Our wide range of courses are always preceded by a full risk assessment along with an in-depth analysis of training needs, to ensure that a fully comprehensive and legally compliant service is provided. All our courses are accredited by mandated bodies such as Edexcel, City & Guilds and the NHS Counter Fraud & Security Management Service.

I have found Defend UK professional, well organised, efficient and approachable in the setting up of the course. I have personally recommended Doug Melia and his colleagues to other schools and organisations” - J. Harrison, All Hallows Catholic High School, Penwortham

“The lessons are well structured and paced and involve safely managed practical activity within a well humoured environment.  Some of our pupils have been disaffected by PE in the past and this course has helped them to be more responsive to physical activity” - H. Pallett, Pleckgate High School, Blackburn

Student Courses

Full session plans and schemes of work are available on request. Courses can be tailored as assemblies, half or full day options, or as super learning day using one hour slots for each group. Our specialist instructors are employed, vetted and trained directly by ourselves and have been selected for their subject specific experience and qualifications.
