Paul Brennan B.A. (Hons) Cert Ed

Co-Director (Training Development)

Paul joined the Royal Corps of Signals when he was 16 years old and completed two tours of duty in Germany before successfully completing selection for 264 S.A.S. Signal Squadron in 1983. For the next eight years he served as a Special Forces communicator, engaged in training and operations around the world in often highly challenging circumstances. It was during this time that he was exposed to some of the most realistic and effective skills based training imaginable. Paul gained an incredibly wide range of operational experience around the world and obtained many training related qualifications including Jungle Warfare Instructor, Combat Survival Instructor and Physical Training Instructor. In 1991 having achieved all he had set out to achieve Paul made the decision to leave the army and joined West Mercia Police. However his military experience continued in the T.A. with several years as a specialist trainer with the West Midlands Specialist Training team.

Paul initially qualified as an armed response officer and was involved in a number of live firearms operations. In 1996 he was appointed the tactical trainer for the Telford division, responsible for planning and implementing the training and delivery of all defensive tactics and public order training within the division. He was fully qualified in all aspects of police defensive tactics to train the trainer level and also many related subjects such as methods of entry, manual handling and water safety. As a national public order tactical advisor he gave tactical advice to senior commanders on a number of high profile events and incidents of public disorder. Paul also produced many of the training programmes used throughout the force and as the most qualified and experienced trainer was often called upon to provide expert witness testimony and detailed reports in cases related to the use of force.

Paul has amassed a wide range of educational qualifications including a first class honours degree in Adult Education and is a qualified assessor and internal verifier. Whilst completing his degree he began to research in depth the link between training and application in high stress situations. This continuing research subsequently formed the basis for the nationally accredited and operationally proven Counter Aggression and Response to Emergencies (C.A.R.E.) system. This is a unique programme designed to counter aggression and violence in the workplace. The system is based on extensive operational experience, sound educational theory and ongoing research. As well as designing high quality presentations and training materials, Paul has developed a number of commercially successful e learning programmes. He continues to develop and refine his graphic design skills and is currently studying to qualify as a Certified Security Consultant.
