Barking & Dagenham College?s Public Services department has been donated real body armour to help with their training.
Students on the course are being prepared for a career in the emergency services or armed forces.
The donation has come from international body armour manufacturer and distributor SafeGuard Clothing https://www.safeguardclothing.com/uk/. The donated bulletproof vests will help lecturers to better illustrate the working mechanics of safety equipment for front line service operatives with in-class demonstrations.
The tactical equipment will be used for role-play in classes to better illustrate how to make personal safety a priority in dealing with different types of ballistic threats. This will give students better understanding of the equipment law enforcement and military operatives use on a daily basis and the way it impacts their movement, agility and speed.
Thomas Bowman, speaking on behalf of SafeGuard Clothing said:
“We have made it a priority to partner with colleges such as Barking & Dagenham College to offer their students a well-rounded Public Service course.”
Tim Bamforth-White, Head of Department at Barking & Dagenham College commented:
“This kind donation offers students a dynamic learning experience to advance their knowledge and skills in their chosen field.”
