AISA School Safety and Security Institute
Facilitator: Mike Johnson
International schools promise to provide and maintain a safe, orderly and healthy environment; yet, each school faces unique disruptive activities (incidents or events) and varying levels of outside emergency support services.

AISA School Safety and Security Institute

Audience Security Managers

Best practice calls for international schools to commit to an individualised emergency preparedness programme that is integrated, comprehensive and unique to their situation.

Various International School Task Forces and accrediting agencies are starting to recognise that international schools “have a duty of care to protect children and prevent them from harm, and act with a sense of urgency if a child is at risk of harm.” In the near future international schools will also likely face increased accreditation standards for their “duty of care” programmes. The best way to address any new or enhanced standards and indicators will be in the context of their overall comprehensive and integrated safety, security and emergency preparedness programme.

This course will prepare participants to better address and manage a comprehensive safety, security, and emergency preparedness programme. This course is specifically designed for international school personnel with responsibility for and/or professional development interest in school duty of care programmes such as safety, security, or emergency preparedness planning. It will be of particular interest to Heads, Principals, Assistant Principals, Business Managers and Security Directors and anyone aspiring to be in an international school leadership position.
