• Positive Approaches to Behaviour

    • Positive Approaches to Behaviour

    High School Education

    Schools lie at the heart of nearly every community, yet significant numbers of teachers experience verbal abuse, threats or even physical assault. Our award-winning training aims to support the prevention and management of workplace conflict and violent behaviours, so that staff, pupils and parents can benefit from positive and safer learning environments.

    Proven experience and expertise

    Schools can become extremely high pressured, stressful environments, which can cause pupils, parents or even staff to act in an irrational manner. 

    If poorly managed, these minor incidents can quickly escalate into aggressive and challenging behaviour, which can represent a safety risk to staff and pupils, as well as potentially damaging the reputation of your school.

    Our comprehensive training aims to ensure that your organisation has effective policies and controls in place to safeguard your staff.

    We believe that most conflict can be avoided or defused through positive communication skills. Alongside these proactive strategies to reduce conflict and risk, we also teach reactive strategies to safely manage and de-escalate emotive and difficult situations that arise for staff whose role carries heightened safety risks and responsibilities.

    Our training also includes how best to support children with additional needs.

    • Understanding Trauma and Trauma‑Informed Approaches

      Trauma can affect anyone. When a person lives with trauma their brain works differently and their behaviour changes, yet we as a society often respond in unhelpful ways.

      This comprehensive eLearning course seeks to bridge the gap between identifying and understanding trauma, and, responding with intelligence and compassion in a way that opens the door for recovery and a better way forward.

      Designed for people providing care and support to someone affected by trauma, four engaging and informative eLearning modules explore the fundamental concepts of trauma and how it affects the minds, emotions, lives and behaviours of people who experience it and those close to them.

      This comprehensive course provides a great starting point for those embarking on training and qualifications in trauma-informed approaches. It also provides a pragmatic, engaging and practical way for organisations to provide trauma-awareness training to their whole workforce.

      • Psychological trauma and its potential impact. 
      • Individual factors that can create resilience to trauma and the possible signs and symptoms of trauma.
      • Physiological and psychological effects of trauma.
      • Adopting a trauma-informed approach.
