• Maybo is a leader in conflict management training and workplace violence reduction for the licensed retail sector

    Conflict Management and Personal Safety Training for Bar and Nightclub Staff

    Maybo has played a leading role in raising training standards in the licensed retail industry for over 25 years. Our training enables staff, managers and door supervisors to work together to reduce risk and respond professionally to challenging situations.

    Proven experience and trusted expertise

    Maybo assisted the British Institute of Innkeeping Awarding Body (BIIAB) with the development of employer risk reduction guidance and the first conflict management qualifications for the licensed retail sector.

    Working with BIIAB and Skills for Security we provided the first accredited, nationally recognised physical intervention training programme and we continue to play an influential role advising government regulators and awarding organisations on the development of licensed retail training competencies, qualifications and best practice.

    Maybo's physical intervention programme for door supervisors is the preferred choice for security, event and venue operators and formed a core part of the mandatory training provided to over 20,000 personnel at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

    We believe most conflict can be avoided or defused through good customer service and positive communication skills, however, personal safety risks are greater in some environments, such as where there is heightened risk from alcohol or drugs. Our training curriculum ensures everyone gets the level of training they need for their role.

    eLearning

    Maybo's eLearning programmes utilise the latest learning technologies, realistic scenarios and interactive exercises to offer an engaging self-study learning experience.

    eLearning can play a valuable role within a blended learning strategy, underpinning the knowledge and reducing staff abstraction time, or in some instances as a complete solution. It also works well for induction and refresher training.

    To find out more or for volume purchases contact our team or visit our eLearning store for individual purchases.

    eLearning is also known as self-directed learning. It often precedes Classroom or Virtual Classroom training to provide a foundation of knowledge in advance - this is known as a blended approach.

    Classroom

    Maybo designs and delivers training to meet your requirements and can deliver direct to your staff wherever you need it. We take time to understand your training needs and the unique challenges and scenarios your colleagues face, to ensure our Classroom courses are highly relevant. Learners receive superb resources and certificates with a range of accreditation and qualification options.

    Classroom training can be combined with eLearning to form a blended learning strategy, underpinning the knowledge and reducing staff abstraction time.

    Classroom training is delivered by a trainer at an agreed venue. It is also sometimes called face-to-face or in-person training.

    Virtual Classroom

    Maybo designs and delivers Virtual Classroom training to meet your requirements.

    Virtual Classroom training enables staff to benefit from engaging team training with high-levels of participation delivered remotely by a skilled facilitator over video conferencing software including Zoom and MS Teams.

    Virtual Classroom training can also be combined powerfully with eLearning to form a blended learning strategy, with eLearning underpinning the knowledge and reducing staff abstraction time.

    Virtual Classroom training is live, participatory training delivered remotely by a trainer with video conferencing software.

    Train the Trainer

    Maybo offers a Train the Trainer model that equips experienced trainers to deliver Maybo's accredited training curricula within their own organisation.

    We run regular courses on a variety of subjects that include supporting people with complex needs, positive behaviour support, preventing conflict and behaviours of concern, safer approaches to de-escalation and conflict resolution, personal safety, assault avoidance and low arousal handling skills.
