Teachers & Support Staff

Equipping teachers and support staff with positive behaviour management strategies

Team Teach are the market leaders in providing positive behavioural management training which transforms outcomes for teachers, support staff and children.

Our training equips teachers, teaching assistants and other staff working in educational environments with practical tools to manage challenging or disruptive behaviour. The approach prioritises de-escalation and communication strategies, reducing the need for physical restraint, and transforming crisis situations into learning opportunities.

Our training is accessible and tailored specifically to the needs of every participant. Our courses are award-winning, practical, solution-focused and delivered by hugely experienced and knowledgeable trainers.

Practical tools for teachers and support staff

We equip every participant on our courses with a full range of behaviour management tools, so that teachers and support workers can respond intelligently and confidently to any situation that may arise. We give them tools that will allow them to not only manage behaviour, but maintain positive relationships while dealing with challenging situations.

Avoiding physical intervention and increasing respect

We value the dignity of the children in your school, who are the real beneficiaries of our training. The Team Teach approach focuses on fostering a positive environment where physical handling is used only as a last resort. Our training emphasises communication and de-escalation, as well as a full understanding of the causes of challenging behaviour, reducing the need for invasive interventions.

Tailored training for every learning environment

In order to ensure that our training is efficient and transformational, every course is designed specifically for the needs of the participants. We talk to every client in advance, ensuring that their course will be responsive to their work environment, and will empower staff to stay safe, support each other, and manage challenging situations in a respectful way.

What our customers say about us

We wanted to ensure that staff were well equipped to effectively handle children’s challenging behaviour, by supporting them with strategies that would enable them to prevent unnecessary escalations of behaviours that could result in harm to the child or others.

Some of our staff have received Team Teach training before and the feedback from these sessions was very positive, so we used Team Teach again.
The course has supported us with strategies that can help us to ensure that children and staff can be kept as safe as possible. It has also given us the opportunity to forward plan and consider potential ways to prevent undesirable behaviour.

The course is of very high quality. The trainer was very open and approachable, he listened carefully to everyone’s needs and expectations and made suitable adaptations to ensure that the learning was as relevant as possible to all attendees.

By completing this course, we’re more equipped to deal with physically challenging behaviour, ensuring that both the child and I stay safe and unharmed. It has made us reflect deeply on scenarios where behaviour has escalated and consider whether there is anymore, we could have done to calm the situation/prevent this. It has also made us reflect more deeply about the wider context of the children involved.
I’d recommend this course to other schools because the course is child-centred and ensures that behaviours are looked at as a form of communication. It encourages participants to consider things from the child’s perspective and then reflect upon actions.

Thank you!
Vanessa Seehra, Early years learning leader, Highlands Primary School

Thank you for organising the training, we enjoyed the training very much.

We booked this training to be fully aware of all the behaviour management strategies we can use to de-escalate all the situations we have to deal with in school on a daily basis. We chose Team Teach because we heard many positive things regarding the training and the core principals of the training matched our behaviour policy.

It has supported our staff to de-escalate behaviour situations. We liked both the theory and the practice of Level One - the mix of the two was great.

The course provided confidence, instilling the correct behaviour management, ethos of the programme. We recommend this course, it was very helpful and catered to our needs.
