What people say about this course
Thank you for contributing to our ‘Independence Day’ held at Sheffield University. Without exception your session proved to be the most popular once again.

We booked Brooks Jordan as part of a scheduled Personal Safety Day for our Year 11 students, with the aim of preparing them for the potential risks associated with the greater freedom and autonomy they begin to experience as they move into adulthood. We were looking to provide our students with some practical advice and techniques to enable them to avoid and manage possible threats to their personal safety when in the community, particularly in the evenings.
The Year 11 sessions were very successful; student feedback was positive and supervising staff supported the view that the Brooks Jordan sessions were excellent. Students were taught to understand aggressive body language and how to use their own body language to de-escalate potentially aggressive situations. Following this success, we decided to book them again to train Year 13 students, this time focusing specifically on preparing students for moving away to University. The trainers shared their knowledge of crimes commonly committed against students and gave advice on how to avoid common pitfalls. Our Sixth Formers appreciated the opportunity to discuss strategies and techniques and found the chance to practice breakaway techniques both enjoyable and empowering.
