ABOUT THIS COURSE
Good learner behaviour supports good learning and progress and good learning supports good behaviour; the two are inextricably linked. Yet, in a climate where newly and recently qualified teachers are facing escalating demands to support learners with increasingly challenging behaviours and mental health issues, we need to better understand of the triggers for disruptive behaviours and develop a toolkit that will equip participants to develop a positive behaviour climate for learning in every classroom.
