Team Teach Level 1 (2 Full Days)

Location: School Based
Delivered by our expert trainers, with current experience in Education, this course will equip individuals with an understanding of the values and philosophy of the Team Teach approach. We are motivated by the need to support the individual with the aim of keeping those who have become distressed safe, as well as those around them.

We believe that all behaviour is communication being driven by experiences and emotions. We deliver a toolkit approach that is 95% understanding behaviours and encouraging de-escalation. The 5% assesses the need for physical intervention in conjunction with a need’s analysis.

Who is this course for?

Anyone who is operating in a low-risk primary or secondary school setting would benefit from this course, which offers a grounding in positive behaviour management strategies applicable across these environments. This course is also suitable for anyone working in low-risk adult or children's service settings.
