Achieve, Evidence and Sustain Outstanding Behaviour Improvement

Leading the Difficult Class to Educational Success

5th July 2016  London

With teacher-student rapport and student behaviour, time and time again, emerging as the two leading factors in teacher retention and job satisfaction, this conference aims to boost both through creating a winning learning environment.  Gain accurate insight into the extent to which deficits in the working classroom limit achievement and opportunity for students. Reconcile the tension between educational inclusions, that is, not removing difficult pupils from schools – and the right of all pupils to learn in an atmosphere most conducive to success. When behaviour information is shared, understood and acted upon then we are well placed to address the causes of inappropriate behaviour more effectively. Join today.
