About Us

Staff Defence Ltd has been established since 2009, as a training company, which delivers training courses for individuals and companies. The training courses are designed for employees or individuals, who have personal and travel safety needs, when visiting other companies either in the UK or abroad. Some companies require their employees to visit developing countries to provide the necessary support within either a corporate or military infrastructure. Visits to these somewhat hostile environments can result in being confronted by challenging conditions and situations.

Due to the background of our highly-experienced Training Instructors, Staff Defence can provide the most realistic and authentic training required to empower each individual to overcome whichever unfavourable situation arises. Why is this? This is because most of our Instructors  have lived and worked for many years in antagonistic environments. Not only that, but we pride ourselves on putting our clients first. Our approach means we always strive to ensure that all of your training needs are met from the moment we first hear from you until the end of each course. On completion of one of our courses, we do ask you to complete a Customer Satisfaction Survey. The Survey enables us to receive desired feedback from our clients and to ensure that we do our job to the best of our abilities at all times.

For your information, Staff Defence is an approved centre for the delivery of  the following courses:-

  • Level 3 Award in Hostile Environment Awareness with ProQual
  • Level 2 and 3 Awards in First Aid with Highfield Qualification
  • Conflict Management Level 2 Award with RQF.

This is the reason why we are happy to customise our courses to meet the specific needs of a company or individuals, as and when required. We strongly recommend that you take a look at our Courses page. This page explains in detail what we cover in each course, the price per person, course content, course duration and certification/accreditation.
