Remove the anxiety around behaviour. Find out what you should do this week, next week and over the next two terms. Plan your behaviour approach, interventions, structures and routines the same way you plan the content of your lessons.

Learn how to:

  • Manage behaviour effectively through relentless routines
  • Use recognition to create a consistently positive classroom culture
  • Build and sustain positive working relationships
  • Respond assertively and with compassion
  • Develop your professional persona

This course is suitable for NQT’s, RQT’s and new teachers only.
