Do you have high aspirations for pupils? Are you looking for a way to ensure they meet their potential and don’t disrupt others around them? If the answer is yes, then this course is for you.
How to handle disruptive classroom behaviour
Challenging behaviour is on the rise and taking up an increasing amount of valuable teacher time. This course will equip you to respond to the ‘new normal’ in our schools, harnessing the latest research and insights to ensure all your pupils have the best possible chance of success.
This course will equip you with the knowledge and understanding you need to respond to today’s challenges, from loud disruptors to quietly disengaged pupils. Build your confidence and skillset to maintain a calm, productive classroom in an increasingly complex world.
"We don't have children exiting classrooms and there's not the same behaviour that means they are missing out on learning. The data speaks for itself about the impact of Thrive on our school."
Ideal for all teachers, support staff and ITT students.
Teachers increasingly report spending too much time on behaviour management – often with limited positive impact. This course seeks to change that.
"We have seen academic progress improve and the number of emotional disregulations has halved, much of which is due to our commitment to Thrive principles, because of the relationships it helps to build between staff and pupils."
Understanding how the brain develops during childhood and adolescence enables educators to support pupils more effectively as they grow.
This course will equip you with the knowledge and understanding you need to maintain a calm, productive classroom. This includes information about what causes poor behaviour, the latest thinking on different types of behaviour – and critically what you can do about it. We will explore strategies for responding in the moment and how to improve behaviour in the long term.
The course is structured into two virtual training sessions, each three hours long:
Session 1: Understanding behaviour
Lots of things may be happening in a child or teenagers brain when they act out. In this session you will learn how to decode their actions and identify underlying causes, putting you back in the driving seat and ready to respond effectively. Uncover the neuroscience behind pupil behaviour and strengthen your ability to consciously create relationships of trust, dignity and support with your pupils.
Session 2: Responding to behaviour
In this session we draw together the latest neuroscience and evidence of what works in behaviour management to give you a straight forward roadmap for success in the classroom. Discover practical ways to implement the best practice principles set out by Behaviour Hubs, the Education Endowment Foundation's '6 recommendations for improving behaviour in schools' and the Children and Young People's Mental Health Coalition's 'Behaviour and Mental Health in Schools' report in practice.
By the end of the course, you will be equipped with new tips, tools and techniques to address changing behaviour patterns in the classroom using a shame-sensitive, non-judgemental approach.
