About the course

The SSTUWA has made safety a priority in the face of a rising number of attacks against teachers and school leaders.  Everybody deserves to work in a safe environment.  The union continues its commitment to this and we invite members and non-members to register  for the inaugural Safety in Our Schools Conference.  This will be an opportunity to participate in discussions that address how to respond and prevent violence in our schools.

Phil Britten will share his story of personnel resilience against violence. Drawing on his unique real-life experience of
triumph over tragedy with burns to 60% of his body following a terrorist bomb attack, Phil is able to connect with his
audience on a personal level, driving home the importance of taking action NOW. Phil is dedicated to supporting safety
in the workplace and keeping all children safe at school. Phil and his team continue to create be-spoke training courses
across arange of industries and most importantly in education contexts.  the team is committed to helping teachers deal with violence at work.
