Positive SEND Behaviour Management

Engagement – Strategies and solutions to promote positive behaviour and attitudes.

Supporting engagement and positive behaviour is central to success and achievement in a class, department and across a school. This course will help colleagues to explore strategies, solutions and approaches to help overcome even the most challenging and complex behaviours faced in school.

Expert practitioners will guide and support colleagues in exploring a number of areas that impact on behaviour and attitudes in our schools. In addition to the 2 CPLD sessions delegates will receive a visit to their setting from one of our expert practitioners to support the implementation of strategies and ensure our training has maximum impact on students and staff back at school.
