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

Working with author and trainer Sue Cowley, you will explore:

  • developing positive teaching styles
  • the role of verbal and non-verbal communication in managing behaviour and practical strategies for improving behaviour
  • the link between teaching, lesson content and pupil engagement
  • good practice in induction, support and mentoring
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

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).


This course does not have any pre-booked dates available. Please contact the provider directly to arrange this training.
