NSW Institute of Teachers Endorsed Provider - Scope of Endorsement

Attend one of our courses to gain Proficient Teacher accredited CPD points or train as a trainer to gain accredited Teacher Identified Professional Develpment. Trainers bring the capability and flexibility to deliver Maybo's endorsed programmes when and where staff need it. Contact us to discuss which of our courses and training options will best meet the needs of your staff and your school.

The content of Maybo's courses has been carefully tailored to build on existing knowledge and experience and give teaching staff a deeper understanding of the causes of conflict. During the training we equip them with practical skills and knowledge to prevent and defuse situations caused by challenging and aggressive behaviour such as resolving confrontation between pupils, communicating with aggressive parents, dealing with trespassers on school grounds and responding to challenging behaviour from pupils towards staff.

After attending a conflict management course delegates will be better able to:

  • Recognise and reduce risks surrounding conflict and behaviours that challenge
  • Understand human behaviour and the function of behaviours that challenge e.g. unmet needs
  • Recognise and reduce triggers of conflict and escalation
  • Develop positive interactions that build good relationships with students and their families
  • Defuse, calm and resolve emotive situations
  • Maintain personal safety and work as a team

  • Understand underpinning legal, medical and professional considerations concerning use of physical interventions relevant to their setting
  • Recognise the importance of proactive strategies to reduce use of force and restrictive practices
  • Avoid assaults through safer working practices and positioning when supporting service users
  • Disengage from an assault and remove oneself and others from risk
  • Re-direct and guide service users using positive communications and low arousal skills
  • De-escalate interventions and provide positive support to those involved
  • Report and account professionally for actions and facilitate learning for staff, service users and organisation
