Team Teach is a CPD accredited training framework that is designed to focus on positive behaviour support approaches and relationships with children. It has an emphasis on de-escalation, risk and restraint reduction. In 2015, Team-Teach achieved the broader-based Institute of Conflict Management (ICM) accreditation.
Our Team Teach course covers the principals of understanding and recognising the reasons behind challenging behaviours. Using Team Teach techniques you will be able to de-escalate situations, learn how to have self-restraint, develop skills in positive listening and learning, and discover strategies to reduce the need for restraint or manual handling. Where manual handling is unavoidable the Team Teach course also teaches how to use minimum force for the shortest time, how to prevent injury, pain and distress, and how to maintain dignity for all parties.
The Team Teach courses are perfectly designed to help participants build confidence, improve teamwork, and improve communication skills therefore the training is recommended for both school staff, including teachers and teaching assistants and residential staff, including support workers and managers.
Lots of special educational needs settings use Team Teach or an alternative due to the nature of the provisions and therefore insist on trained staff. Therefore if you are planning on working in a SEN school or residential setting such as a respite centre, children's home or supported living facility this is course is essential for you.
We run the training each half term at a local Midlands based venue which we encourage all of our teaching and teaching support staff to attend. In addition to these sessions, we are also able to run private Team Teach Training for schools. To find out more please send us an enquiry below.
