Whether you are a teacher, a teaching assistant, other support staff member, a cover supervisor or a librarian or library assistant in schools any contact with students involves an understanding of behaviour management to keep an appropriate learning environment. This can range from crowd control of large numbers at break times to small groups and individual teaching or supervision. Poor behaviour is often a stressful part of our jobs and these courses can be tailor made for your own situation or for a group so that techniques for effective mannagement can be learned that will be of practical use.
I have worked with Creative Education to deliver many of these courses and have developed my own course
for library staff too. I have written articles and contributed book chapters on the topic in the professional press. My online course for the School Library Association "Working SMARTer" also touches on behaviour management. SP4IL education consultancy has received excellent feedback on these courses.

Sometimes we find ourselves in difficult situations at work facing dilemmas with work colleagues , parents or other adults in our community. I can also provide a range of bespoke courses to help support resolution of such issues or you might decide to investigate a course through Creative Education (see link below). Other courses which can incorportate this aspect of hehaviour management are detailed on the pages of this website under Personal Development and Team Building.
