Team Teach is a CPD accredited training framework which aims to equip teaching professionals with the tools they need to understand behaviour and manage challenging situations, which may occur in a school or children’s residential setting (care home, respite centre, etc.), in a respectful and positive manner.
Our Team Teach course covers the principals of understanding and recognising the reasons behind student's challenging and disruptive behaviours. Using Team Teach techniques you will be able to de-escalate situations involving students, 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 for the student, 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 children's residential staff, including support workers and registered 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 about our private courses for your school, then please get in touch.
Please note, our Team Teach Training courses are currently on hold due to the pandemic. We are hoping to be able to resume them later in the year.
