We offer online and face to face training. Our training programme is for staff in the United Kingdom who work in primary schools, secondary schools, colleges and pupil referral units. The training gives staff, the skills and tools to support students with their behaviour. The programme has been created in collaboration with:
- deputy and assistant headteachers
- support staff
- young people
- youth workers
- social workers
- those who work with excluded students and students at risk of exclusion
- One in four teachers feel that their initial teacher training course did not give them the skills or tools needed to support disruptive pupils ( Teacher Support Network Group, 2014).
- 82% of teachers said that they think there is a widespread behaviour problem in schools today ( NASWUT, Teacher’s Union, 2019).
- 87% of teachers believe that there is an issue of low level disruption amongst the pupils they teach ( NASWUT, Teacher’s Union, 2019).
- Teachers feel misbehaviour is common, and is a major source of teacher stress ( Ofsted, 2019).
