women who expressed an interest in personal safety and well-being. Oliver Johnstone, Sports Development Officer at the College has also been working closely with the community and has identified a community need for personal safety training.
Individuals will develop new skills which will increase their sense of safety and leave them with options for making informed decisions on what can be done to remove or decrease the risk of violence and crime in their lives.
Topics will include:
- Understanding self defence
- Safety at work
- Safety on the street
- Out and about on your own
- Transport i.e. buses & taxis
- Social media
- Walking home at night
The personal safety training sessions are being delivered by Sinead Armstrong who has been delivering management of aggression, violence and personal safety training for the past 13 years. Sinead has delivered training to various organisations including the NHS, Police, Social Services, schools and community groups.
Sinead Armstrong, Commercial & Partnership Development Officer and Personal Safety Trainer at the College said: “The aim of personal safety training is to equip women with the knowledge and understanding of how to recognise risk and how they can effectively deal with situations that affect their safety.”
