Houses of Parliament to Engage in Behavioural Detection Training

An innovative behavioural detection programme developed by one of the UK’s leading learning and development consultancies will be delivered to delegates in the Houses of Parliament.

In partnership with Critical Cinema, a producer of film-based e-learning, MaST have been
commissioned by Houses of Parliament to deliver their Behavioural Detection Analysis course. The delivery of the course will provide delegates with the confidence and capability
to both identify anomalous behaviour and act on their observations.

The entry-level course was developed by both MaST and Critical Cinema to enable the
opportunity to learn from hindsight in this crucial area of responsibility, whilst delivering an
increased understanding of how to build an organisation-wide culture of involvement in risk
mitigation and resilience.

With relevancy to all crowded environments, including airports, rail stations, venues or
retail businesses, the e-learning programme has helped organisation’s in a multitude of
sectors give employees the confidence to assess the baseline of average behaviours and
spot those which are out of the ordinary and conduct an initial resolution conversation.

Houses of Parliament will be the latest organisation to benefit from the immersive film-based course, after recognising the significant training opportunity it represents.

Brian Mitchell, Managing Director at MaST, commented: “We are extremely proud to have
been approached by Houses of Parliament to deliver this e-learning programme. Unlike
others, the Behavioural Detection Analysis course empowers trainees to learn from
experience as they watch potential real-life scenarios portrayed right in front of them by our specialist actors.

Engaging in good behavioural detection practices across an organisation is a vital part of
keeping that organisation strong, and each trainee plays a vital role. Even with all the
technical and AI support available nowadays – CCTV cameras, facial recognition – nothing is more effective at recognising human behaviour … than a human themselves.”

MaST is the UK’s longest established learning and development consultancy. Delivering
global immersive and experiential learning solutions, their expertise was recently
highlighted when they became a Qualifications Network (QNUK) approved centre.

Critical Cinema are a producer of streamlined solutions for the security sector, with key
learnings embedded in 10-minute episodes of a drama series followed by assessment
