Safeguarding the Student Experience: The Evolution of Campus Security
Towards effective institutional security (and the benefits during Covid-19)
Time & location
01 Oct 2020, 14:00 – 15:00 BST
About this event
This ProtectED Reflections event second webinar in the series 'Safeguarding the Student Experience'. These explore what safeguarding the student experience really means for universities and HE professionals.
The ProtectED Code of Practice addresses key policies, processes and practices relating to university safety and security. These include:
- Partnership working
- Threat and Risk Management
- Crisis Management (including business continuity)
- Operational Security
- People (including employment of staff engaged in security).
Student safety and wellbeing are key factors in student retention and in recruitment. Students (and their parents) are increasingly considering campus safety and security when choosing their prospective university. This is especially true for international students.
In addition, the effective management and delivery of security services impacts an institution's response to unexpected challenges.
We are very pleased to welcome our speaker for this event:
- Trevor Jones, Chair of the Association of University Chief Security Officers (AUCSO), Head of Security at the University of Salford and co-founder of ProtectED
Trevor will be interviewed by Professor Caroline Davey, one of the founders and Directors of ProtectED, after which he will answer questions from attendees.
Caroline and Trevor will discuss the evolving role of university security services over recent years, and the shift in focus from physical security, to a wider role in supporting student wellbeing and safeguarding the student experience. This has resulted in a broader range of skills being required of university security staff, including mental health support. The recasting of the security role as part of an integrated service delivering student safety, security and wellbeing is at the core of ProtectED.
Trevor will also provide insight into how good practice recommendations in the Core Institutional Safety & Security part of the ProtectED Code of Practice can help institutions dealing with Covid-19.
We look forward to you joining us.
