Witch Wood Project in Ashton under Lyne

In 2004 LDC were invited to participate in a project to reduce incidents in Ashton town centre. A case intervention group was established to deal with anti-social behaviour.

LDC’s role was to train door staff and bar staff, teaching them awareness, what do look for and how best to deal with situations at an early stage. The project involved door staff, licensees, bar managers, bar supervisors, bar staff and glass collectors. These are the people most affected by such situations

Peak Close Protection manage the Ashton town centre CCTV system on behalf of Tameside Local Authority. LDC have trained PCP staff in door security techniques to help develop their awareness of potentially anit-social situations.

The Witch Wood project was a huge success. Statistics from Tameside Local Authority show that in Ashton town centre during the Dec 04 / Jan 05 festive period :-

  • Serious incidents were reduced by 25%.
  • Non-serious incidents were reduced by 20%.

University security staff training

Universities have put forward large numbers of security staff for training and licensing. We have recently worked with Aberystwyth, Worcester, Huddersfield, Bradford and York universities.

NHS security training

ISS Mediclean is a major provider of security services for many NHS sites. We now roll out a full security operations training programme for this client.

Door supervision training nationwide

We have trained over 3,000 door supervisors across the UK. We have delivered the training programmes in Swansea, London, Cambridge, Peterborough, Stoke, Nottingham, Bangor, Chester, St Helens, Newcastle upon Tyne, Hull and Liverpool.

Conflict Management training

The issue of conflict management is receiving increasing attention in many spheres of activity. We now offer conflict management training and are in discussion with a number of public service bodies including NHS, DHSS and teachers bodies.

Training and Presenting award

We are presently in the process of developing a Training and Presenting Level 3 B Tech award.

We hope to have details available in Q4 2005. If you would like to receive details when they are available please e-mail us via the contact page.

Door trainer award, 02/11/2005

Now a door staff trainer, former Salford pub licensee Molly Prince has just won a North West Training Award.

The mother-of-four has set up her own training company which has already delivered courses to more than 3,000 pub and club door supervisors.

Having decided on a change of career, which would give her a better work life balance instead of the 90-hour week in the pub, Molly set out to get some teaching and training qualifications. She enrolled on a City & Guilds Teaching course, studying in what little spare time she had, and at Huddersfield University studied CIPD Training Practice, where she gained a merit and graduated in November 2003.

Door gap

On graduation Molly saw a gap in the market for trainers qualified to deliver a new course for door supervisors, to meet SIA licence needs, and attended trainer training in conflict management. With on-going support from Salford University, Molly was able to establish her new training business, The Leadership Development Centre.

The company is now accredited by two awarding bodies. Her company has recently added Edexcel’s Btec Level 3 Conflict Management Trainer and Advanced Training Qualifications to the portfolio of qualifications offered.

What they say

Molly said: "I have developed a host of new skills and attitudes that are allowing me to see and develop each opportunity I meet to its fullest potential. We are still on a learning journey, as each day presents new opportunities and challenges."

The National Training Awards regional ceremony for the North West took place at St George’s Hall, Liverpool. The winners of North West Training Awards and National Training Awards were selected for their achievements in workplace training and personal development.

The awards were presented by Gordon Burns, presenter of BBC North West Tonight. He said: "The training I have undertaken throughout my career has given me both the skills and confidence to succeed. I firmly believe that no matter what your age you should never stop learning and developing your skills. I am truly proud to be celebrating the achievements of so many organisations and individuals from the North West here tonight and wish them all the best for the future."

Now in their 19th year the National Training Awards are recognised across the country with 220 entrants taking part in the final stages.

John Korzeniewski, Executive Director at the Learning and Skills Council Greater Manchester adds: "This has been a superb year for the Greater Manchester area with five National Training Award winners and a further four taking North West Training Awards. I congratulate them on their success and outstanding achievements in training and development."
