Lanyards for schools and colleges – which to choose

Lanyards have been very common within the workplace for some time. And more recently they have become a common feature within schools and colleges. Affordable and versatile, they are a great way to keep students and staff safe. Their professional look is also reassuring to visitors and parents who enter any school or college using a lanyard, as it is a sign that security is of the utmost importance. There are a number of different ways to use branded lanyards within schools and colleges, and because of that, there are a lot of different options to choose from as well. Let’s take a look:

School security

Security is at the front and centre of many schools to ensure all staff and students are safe. Lanyards are a great way of making sure the right people are in the right place. Different types of lanyards can highlight different roles. For example, visitors might have a different colour to teachers, and teachers may have a different colour to security, cleaning and cooking staff. This form of colour coding can help to easily identify who’s who and further instils reassurance with parents that all security measures are taken and dealt with seriously.

School trips

With many colleges not having a set school uniform, a branded lanyard is a great way to help identify pupils and staff. This is particularly helpful if classes are split up into different groups, so everyone is easily identified and no one is left behind. PVC lanyards with a pouch are also ideal in these situations as emergency contact information and details of the school can be placed within the pouch.

Student identification

Colleges and further education schools tend to give their students lanyards as well as staff. This is a good way to identify students and carry ID cards which might have the dual purpose of letting them enter certain areas of the building depending on their chosen course. They can also work well for lunchtimes and libraries.

Identifying visitors

By providing visitors with a branded lanyard you are clearly showing who should and shouldn’t be within the school premises. There are occasions when additional people may enter a school or a college, say for an open day or a sporting event, so by using visto lanyards you can quickly identify whether anyone untoward is within the school and deal with them quickly and quietly.

Types of lanyard

A lanyard is typically worn around the neck with a clip to attach some form of identification. They are available in a range of styles and fabric such as rpet lanyard, cotton lanyards and pvc lanyards. Depending on the fabric choice, you can then choose to further personalise them by adding names, logos and contact details. Lanyard printing is very versatile, so you can ensure you have the right type of branding to suit your school or college.
