After the unfortunate death of Pradyuman, many schools have approached the SSSDC, seeking help in carrying out safety audits of their institutions.

Mr Singh said that the SSSDC has devised a two-day special teaching module for the security auditors where experienced security personnel will be taught about specialised ways of dealing with the safety and security of school children.

New Delhi: Amid growing concerns over the safety and security of children following the killing of seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur at Ryan International School in Gurgaon, the Security Sector Skill Development Council (SSSDC) has offered its expertise to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to carry out safety audits of all schools through its specially-trained auditors besides suggesting ways to keep a tight vigil in these institutes.

The SSSDC has said that it can help schools conduct psychometric testing of deployed personnel to measure their suitability for roles given to them in schools besides finding their mental health status.

SSSDC chairman Kunwar Vikram Singh said: “We have told the CBSE that the SSSDC is eager to help out the management of all schools across India to enhance and strengthen their safety and security preparedness so that such an unfortunate and horrific incident, like the brutal killing of Pradyuman, is not repeated.”

Mr Singh said that the SSSDC has devised a two-day special teaching module for the security auditors where experienced security personnel will be taught about specialised ways of dealing with the safety and security of school children.

“After the unfortunate death of Pradyuman, many schools have approached the SSSDC, seeking help in carrying out safety audits of their institutions. Since security guards today are trained in government approved institutes, which are being run under our supervision and guidance, we have decided to collaborate with the CBSE to help schools improve their safety and security apparatus,” he said.

Giving details about what the SSSDC, which works under the aegis of the National Skill Development Council and the ministry of skill development and entrepreneurship, has proposed to the CBSE, CEO Maj. Gen. A.K. Sakhuja (Retd),said that they have requisite expertise in training “security risk management auditors” for both physical and electronic security systems.
