This learning event is right for you if you are a classroom teacher, an education support staff member, a wellbeing coordinator or a Head of School.


This workshop will explore how to effectively manage very difficult students through evidence based research and practice. The skills, knowledge and understandings covered in this workshop will include understanding a strategic approach to behavioural interventions, understanding the conditions necessary for a calm classroom culture, developing a framework of explicit discipline practice across the school, understanding what can make some behaviours so challenging and engaging with parents.

Planning for and managing aggressive, argumentative and non-compliant students is perhaps the most stressful demand on the 21st Century teacher, however, how much do we know about what drives this behaviour and what works?

Key takeaways              

  • an understanding of how our own explicit relational practices can promote positive behaviours
  • the ability to implement a strategic approach to behavioural interventions
  • an understanding of the possible link between brain science and behaviour
  • an ability to engage with parents about what matters for their children
