IQ Security Sector Development Forum 2014

Join IQ at a mini symposium on how the private security industry can recognise and deal with the exploitation of vulnerable people

Delve deeper into the new SIA Licence to Practice content!

IQ is delighted to reveal that we will be holding another meeting of our Security Sector Development Group on the 27th June and we hope to see you there!

As well as providing an opportunity to network and hear the latest sector developments, attendees will have the opportunity to speak with SIA competency manager Tony Holyland and will participate in a session led by Chris Stanway on recognising and dealing with the exploitation of vulnerable people, which should prove invaluable for anyone involved in delivering the new SIA content

All those who attend will of course receive an IQ professional development attendance certificate to evidence their CPD.

There is no cost to attend and lunch will be provided so be sure to confirm your place by emailing with the name(s) of those attending! If you have any questions about the event please contact Tom Roberts on

We're sure the programme will prove very popular so we have booked a larger venue than in previous years. Please feel free to forward this invitation to anyone else who you think might be interested.

IQ will be sponsoring a free event for centres interested in offering functional skills or apprenticeships at the same location during the afternoon, run by EM Skills, our partner for IQ functional skills provision. You are very welcome to stay for this event too. To book onto the afternoon event please go to

A professional development session from Chris Stanway of Kate Cairns Associates:

In October 2013 the Security Industry Authority (SIA) required that additional content regarding the role of door, guarding and CCTV surveillance staff in protecting vulnerable people from sexual predators be added to the licence to practice qualifications. The content was adapted from materials produced by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre. This session from leading experts in childhood trauma, Kate Cairns Associates, will provide security trainers with a greater insight into this topical and important issue.

The content of this session will enhance your teaching of the new SIA content and increase your understanding of broader aspects of child protection and safeguarding:
  • Understanding trauma
  • Developing skills in recognising and protecting vulnerable people and promoting recovery from trauma
  • Understanding key issues in working with young people in adolescence and adolescent self-harming behaviours
  • Reporting child abuse
All attendees will receive an IQ professional development attendance certificate.
