Who is this CPD Course for?

You are a teacher who wants to understand the reasons behind a child’s behaviour.

You are a teacher who would like a better understanding of how to create clear strategies and interventions to address challenging behaviour.

You are a teacher who wants to gain confidence and competence in your own skills and using a problem-solving model to support students.

You are a teacher who wants to develop a clear understanding of how to communicate effectively with stakeholders like parents – and to overcome resistance constructively.

You are a teacher who wants to teach to the best of your ability.

"Teachers who are effective classroom managers tend to anticipate problems before they occur. This is then coupled with proactive and supportive strategies that help to keep student actively engaged in learning".

(Kouin, 1970)

By the end of this CPD Course, you will:

  • Know how to build the characteristics of effective behaviour management into your teaching practices easily and quickly, instead of worrying about what to do.
  • Know and understand your role in using the problem-solving model and action plan with students, instead of feeling unsure of what to do.
  • Feel empowered to use the tools and resources shared in the course to communicate effectively with parents and guardians, instead of feeling unsure of how to make your points with clarity.
  • Have confidence in your ability to use digital technologies to support students with SEBD, instead of lacking the confidence and know-how.
  • Be able to support colleagues with challenging behaviour, instead of being unable to help or offer suggestions.
  • Have clear, practical guidance on how to support students feeling the 4 main sensations of anger, fear, pain and pleasure which are behind their displayed behaviour, instead of feeling like you are clueless on how to support them.
