Smarter training will show participants how to tweak their job description in order to make

the job less stressful and more purposeful. It will also cover longer term planning to fit with

the aims and ethos of the school. Behaviour management is another area which may place

library staff under stress and this course will look at the psychology and offer practical

solutions to keep this under control. Overall this course is designed to make library staff

more visible and valuable to the school community and to enable them to work delivering
