Understanding and supporting EBSA – Strategies that work to reduce avoidance – A transformative training session.

This informative and empowering training provides a unique perspective on EBSA – a key area of challenge for schools. Sandra has first-hand, professional and lived-experience of EBSA and delivers this training to cut through common assumptions, mis-conceptions and misunderstanding, to ensure participants have a true and comprehensive picture of the problem and proven, successful strategies to support students and their families.

Participants will learn about the interplay between emotions, the brain, and learning, as well as common triggers for emotional distress and anxiety and reasons for avoidance in students.

Strategies grounded in neuroscience and inclusive practices will be shared to help participants recognise signs of emotional distress, create supportive classroom environments, and provide individualised support to anxious children.

Additionally, the session emphasises the importance of professional curiosity, relationships and belonging, empathy and acceptance in order to foster the well-being of all.

This session is suitable for Teachers, Senior Leaders, Middle Leaders, Teaching Assistants and Pastoral Support Staff in all phases.

Sandra Tibbles is an education consultant, trainer and former mainstream and special
school Headteacher and SENDCO. She began her 25 + year teaching career as a drama teacher within mainstream secondary education, and has since worked throughout the education sector, spanning all ages and key stages across local authority maintained, multi academy trust operated, community, and independent schools both in the UK and internationally.

Sandra’s work with schools has creativity and wellbeing at its core and she passionately advocates for inclusive practice, applying key principles of neuroscience, and her extensive knowledge and experience of special educational needs provision, to meet the needs of all learners.

Sandra is a LinkedIn ‘Top Educational Leadership Voice’ and she writes, develops and delivers training about inclusive educational practices at conferences, events and across educational platforms.
