The dynamics in some classes can be such that colleagues feel they are putting far too much energy into ‘managing behaviour’ and not enough into teaching and learning, Whilst looking at individual behavioural needs, this course has a specific focus upon group dynamics and how to move from a ‘tricky’ class to a ‘winning class’.


Participants will have:

  • Greater clarity as to what the precise underlying needs their class presents with – and how best to respond to these

  • An i understanding of group dynamics – and how to utilise this in order to promote greater cohesion within a class

  • A wider range of strategies for developing pupils’ self-regulation and self-management

  • Increased their toolkit of strategies for a) proactively promoting and teaching behaviours for learning and b) managing challenging behaviours when they arise
