Behaviour for Learning


Practical strategies you can apply the very next day
About this course

All our workshops are constantly updated to reflect the current - and ever-changing - circumstances in all schools relating to Covid-19


Is low-level disruption frustrating your students’ progress?

Are you fed up that your teaching time is being lost as a result of dealing with student ‘off task’ behaviour?

Are you disillusioned with a ‘one size fits all’ approach to behaviour management?

Low-level disruption is the bane of the school teacher’s working life. This course will offer realistic solutions that have been proven to work for keeping students on task and minimising costly low-level disruption. We will engage with six methodologies to prevent hundreds of hours being wasted by students' off-task behaviour. This isn’t a behaviour management course that sells just a single way of dealing with all cases of low-level disruption. Quite the opposite, it will provide a variety of solutions to low-level disruption that will be demonstrated and teachers can reflect upon which technique works for them.


All our 3-hour online workshops include: 
  • practical classroom-ready ideas and resources
  • small group size to facilitate interaction and full engagement
  • group/pair work and discussion with the tutor
  • pdf of the course booklet 


Course Outcomes:
  • Participate in an exploration of the six major strategies used to reduce low-level disruption
  • Gain a thorough understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of each system
  • Find out how to tailor each strategy to the way you teach
  • Obtain a wealth of behaviour management tips that you could use tomorrow
