Managing behaviour for learning NE700

Develop your approach to managing behaviour by building trust and positive relationships with students through this online course for all teachers.


This online course will help you to be proactive about encouraging good behaviour in your classroom and in responding calmly to poor behaviour. 

This is a practical course. We will not delve deeply into theory of behaviour, but will focus on what you need to know to manage and improve the behaviour of your learners, and to re-establish rules and routines.

We will look at working at the sharp end - how to survive and thrive in difficult environments. Even if you are not in this situation at the moment, the emphasis you need to have on calm consistent practice in this environment is good practice in every school.

You’ll learn how to take control, build positive relationships and begin teaching your students the self-discipline they need for effective learning.
