This unit consists of two training exercises, the first designed to last two and a half hours, the second designed to last two hours. Discussion time of around half an hour following each exercise will need to be added to this. The exercises may be undertaken by teams of two or three people enacting the part of the senior management team in an imaginary school or college; alternatively the exercises can be undertaken by members of actual senior management teams from a particular institution. Where an imaginary school or college forms the basis of the exercise it would be advisable for a designated member of the exercise team to imagine that the incident is taking place in his or her actual school or college. This will help to add realism when, for example, the team needs to re-room classes during the first exercise.
