Mandatory therapeutic crisis intervention (TCI) and physical control in care (PCC) training is provided to all operational staff within the Woodlands Juvenile Justice Centre, and this includes suitable refresher training as appropriate. "Breakaway technique" is a specific element of the PCC training which provides guidance to staff on how to safely remove themselves from dangerous situations.
The existing TCI and PCC training programmes are considered appropriate to meet current requirements. However, further training in relation to mental health is presently being explored.
Local management constantly review and update the risk assessments posed by the young people in the Centre, and should additional training requirements be identified, that will be addressed.
