Team Teach Training

Team-Teach provides schools/settings with a series of training sessions which promote positive strategies that can be used by teachers, support workers, health professionals or anyone whose work brings them into contact with challenging behaviour. 

This training is extremely valuable for those wanting to be fully capable in better managing a difficult child or children, using de-escalation techniques and positive handling strategies. It is useful for responding to behaviour management plans within the school/setting and could help demonstrate good practice in a preventative approach to Health and Safety responsibilities.
