BTEC Level 1 - Award in Antisocial behaviour awareness (SRF)

The BTEC level One Award in Antisocial behaviour awareness (SRF) is a  one-day classroom-based course.


It is becoming increasingly recognised that delivering an effective Community Safety / ASB service requires specific skills and knowledge. This course enables you to understand the fundamental community safety role and how the tools available can be used to support individuals and communities. This is ideal if you’re starting out or looking to add credibility to your organisation.

Who should attend?

If you are embarking on a career in ASB or community safety or wishing to gain qualifications in community safety and antisocial behaviour setting our level one course is the perfect place to start the learning journey.

It will also appeal to those who need a refresh, to begin a formal qualification route to back up their experience, or who work closely / alongside community safety teams to gain an insight including contact centre staff, community wardens, housing officers, PCSO’s and police officers.

Course introduction

The ability to successfully address antisocial behaviour requires an awareness of what antisocial behaviour is and how different forms are defined; the impact that the various forms have on the lives of people affected by it and how to record it once it has come to attention. This course will provide learners with knowledge of the various defined forms of antisocial behaviour, how to identify vulnerable victims and how to record antisocial behaviour so that an appropriate response can be generated to deal with it.

In this course, the learners will explore a common definition of antisocial behaviour and guidance as to how it is to be interpreted and also the opportunity to investigate three subcategories of antisocial behaviour being, nuisance, environmental and targeted antisocial behaviour will be identified and explained. Knowledge of how to identify vulnerable victims will be taught tougher with the three broad factors that make victims at higher risk; being history, vulnerability and support. The course will provide knowledge of the importance of accurate record keeping and appropriate referrals.
