Security in Education Conference: Improving student safety and wellbeing
What do you think is the most important factor that directly relates to the student recruitment, retention and overall experience?
Security is the most powerful influence when it comes to the choice of a university from the perspective of both the parents, and prospective students. However, the definition of security, as well as the elements that collectively contribute to the sense of safety and wellbeing, has been moving away from the traditional ‘security guard in a uniform’ view. Therefore, the matter is extremely complex, and it expands way further than guarding the building access or patrolling accommodation facilities out of hours.
Salford Professional Development, for the third time, will bring leading organisations and experts to give a comprehensive review of the current state of Security in Education. The only event of its kind in the North West, it will also bridge the gaps between safety, wellbeing, crime prevention as well as mental health that all contribute to the overall sense of security.
Previous feedback includes:
‘’This was my first time at this event and found all the speakers very knowledgeable in their subjects and helpful when asked questions on a one to one basis’’ (2018)
Join us for this very informative day, which will provide tangible solutions and ideas to take away to your organisation. You will also have an opportunity to ask questions and engage in conversation with experts on crime prevention, counter terrorism, suicide prevention and many more!
