4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
This pair of connected sessions is about effective classroom behaviour for all teachers who want to refresh and deepen their skills and understanding in this vital area.
The sessions will be based on Patrick Garton’s well received book ‘Understanding and Developing Positive Behaviours in Schools’ part of the acclaimed series of Essential Guides for Early Career Teachers’ and all participants will receive a copy of the book when they book.
These sessions will offer key psychological insights into the factors that lie behind different behaviours as well as practical approaches that you will be able to implement immediately. The sessions will help you understand and manage your own behaviours as well as those of the children and young people you teach. You will gain useful approaches to working successfully with whole groups as well as individual pupils.
We have designed this course to provide participants with the opportunity to reflect on and implement different approaches during the two week gap between each session. The final 30 minutes of the second session will include a live Q&A session for participants to ask questions directly. Participants will therefore gain most from the course if they attend both sessions.
This pair of sessions is ideal for Early Career Teachers and all teachers looking to refresh their thinking about behaviour.
Dates for the sessions are
Monday 4th December 2023 4.00 – 5.00 pm and
Monday 18th December 2023 4.00 – 5.30 pm. To gain the most from this course participants should attend both sessions.
Cost £40 per person and includes a copy of ‘Understanding and Developing Positive Behaviours in Schools’ by Patrick Garton
Patrick Garton the facilitator for these sessions, has worked in schools for over 25 years as a teacher, faculty leader, senior leader, Headteacher and teacher trainer. He is currently Director of Oxfordshire Teacher Training which trains dozens of primary and secondary teachers each year. He will draw on his recent book ‘Understanding and developing positive behaviour in schools’.
