Level 2 Award: Up-Skilling Door Supervisor Course

You don’t need to re-take your training if you currently hold a Door Supervision license and you are looking to renew it. However, if you attained your original DS qualification before the new QCF qualification was introduced (Summer 2010) then you won’t have undertaken some of the training that people with the newer QCF qualification will have received. You will need to pass the ‘Up-Skilling for Door Supervisors’ award before you can renew your license. The award involves a one day door supervisor course covering physical intervention as well as self-study on topics such as first aid, awareness of terrorist threats and considerations in dealing with children and young people.

Entry requirements Each candidate MUST produce ID in line with SIA requirements. Any candidate who cannot satisfy the ID requirements will be unable to continue the course. The current SIA ID requirements will be sent to you once you enroll. Each candidate will also complete a Basic Skills Agency literacy assessment in line with the awarding body and SIA recommendations. The idea of the assessment is to find the literacy level each candidate is at in order to give assistance throughout the learning process.
