Team Teach is a CPD accredited training framework that is designed to focus on positive behaviour support approaches and relationships, with an emphasis on de-escalation, risk and restraint reduction. In 2015, Team-Teach achieved the broader-based Institute of Conflict Management (ICM) accreditation. Team-Teach teaches positive handling strategies for responding and managing behaviours.
Team Teach teaches participants the principals of understanding and recognising the reasons behind challenging behaviours. Such understanding helps educators de-escalate situations, learning how to have self-restraint, developing skills in positive listening and learning, and discovering strategies to reduce the need for restraint or manual handling. For situations where manual handling cannot be avoided, 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.
Most special educational needs settings will insist on all staff being Team Teach trained due to the nature of the provisions so, if you are planning on working in a SEN school or residential setting this is course is essential for you.
We run Team Teach courses each half-term which any of our teaching or support staff are welcome to attend. We also run private sessions for schools too. If you would like to know more about our upcoming Team Teach course or reserve a space, submit an enquiry below.
