    Engage and Motivate Your Class

    This course is based upon 4 ‘P’ principles which enable children (and teachers) to find fulfilment in their working day. Born out of personal experience, it builds a framework for classroom learning in which children and teachers are able to explore their potential in a mutually supportive and positive environment. Developed within primary schools (although with the potential for secondary application), these principles can change the atmosphere of learning for everyone.

    Improve the Behaviour of Challenging Girls

    Behaviour is a whole-school issue, and challenging behaviour manifests across all genders. This course looks beyond the stereotypes at the real and observed challenges that may relate to some girls. We are drawing on a range of sources and research in order to encourage discussions as to what those challenges are, how gender specific issues and approaches need to be critiqued and contextualised,  and how to address those challenges in a whole-school and classroom context that enables everyone to be heard and valued.

    Promote Emotional Regulation in Autistic Children

    Life can be pretty challenging for autistic children as they try to fit within a world that doesn’t always make sense to them on terms that don’t quite work for them.  Sometimes, anxiety, anger or sheer exhaustion can bubble over and result in challenging behaviour which is distressing both for the child and the adults supporting them.  There is a lot that we can do to change the environment rather than the child, but this course focuses in on how we can support autistic children to recognise and regulate how they’re feeling, to give them the best chance of managing alongside their peers because maybe the whole world needs to change, but until that happens, these simple ideas can change how the world feels for the child you’re supporting.

    This course is suitable for any adult working with or caring for an autistic child or, to be honest, any child.  As with so much of the work we do for children special needs, these ideas are widely applicable and will do good (and certainly no harm) for any child but will do especial good with children who are (or might be) autistic.

You start to dread period 3 on a Tuesday (or most mornings if you’re in Primary or Early Years…) You feel like you’re losing control of yourself and any supposed learning that should be going on… All is not lost. You can turn these classes around. This course leads you through key strategies and actionable approaches that help you step back, re-evaluate, re-establish routines, relationships and a focus on learning – all whilst looking after yourself. The strategies have actionable points that help you actually implement them with your classes. This course is suitable as independent CPD for early career teachers, or as a guide for mentors and managers to use to support staff.
