Training for the workplace

We at New Guard strive to demonstrate that a skilled and resilient organisation is not incompatible with a level of professional paternalism, where leaders and team members know, and understand, their duty of care and can deal with the needs of those who, for whatever reason, are unable to cope. 


We have designed an interactive training session that uses group activities, media clips and open discussion to share the course content. We tie this all together with a clear, easy to follow power point presentation. Each attendee will receive a workbook that can be used for note taking and kept for future reference along with a vulnerability Assessment Aid to assist them in the workplace, a Certificate of Attendance and a Pin Badge that indicates to those who may need help, that they are apart of the Safety Champions Community.

The Course focuses on three sections, Vulnerability Awareness, Communication Skill and Mental Health Awareness and will be delivered over six hour in one day. We can cater for a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 20 attendees on one course. 

Please see below for a break down of what is covered in each section.
