Aim of the course

The aim of this new D&T Association H&S training course is to provide both new and existing workshop technicians with the essential knowledge and understanding of H&S that will help them to provide quality support to staff and students in schools and colleges.

Who should attend the course?

This training will benefit all workshop technicians in Secondary schools, colleges and other education establishments. The course is suitable for both new technicians wishing to gain a basic understanding of H&S and best practice within a modern D&T department, and will also be of benefit to experienced technicians wishing to extend their existing knowledge and understanding of H&S.


Content of the course

The course provides certification on the D&T Association H&S Training Standards S12HS ‘H&S for Technicians’ and covers 5 key topics, i.e.:


  • Understanding H&S legislation and documentation
  • Supporting the D&T curriculum
  • Ensuring a safe working environment for D&T
  • Managing D&T resources
  • Establishing maintenance procedures


Technicians attending the course will undertake a variety of practical activities to develop their knowledge and understanding of these 5 topics. The course is workshop based, and technicians attending the course should bring along suitable aprons/workshop coats and eye protection to use to complete the practical activities.

Following this introductory course, the D & T Association advises all technicians to attend further training to achieve certification on the Specialist and Specialist Extension Level H&S Training Standards, and in order to develop their practical knowledge, skills and understanding of working across the range of machinery and equipment used in D & T workshops. Refreshments will be provided.
