Aims of the course

  •  Understand the causes of behaviour
  • Explore the manifestations of behaviour
  • Change you to change them
  • Learn how to manage and improve student behaviour


Course Outline

  • Behaviour: nature or nurture?  ‘Discuss!’
  • Environmental impact.  ‘Classroom, school, home, peers ….’
  • Recognising behaviour; understanding triggers and motivations. ‘Is that normal?’  What is going to happen next?’ ‘Is it my fault?’
  • Learn how to manage yourself and model behaviour.  ‘The first person that needs to calm down is me!’
  • Proactive behaviour management strategies.  ‘Wow, this really works!’
  • Boundaries and routines.  ‘Where is their line?’  ‘Where is your line?’ 
  • Behaviour interventions.  ‘When do I intervene?’ ‘They need to own their own behaviour, don’t they?’
  • Managing confrontation. ‘What did the conflict curve say again?’
  • Sanction and reward.  ‘Positive or negative reinforcement?’


We have experience of successfully speaking, training and supporting across primary schools, upper schools (secondary and grammar), pupil referral units, health/care settings and international policy makers.
