Code: DCW/19/0061 Positive Behaviour Management - Children & Young People with Additional Needs (Cancelled)


This course is delivered by our Professional Parent Trainers who have disabled children and so offer a unique perspective on additional needs and receive excellent feedback.

This training aims to improve your overall skills in examining, unpicking and understanding the reasons for challenging behaviour so that you feel equipped to deal with situations which challenge you.

The focus is a positive approach, exploring different strategies and tools which can be used in your setting.  These tools could help settings to reduce and understand the behaviour rather than simply controlling it.

Code: EYFS 20/0093 The Self-Regulated Child in the EYFS

This course will extend your understanding and practice around supporting children to develop their self-regulation, including how to enhance the environment. Ideas will be shared to embed self-regulation strategies into successful early years practice to support improving outcomes for all children including those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

‘The development of self-regulation and executive function is consistently linked with successful learning, including pre-reading skills, early mathematics and problem solving. Strategies that seek to improve learning by increasing self-regulation have an average impact of five additional months’ progress. A number of studies also suggest improving the self-regulation skills of children in the early years is likely to have a lasting positive impact on later learning at school, and also have a positive impact on wider outcomes such as behaviour and persistence.’ Education Endowment Fund—Self-regulation strategies.


Please Note, this course is not behaviour management strategies for children presenting challenges
