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 training is suitable for professionals in both educational and residential provisions.
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.
Our courses are designed to help participants build confidence, improve teamwork, and improve communication skills, therefore, we think everyone should complete a course.
Most special educational needs settings will insist on all staff being Team Teach trained due to the nature of the provisions. Team-Teach allows participants to understand why behaviours are displayed before having to resort to restraint and always ensures that the participant understands the risk assessment process. Team Teach course participants are taught there very important words: Reasonable, Proportionate, and Necessary. They learn to keep these words top of mind whenever they are risk assessing a situation.
