Course introduction

Effective behaviour management is key to improving behaviour and ensuring all children have access to education. The Behaviour Lead plays a crucial role in managing, monitoring and improving behaviour, yet training is often received ‘on the job’. During this master course common scenarios will be examined and best approaches discussed.

This step-by-step training will take you through essential skills needed to develop your role and will support and develop knowledge and understanding around key issues such as behaviour guidance, whole school approach, school and classroom behaviour management, learning and achievement, supporting SEND, working with staff, pupils and parents.

"Both workplace and home situations can benefit from the sound advice of Andrea’s wealth of experience mixed with her sense of humour, both of which shine through. Thank-you for raising my awareness, answering my questions and helping me support my wife in her journey through this emotional minefield when she has felt lost and overwhelmed."

"Andrea has the ability to help people get comfortable with the uncomfortable. Her delivery is high energy and high impact and the feedback from our people has been very positive. I'd highly recommend her."

Excellent conference tackling strategies to improve attendance. Speakers were engaging and offered practical suggestions to implement. Another excellent day with NSMTC. I would highly recommend.
