    Abstract

    The purpose of the small project is to examine the training given to Door Supervisors as part of occupational licensing and to critically assess its relevance to the role carried out by Door Supervisors within the night time economy by addressing four key questions. The first question addresses what training is given to Door Supervisors in England and Wales both pre and post the introduction of the Private Security Industry Act 2001. The second question addresses the strengths and weaknesses of the training with respect to its application in the workplace. The third question considers how the training could be tailored to better meet the needs of the job role and the fourth looks at the use of processes, procedures to supplement the the training.
    To achieve this the researcher selected a small cohort of operational staff and trainers from across the Door Supervisor sector and gathered information from them in a combination of survey and semi structured interview. A literature review was conducted to consider existing academic knowledge.
    The results showed a degree of correlation between the literature available and the responses of those who participated. The project found that operational staff do not feel that the training they receive represents the hazards of violence encountered within the workplace and that the reporting of crimes and other issues is hampered by a perception of sanction from the Police.
