Positive Handling Strategies are constantly being evaluated, with safety being paramount. The number of serious incidents / restraints should decrease following training.
Training will help employers and employees meet their obligations under Health and Safety legislation thus reducing potential liability claims.
Learning outcomes and behaviour should improve through the provision of safe learning and caring.
The training has a fun element. It will reduce stress, enhancing team-work, co-operation and staff morale.
Courses are quality controlled and assured with all training summary evaluation reports being produced as evidence of best value. these summary reports are sent to the Director of Team Teach for acknowledgement and comment.
The Positive Handling Strategies have sufficient range and flexibility to be appropriate across the age and development range, for both the intentional and non-intentionally "challenging" individual. Training enables staff to feel more confident and competent in their management of disruptive and "challenging" behaviour , reducing stress by increasing safety and security for all involved.
Dr Sarah Evans of the University of Wales conducted a project (November 2014) evidencing the benefits of Team Teach training: " When assessing students there was a clear improvement in behaviour management techniques...All participants were awarded certification which enhances their CV and can enable them to work in more challenging / vulnerable settings with an increased awareness of the legal framework and apply appropriate de-escalation...when observed both formatively and summatively students have increased skills in behaviour management in professional settings, most notably in the mental health field.."
