RAID PRICIPLES




We produce the best training we can
 
Just that.

We are easy to work with, reliable and generous
 
For example: we don't 'hold you to things' - if your needs change then so do ours. We never want you to have training that you don't want. We always do what we say we'll do, when we say we'll do it. If course delegates ask things over and above the topic of the course, the tutor will answer if they can.

Respect
 
Across-the-board respect is built into all RAID courses at the course-design stage and we believe this is the best way of respecting diversity. In addition, zeroaggression tutors have the deep-seated attitudes that are congruent with this policy.

The Environment
 
Wherever possible (virtually always) we use paper from sustainable resources, i.e. from forests continuously grown for paper manufacture. This is important because all course delegates receive extensive workbooks and these consume hundreds of thousands of sheets of paper annually.

Tutors
 
To be a RAID tutor is a significant accolade. Tutors are selected by reference to a range of ten different criteria, each individually rated by two independent referees. To maintain one's status as a tutor, one has to sustain very high (specified) ratings on the two key variables of presentation quality and relevance to course delegates.

Course Development
 
Course development is a full-time job for us. Every tutor on every course gives written feedback to RAID on how the course was received and whether there could be any improvement in terms of content or balance of the course. These are constantly monitored and assimilated to develop courses to the highest level possible.

Course Evaluation
 
The two most important factors are (a) presentation-quality and (b) relevance. Every delegate rates the course on both these dimensions, and every RAID course has an average rating of 6.x out of 7 on both scales. These are very high ratings. After a course, the sponsor receives a feedback document which contains the feedback from delegates and from the tutor.

Evidence based and Relevant
 
RAID targets the approaches that are shown to have the most effect when working with aggressors. We then put together courses that combine theory and practice in a way that is easy to grasp and easy to apply safely. Finally we employ experienced and talented people to deliver the courses and add their unique input.

Morale-boosting
 
RAID courses are designed to offer 'the state of the art' in training. This is because we recognise that the real cost of training is the cost of having so many staff away from their day-to-day work. So the training has not only to be relevant but presented in a way that holds the attention and boosts the enthusiasm and self-esteem of attenders.

Value for money
 
So, RAID courses are absolutely uncompromising in terms of quality. But that does not mean they are expensive, Far from it, they are priced for the helping professions rather than the commercial market, which means you can have the best of both worlds: training of uncompromised quality and realistic prices.

 

 

 
 
THE RAID® COURSE

A relentlessly positive approach to working with extreme behaviour.

RAIDing (Reinforce Appropriate, Implode Disruptive) gives a relentlessly positive philosophy for working with extreme behaviour. Already attended by 12,000 UK professionals, RAIDing is especially relevant to working in secure and semi-secure environments. RAIDing provides a positive approach to be proud of, developing appropriate 'green' behaviour so that it simply overwhelms the problem behaviours in question. Importantly though, RAIDing also tells you what to do when problem behaviour happens.

THE RAID® REFRESHER DAY

The 3-day RAID® course is the UK’s leading positive psychology approach for tackling challenging behaviour at source: over 12,000 professionals have attended it. The purpose of the refresher day is to literally ‘refresh’ delegates who have previously attended the course: to re-invigorate them and to bring them up to speed with any developments that have occurred since they originally attended their training.

MANAGEMENT-RAID®

How to manage people positively, assertively and properly.

The RAID® course receives continuous acclaim. The is the leading strategy for working with the most difficult of people, and delegates quickly said that the approach can be used in more usual management situations. Management-RAID® enables all managers to create the most positive work climate so that motivation is high, litigation and complaints are avoided, and performance is optimised.

After the course delegates feel confident they can manage even the most difficult and sensitive situations. Their team members will also feel pleased that they know where they are going and what they are doing, while the organisation benefits from a relentlessly positive and empowering approach.
