Under SafeGuard’s initiative for enhancing Public Service courses on a regional and national level – the brand has been donating bulletproof vests to colleges across the UK. Nottingham College is the latest to receive one of their premium body vest and implement a new in-class approach in teaching public service students about threats and protection. Through role-play and demonstrations – teachers can offer a more detailed, realistic and valuable insight into NIJ-mandated standards for safety and industry-adopted materials like Kevlar.
Donations like this from SafeGuard enable Nottingham College to provide a more rounded program that enriches student knowledge of protection and safety. This gives them the opportunity to gain first-hand experience of using the latest equipment in the industry. As a result, students will be better educated on the working mechanics behind the design and structure.
In an increasingly volatile global environment, students will benefit from classes that are stimulating and informative. Now, teachers at Nottingham College can supplement their theoretic knowledge with the best-in-the-industry equipment – the result of years of research and advancements.
We believe access to body armour should be something all students in Public Services courses benefit from. Safeguard’s applied industry based model in our manufacturing process is achieved through continuous and strong collaborations with the Police, MOD, Fire Service and Ambulance services. This allows us to really enhance the quality of our tactical vests.Thomas Bowman - Speaking on behalf of SafeGuard Armour and Clothing
