COVID-19 Testing Support

“We have been delighted by the support Watchword Security gave us in developing 3 Testing Sites at very short notice and ensuring a sympathetic and efficient operation. They were particularly good in raising the confidence of staff and ensuring they followed safe practices. They always worked flexibly with us enabling us to respond well to what was a challenging and rapidly changing situation.” Penny Wycherley – Interim Principal and CEO, Highbury College

Your priority is keeping staff and students safe, while continuing to deliver quality education. We understand the weight of that responsibility and know first hand the time and effort required to carry out effective Covid-19 testing. Led by former British Army officers with extensive experience operating Government test centres, our trained teams are ready to conduct rapid testing for your students and staff at scale. We give you peace of mind and enable your staff to focus on teaching and administration.

  • Members of our team, including our Managing Director, were responsible for training and supporting military and civilian Covid-19 testing teams in the South East of England in 2020.
  • Our team includes ex-military and reservist officers, instructors and medics.
  • Team members are trained according to Government guidelines.
  • Our experience in the education sector makes us aware of your unique challenges, as well as the paramount importance of the student experience.
  • We’ll arrange regular catch-ups with you to review our performance and adapt our approach to your feedback.
  • You’ll have access to 24/7 support from our team.
The team we deployed to Highbury College is managed by seasoned Army officers and soldiers with many months of experience delivering Covid-19 testing at scale. Our safety protocols and operational processes are the result of thorough training. We also understand how stressful testing can be and know how to put staff and students at ease. We continue to support Highbury’s three testing sites.

We can provide a fully trained team with a dedicated project manager to prepare your Covid-19 testing site and operate it for as long as you need. If you choose to dedicate your own staff to your testing team, we can provide additional team members to fill key roles. If needed, we’ll take charge of planning, health and safety, team coordination, reporting, quality control and all other associated tasks, so your team can focus on their primary roles.

We want our organisation to live our values:
Respect for our customers and our employees.
Trusted staff with the integrity to do the right thing every day.
Working practices which promote self-discipline and the highest standards.
We are loyal to one another, our customers and our partners.
