Special Assistance Team (SAT) Training: Looking Forward

As a Kenyon Team Member you could be called upon to deploy at short notice and be expected to work at the highest professional standard. In the year where one of our annual objectives is to focus on delivering current operations effectively, it is vital that we have a team that is actively prepared. One way of fulfilling this mandate is by providing training to our Team Members that equips them with the skills necessary to confidently and competently fulfil their role.

The Family Assistance Centre (FAC) management team and SAT Members provide a vital service in the provision of effective family assistance. They provide the interface between survivors, family and friends of the Person Directly Affected (PDA) and the various people, agencies, and organisations involved in the response. It is a crucial role, which greatly impacts the overall success or failure of any response.

So, I am pleased to announce that Kenyon is due to launch a new and improved Family Assistance and SAT Member Training in November 2019. The plan is to offer Team Members worldwide an opportunity to attend this course. We hope to deliver training for UK Team Members in the last quarter of this year.

For Team Members based internationally, we will offer opportunities to attend this exciting training in a country near you in 2020. Please keep a look out for emails concerning the roll out of this training programme. We encourage Team Members to RSVP as soon as possible to secure a place. For Team Members who may not gain a place, please be reassured that we will be offering more courses in the future.

We look forward to meeting many of you at one of our training days.
