Team Teach

“Comprehensive introduction into the Team Teach ethos including behaviour management strategies and key physical interventions to support pupils and staff. Our aim: through the promotion of de-escalation strategies and the reduction of risk and restraint, to support teaching, learning and caring, by increasing staff confidence and competence, in responding to behaviours that challenge, whilst promoting and protecting positive relationships.”

Although we understand some education settings remain open, as a school we have decided to stop all planned external training currently.

We will still endeavour to offer any support a setting may require.
So please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.

If you think you require any emergency interim training please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us, and we can discuss options which may be available to you.

The Team Teach training we received was extremely useful and informative and delivered exceptionally well.  It will equip our staff to manage conflict and challenging behaviour safely and respectfully which we are confident will help result in positive outcomes’

Crucially, all techniques are situated within a respectful, supportive approach to behaviour management which maintains positive relationships. This course will equip individuals with a good understanding of the values and philosophy of the Team Teach approach.

Positive Behaviour Management Level Two – 12 Hour Course

Positive Behaviour Management Level Two is a two-day course designed to deliver proven, safe strategies for anyone managing challenging behaviour in medium-risk settings. It provides an understanding of the causes of challenging behaviour, along with respectful, supportive and practical strategies for de-escalation and crisis intervention. All techniques that we teach are situated within an approach to behaviour management which seeks to minimise the need for physical intervention and maintain positive relationships.

Aimed at individuals who support people with documented special needs or challenging behaviours, and who may pose a risk to themselves or others, the course will provide a thorough grounding in practical behaviour management strategies. It will equip individuals with a sophisticated understanding of challenging behaviour, and the social and legal context around its management. It will cover strategies of personal safety, team work and de-escalation, as well as teaching effective positive handling techniques: these include guiding, escorting and safe holding in various positions.

The course will also cover documentation and legal guidance, as well as best practice when reporting and reviewing incidents. Everything will be delivered across an invigorating day that is fun whilst also serious, and focused on developing team work, co-operation and morale.

  • Pupil Referral Units

  • Children’s homes

Learning Outcomes

  • They will be equipped with a range of physical techniques, and will therefore be able to apply a commensurate response to challenging behaviour.
