Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

Leading on from the behaviour-focused courses in the NUT programme, this certificated training will provide participants with psychological models for encouraging healthy emotional development, material for using TA directly with students and developing a whole school strategy, and ideas for getting the best out of pupils, parents and colleagues. The course is targeted at all professionals and leads to the internationally recognised Introductory Certificate in Transactional Analysis.


Evidence underpinning this approach

All our courses are delivered by experts in their field and the various ideas, theories, techniques and strategies are founded in educational research.

How users/participants can evaluate success

Teachers can match up their progress in the classroom against their memo to me (what they aim to action from this course at their school). Another copy of this will be sent to all teachers 7-8 weeks after the course with form inviting them to assess/analyse implementation and learning so far and plans how to take things forward. This is for personal as well as professional development.

Follow-up activities and support

Teachers will have the opportunity to reflect and share their TA activities with the group at the follow-up event. They will be encouraged to feedback on experiences in their classrooms and how they have implemented ideas/strategies from the course

Group feedback during the course is circulated to participants and they are made aware of new research or developments in that particular field of education (that could be taken further, i.e. professional enquiry and/or university accreditation).
