Fire & Safety School: Fire Safety for Schools & Colleges – Theory Course

Course Overview

With modern education having so many constant demands, it can be a challenge to get the attention of academic and support staff to important issues such as fire safety. Yet with over 1000 school fires every year, financial losses running at over £80m, and tens of thousands of children’s education being disrupted by fires within schools and colleges, maintaining fire safety in educational establishments is an ongoing responsibility which cannot be ignored.

Through reference to fire case histories, statutory guidance, data analysis and acknowledged good practice, this theory only course will enable staff to recognise typical fire hazards and risks in the educational environment and their important role in keeping children safe from fire.
