Team Teach provides accredited, award-winning positive behavioural management training which can transform behaviour, culture and practice in SEND schools.
Our courses, tailored to the unique needs of each school, will equip your team with a wide variety of skills for understanding and managing challenging behaviour, reducing conflict and minimising serious incidents.
We believe the staff and students at your SEND school deserve to be safe, and to be treated with respect and dignity: our approach to behaviour management promotes de-escalation and communication over physical intervention wherever possible, and seeks to build and preserve positive relationships.
We will discuss with your school your requirements, and how our training can help to meet them. We carefully design the content and delivery of training so that it complements and works alongside your current practice, and so that individuals can put strategies into action confidently and quickly.
Our approach to behaviour management is holistic. Our courses provide an understanding of the causes of disruptive behaviour and teach effective communication techniques for de-escalation, as well as safe positive handling. The aim is always to reduce the need for restraint, and increase the safety of your school.
Our courses are all created by practitioners with over 20 years’ experience delivering innovative and proven behaviour management solutions for the education sector. We are the market leader because our training is reasoned, researched and shown to be transformative for staff working with learning disabilities, autism and other special educational needs.
Our 6-hour course is relevant to ancillary staff in special needs settings for who may need a basic understanding of positive behaviour strategies in order to offer witness support.
Our advanced modules teach a range of risk-reduction, positive-handling and intervention strategies for responding to extreme dangerous behaviour in high-risk special educational needs settings.
Two levels of instructor courses equip individuals with the tools and confidence they need to lead on and assist positive behaviour management training in their organisation.
A three-hour course designed for parents and carers to learn positive behaviour strategies to maintain healthy and happy relationships with their children at home.
Our digital learning Mental Fitness course promotes self-awareness and self-reflection equipping teachers, support staff, children and young people to deal with mental health issues through positive behaviour techniques.
The switch to Team Teach this year has really complimented our holistic approach to positive behaviour support at Abbot’s Lea School. The senior Team Teach trainers have provided an extremely personalised approach that has helped us to consider how to best meet all needs at our school, with a clear focus on reducing risk and restraint. We have been able to use some of our own case studies during training, to plan for better support and positive change.
A Team Teach 12-hour course was delivered to all staff in September, and the feedback received from that course was fantastic. Our school has adopted and embraced the new consistent approach to behaviour support well, using the help-script to offer support to colleagues and students.
It should also be noted that the service we have received from Head Office, in relation to booking courses, has been overwhelmingly positive. We never have to wait for long to hear a response, and we have felt as though the advisers and trainers have really taken the time to understand and meet our needs as an organisation.
We are still in the early stages of using Team Teach after historic use of an alternative approach, but we have felt well supported by the materials that are easily accessed from the Team Teach website and the support available from senior trainers.

Team Teach is a tried and trusted package which we have used for many years in our SEMH setting. It encompasses everything our pupils need; from low level de-escalation in the classroom, up to diffusing high levels of aggression using techniques that are well thought out. The course deliverers understand the behaviours we deal with and are able to speak from first-hand experience, which only adds to the integrity of the course content.
