About this event
This ProtectED Reflections event is the third webinar in the series 'Safeguarding the Student Experience'.
The ProtectED Code of Practice highlights the evolving role of security as a student-facing service, taking a holistic view of student safety and wellbeing. Key strategic policies, processes and practices govern the effective delivery of university safety and security, including:
- Partnership working
- Threat and Risk Management
- Crisis Management (including business continuity)
- Operational Security
- People (including employment of staff engaged in security).
All the above continue to be tested by demands put on staff in responding to the challenges of Covid-19.
This webinar will discuss how the effective management and delivery of security services has changed due to Covid-19 and what impact such changes may have on practice going forward.
We are very pleased to welcome our speakers for this event:
- Oliver Curran, Deputy Security Manager at University College London; London Regional Chair of the Association of University Chief Security Officers (AUCSO); and Board Member at Security Commonwealth
- William McMahon. Head of Security at the University of Central Lancashire.
Olliver and William will be interviewed by Professor Caroline Davey, one of the founders and Directors of ProtectED, after which they will answer questions from attendees.
Student safety, security and wellbeing are key factors in both student retention and recruitment. Students (and their parents) are increasingly considering campus safety and security when choosing their prospective university. This is especially true for international students
Caroline will discuss with Oliver and William how they have had to adapt 'normal' security processes and implement new ways of working to ensure students, staff and the campus remain safe during lockdown — and how this has created new practices for a post-Covid future.
We look forward to you joining us.
