Level 2 BTEC Award in Physical Intervention Skills



These BTEC Awards are intended for anyone who may need to use physical intervention skills in the workplace and will be particularly suitable for those people working:

  • in the protective and security industries, (door supervisors, static and patrolling security guards, court security officers, close protection officers)
  • in the NHS, (Ambulance Service staff, A&E staff, security staff, nurses working with disturbed patients)
  • with children in residential settings
  • with adults who have ‘challenging behaviour’
  • in schools, including special needs schools, teachers and nominated teaching assistants
Aims of these qualifications

The two Awards are designed to provide:
  • broader and enhanced skills for those people in job roles where they regularly manage
  • conflict and who require training in physical intervention skills
  • continuing professional development opportunities for conflict professionals
  • a specific focus for those working in the security industry who need further training following completion of the licence to practise qualifications
  • a specific focus for those working with children and vulnerable adults
  • opportunities for learners to gain a nationally recognised qualification and to develop skills transferable into a range of differing work roles and environments.
Additionally, it provides commissioning agencies, whose risk assessment has identified the delivery of formal training as a priority and primary risk control measure, with an externally verified qualification.

Learners will develop an understanding of:
  • the legal position as regards the use of force and relevant legislation
  • the risks of violence associated with alcohol, drugs, weapons and emotional distress, and with the physical intervention techniques themselves
  • when to use different forms of physical intervention, according to the type of service user (including adults and children) and the risks that physical intervention poses
  • They will also learn how to use physical techniques that may be required to prevent injury or harm to themselves or others, in ways that minimise the risk of death or serious injury to all parties.
The overall grading of the Level 2 BTEC Award in Physical Intervention Skills is a pass, based upon successful completion of 3 units. It is internally assessed and externally verified by subject-specialist external verifiers.
